Geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the “free” energy in the earth

As air temperatures change with the seasons, ground temperatures remain stable. Geothermal systems gather the natural warmth or coolness of the ground and transfers it into your home. A geothermal heating and cooling system consists of an earth loop, which is an underground system of pipes, and an indoor unit. In winter when the weather is cold, warmth from the ground is absorbed by the liquid that flows through the loop. This liquid then flows up into the indoor unit, which compresses it into even warmer air and uses it to heat your home. In summer when the weather is hot, the liquid in the system will absorb the heat in your home and deposit it back into the earth, which cools your home.

Advantages of heating and cooling your home with a geothermal system

  1. Less Energy is used. Because geothermal systems use natural heat from the earth and only a small amount of electricity, significantly less energy is needed to achieve the same result. Furnaces use gas, propane, heating oil, or electricity to create heat and distribute it throughout your home, and these energy sources are costly. When it comes to cooling, less electricity is used by a geothermal system because it transfers warm air out of the home rather than working to cool down the warm air in your home.
  2. Safer heat source. When furnaces burn natural gas, propane, and heating oil they produce carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is harmful in high concentrations, which can happen if it is not properly vented or if too much is being created due to a build-up of soot. This is a non-issue with a geothermal system.
  3. Eco-friendly. The carbon monoxide that furnaces produce contributes to greenhouse gases the air. And even though some furnaces and air conditioners use electricity, unfortunately electricity is still being created by burning coal in many areas. Geothermal units also use only a small amount of water, which is recycled throughout the system.
  4. Long lasting. Geothermal heating and cooling systems have been used for many years and have proven to have a long lifespan. The underground loop can last for generations, and the indoor unit will last decades. If the indoor unit does have to be replaced, it is much less expensive than replacing the entire system, loop and all.
