The EPA states that geothermal systems are the most energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and inexpensive conditioning systems currently available. Very high levels of efficiency are possible because a geothermal heat pump only uses electricity to move heat, not produce it. By utilizing this dependable thermal source, geothermal heat pumps provide energy-efficient comfort all year long.
How a Geothermal Heat Pump Works
A geothermal or “ground source” heat pump is an electrically-powered device which makes use of the natural heat storage capability of the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater to heat and cool your home. Like any sort of heat pump, it simply distributes heat power from one place to another. The geothermal heat pump removes heat energy contained in the earth and/or earth’s groundwater and transfers it to the home. Geothermal systems transfer heat from your house to the earth in the cooling mode, or from the earth to your house in the heat setting. Water is utilized as the heat transfer medium thru a closed loop type piping system buried in the ground.
