Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the relatively constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool homes and business with 40% to 70% less energy than conventional systems. Geothermal energy, a renewable resource, originates from the heat retained within the Earth’s core. At a depth of approximately six feet, the ground remains at a nearly constant temperature of 45°F to 70°F depending on the geographic location, and it changes very little over the course of a year. This mild heat source makes a geothermal heat pump a much more energy-efficient system than the conventional air conditioner or heat pump, which uses the constantly fluctuating outside air temperature.
Geothermal systems can also provide inexpensive hot water, either to supplement or replace the output of a conventional, domestic water heater.
In winter, water circulating inside a sealed loop absorbs heat from the earth and carries it to the unit. Here, it is compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air to your indoor system for distribution throughout your home.
In the summer, the system reverses and expels heat from your home to the cooler earth via the loop system.
A geothermal heating and cooling system is a smart investment for consumers who want a system that provides a high level of comfort and low monthly energy bills for as long as they own their homes. With the Stimulus Bill offering a 30% tax credit for homeowners installing a geothermal heat pump system, there has never been a better time to purchase one.
