According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), Geothermal energy is heat within the earth. The word geothermal comes from the Greek words geo (earth) and thermal (heat). Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source because heat is continuously produced inside the earth. Geothermal systems are among the most efficient, energy-saving, heat pumps on the market. The natural heat and cooling system will give your home years of reliable comfort.
Benefits of Geothermal Heating
Lower Energy Bills
A geothermal system combines stored earth energy with safe electric power; many owners have saved up to 60-70% for heating, cooling, and hot water.
Geothermal systems have proven to be very reliable and require less maintenance. They are installed indoors, so there are less wear and tear caused by the great outdoors.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling System
Closed-loop systems circulate a water-based solution through a “loop system” of a small-diameter underground pipe. They can be installed horizontally, vertically, or in a pond. As the system pulls heat from the loop, it distributes it through a conventional duct system as warm air. In the cooling mode, the heating process is reversed – creating cold, conditioned air throughout the home. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, hot air is removed from your home and either moved back into the earth loop or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank.
