Understanding A Geothermal Heat Pump
A heat pump is basically a reversible air conditioner. It uses a normal cooling cycle to collect heat from the indoor air and pump it out of the home during the summer, then runs in reverse to bring heat into the home during the winter. While air-source heat pumps are somewhat vulnerable to outdoor temperature swings, geothermal heat pumps use the stable temperatures inside the Earth to provide highly efficient climate control.
Types Of Geothermal Systems
While there are several different types of geothermal heat pumps, most use one of three configurations:
- Horizontal Loop: These systems use a relatively wide, shallow underground loop in a horizontal configuration. They're less expensive to install but are also somewhat less efficient in extreme heat and cold. Horizontal loops are most often used for residential applications.
- Vertical Loop: In these systems, the underground loop is dug deep into the ground, taking up little space on the surface level. Vertical loops cost more to install because of the excavation required, but they provide more efficient climate control than horizontal loops. They are generally preferred for commercial and industrial applications.
- Water-Source Loops: These loops can be used if you have a pond or other water feature on your property. If the water is deep enough, this type of loop can provide the most efficient climate control of all.
Our technicians will work with you to help you find the best way to use geothermal energy to heat and cool your home.
Advantages of Geothermal Heating and Cooling
In addition to unmatched energy efficiency, geothermal systems are built for the long haul. The above-ground components of a geothermal heat pump will last 20 to 25 years with minimal maintenance, and the underground loop will last 50 years or more.
