A geothermal heating and cooling system utilizes heat pump technology in order to both heat and cool your home effectively and efficiently. It does so by putting the heat transfer principle into action. An underground loop system is installed on your property, and this loop system circulates an antifreeze solution that gathers heat from the ground or water surrounding it. This means that the energy used is sustainable and environmentally friendly. The heat pump component of the system uses this heat to keep your home comfortable. Just as with an air source heat pump, a geothermal system is easily reversed to keep your home comfortable during the home cooling season.
Both standard heat pumps and geothermal heating and cooling systems use just a small amount of electricity to heat and cool your home. In many climates, though, geothermal heat pump systems are more effective and reliable. This is due to the fact that the temperatures beneath the ground and underwater tend to be more constant than those in the surrounding air. Without the fluctuations in temperature that open air is susceptible to you can expect a consistent, reliable performance from your new geothermal heating and cooling system.
