Geothermal systems have been used for many years to heat and cool homes. Today, we are able to improve efficiency even more as a result of new technology. New advances in the industry also allow Geothermal to be more versatile, and can be designed to fit in any space, with multiple configuration options.
Some of those configurations include:
Not only will geothermal provide a more comfortable and cost effective way to heat and cool your home or businesss.
There are many benefits of moving to geothermal, here are just a few:
A geothermal system uses the energy of the sun, stored in the earth, to keep you in comfort all year round. Even in the winter, the earth's temperature is a constant 10 to 15 Degrees C (40-60 Degrees F) six feet below the surface, all year round. This means that you have a steady supply of heat to keep you in comfort, even in the depths of the coldest winter.
The geothermal system consists of a geothermal unit, installed in your home or business, which is attached to a series of pipes buried in the ground. An ethanol and water solution is circulated through the pipes to make them highly efficient conductors of heat. The fluid in the pipes absorbs the heat from the ground and is pumped back into the geothermal unit in the building. The geothermal heat pump extracts the heat from the fluid solution, then distributes the heat throughout the building.
In the summer, the whole process reverses itself. Heat is taken from the air in the building and transferred to the ground.
