Winter Heating, Summer Cooling

various loop systems for Geo Thermal installationsIn winter, the ground is warmer than the air, and in summer it is cooler. A Geothermal Heating and Cooling system utilizes the constant temperature of the earth (10 – 12 °C) starting at 5 feet below the ground. By circulating liquid through pipes buried in the ground, the liquid in the pipes becomes the same temperature as the surrounding earth.

A seperate "heat-pump compressor" or exchange unit inside your building or home concentrates the heat in the fluid and uses a heat exchanger to transfer hot or cold air throughout the building.

Geothermal, offers the lowest energy consumption, no greenhouse gas emissions, and lowest operating cost of any available technology for heating and air conditioning every type of building.

Environmental Savings

The secret of a Geothermal system's clean, efficient operation is the earth's ability to store heat. In fact, 50% of the sun's energy that reaches our planet is absorbed into the earth. That's 500 times more energy than all of humanity would need in a year! And it's an unlimited source of energy.

Operating Cost Savings
For each kilowatt of electricity used to run the heat pump, three to four kilowatts of free heat are delivered to the house, giving a geothermal system an average of 400 percent efficiency rating. These numbers translate into significant savings on your utility bills year after year.

Lower Maintenance Costs
Geothermal systems require very little maintenance, needing only regular filter changes (just like a furnace) and periodic checks. Since the loop is buried underground very little stress is placed on it, making it maintenance-free.
