Heating And Cooling With Geothermal Heat Pumps

The term geothermal literally means Earth / Geo (heat). Geothermal, or ground source heat pumps, take advantage of constant soil or groundwater temperatures for the condition of your home.

Loop connected with the compressor extracting heat from one side (ground) and pumping it into the heating loop in your home.

This is basically the same process that occurs in your refrigerator: heat is extracted through the compressor and refrigerant loops from the part in your fridge/freezer and is rejected to your home.

In summer, the geothermal heat pump reverses the cycle. When in AC mode, the warmth from the house is rejected to the ground or groundwater.

They will make your home comfortable as efficiently as on a windy day, zero degrees winter as on a 40-degree day. As long as of course, that your house is isolated and tight.

Geothermal heat pumps are also very efficient and a well-designed system will use 25-50% less energy than conventional heating and cooling systems.

This highly efficient and reliable system is designed and installed best by professionals. It is not recommended to make this a DIY project. This system must meet special requirements.

Especially pipes placed on the ground, or down to the groundwater level, must be designed and installed correctly to ensure that your geothermal pump system functions as intended.
