Geothermal Heat Pump System – An Energy Efficient Heating & Cooling Alternative
The geothermal heat pump system moves heat from the ground to a home through a series of flexible pipe “loops” containing water. The following videos explore the benefits Geothermal and the science behind them.
The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round. However, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter, making traditional heating and cooling less efficient.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop.” Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies.
