HOW DO GEOTHERMAL SYSTEMS WORK?
The surface of the earth absorbs nearly half of all solar energy on the planet. This means that just under the ground, the temperature remains at a near constant, moderate level year-round. Air temperature is constantly changing with the seasons, which makes traditional air-source heating and cooling systems some of the most inefficient on the market, especially when compared to geothermal heat pumps.
Geothermal systems operate using a unique method known as “hydrothermal circulation.” This system circulates water through underground pipes known as a loop and exchanges heat between your home or business, the heat pump unit, and the ground.
THE BENEFITS OF GEOTHERMAL VERSUS TRADITIONAL
Geothermal energy systems are highly sustainable systems that can decrease your carbon footprint while also increasing energy savings. Compared to traditional systems which rely on a heavy use of fossil fuels to warm or cool a building, geothermal heat pumps use a significantly smaller amount of electricity and rely on the much more efficient and stable temperatures underground to move warm or cool air into your home.
