Geothermal heating and cooling pumps are the way of the future and becoming more and more common as consumers prioritize environmentally-friendly options for their homes. Instead of using air temperature to guide the changes in your home’s temperature, geothermal heating and cooling systems use the ground temperature for maximum energy efficiency and maximum savings. Here is a run-down of everything that you need to know about geothermal heating and cooling.
How Does Geothermal Heating And Cooling Work?
Geothermal heating and cooling use the crust of the earth, or the ground beneath your home, as a way to heat and cool your home. Since ground temperatures are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, geothermal pumps take advantage of that natural condition to keep your home comfortable. Geothermal heating and cooling pumps are not creating any heat, they are just transferring it into or out of your home.
What Is Included In A Geothermal Heating And Cooling System?
Geothermal units use a heat pump and ground loop to maintain the temperature in your home. The ground loop consists of all the underground pipes connected to the heat pump. In the winter, the ground loop circulates water that takes the heat from the earth and brings it back inside to the indoor heat pump. The geothermal heat pump takes the heat and moves it throughout your home in the form of heated air. The water is re-circulated until your home is the right temperature.
In the summer, the indoor heat pump works by taking the hot air from your home and removing the heat, turning the air cold and blowing back throughout your home. Geothermal heating and cooling have been used throughout European countries for many years to keep their homes comfortable, but it is finally becoming more popular in the United States as consumers look for eco-friendly ways to maintain their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
