Geothermal Heat Pumps

You hear a lot of talk about solar power these days, but you might be surprised to learn that one of the most promising solutions to high heating and cooling bills isn’t up in the sky, but buried deep under your lawn. Super-efficient Geothermal Heat Pumps provide clean, quiet heating and cooling while cutting utility bills by up to 70 percent.

Ground temperatures are a constant 55 degrees all year no matter what the weather is like. Geothermal works because the ground beneath our feet is warmer than the outside air in the winter and cooler in the summer. Inserting a series of small pipes into the ground allows heat to be transferred to and from your home. In this process heat is not created, it is transported therefore no fuel is burned.

There are 2 Basic Parts to a Geothermal System

  1. Heat Pump – the inside unit known as the heat pump
  2. Ground Loop – underground pipes which connect to the heat pump

Winter Operation:

The underground pipes, called a ground loop, circulate water which absorbs the heat from the earth and returns it to the indoor heat pump. The heat pump extracts the heat from the liquid then distributes it throughout your home as warm air. With the heat removed, the water is re-circulated to collect more heat from the ground. In this case, the loop water is warmer when it comes into the home than when it goes back into the earth since the heat is being removed.
