What Is Geothermal Heating & Cooling Technology?
Geothermal heating and cooling is a two-part process that uses a specially designed geothermal heat pump to heat your home in winter and cool it in summer.
This highly sustainable technology contains a system of pipes that use water or a coolant to extract heat energy from underground in winter, using it as a means for heating your home, and reverses the process in summer, extracting heat from inside your home and sending it into the ground as a method of indoor cooling.
Because the temperature underground is fairly constant, this system, called a loop, provides a highly efficient medium for heat exchange between the ground and your home.
Benefits of a Geothermal Heat Pump System
The benefits of geothermal heating and cooling are many, compounding the advantages of each individual benefit and making the cost of purchase and installation of this high-tech, naturally sourced system more than worthwhile for many home and business owners. Energy efficiency is perhaps the number one advantage of the geothermal heat pump, with sustainability following a close second.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, this technology can save you 30 percent to 60 percent on utility costs over conventional heating and cooling technologies. And because these systems use solar heat that’s been absorbed by the ground to heat your home, they have virtually unlimited access to a free and 100-percent renewable natural resource that saves you money.
This also means better indoor air quality than furnace-based systems, since the system doesn’t use combustion to produce heat. It simply collects existing heat from the ground and transfers it into your home.
Other benefits of geothermal heating and cooling include longer system life expectancy (25 years for the indoor components and 50 years for the underground loop), infrequent need for maintenance, quiet operation and lack of an outdoor unit to annoy the neighbors.
