Geothermal System Benefit

How can a Geothermal System Benefit Me?

Monday, February 29th, 2016 at 11:00 am

If you're in the market for a new heating system, you're probably considering a number of different systems. There are, after all, a myriad of different heating systems available on the market. If you aren't already considering it, though, we suggest adding geothermal technology to your list of possible heating systems. Geothermal heating offers a wide range of unique advantages to homeowners who decide to give it a shot. Let's take a look at how geothermal systems work, and the benefits they provide.

Geothermal Heating Systems

Geothermal systems are heat pumps, which means that they don't burn fuel to generate heat. Instead, they evaporate refrigerant to exchange heat between the home and the outside environment. Most heat pumps do this by siphoning thermal energy from the surrounding air. Geothermal systems, however, rely on subterranean thermal energy instead.

A pipe loop filled with water is buried around 30 feet underground, and is connected to the system inside the home. At that depth, the temperature belowground remains at a fairly constant 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit. This provides the geothermal system with a practically endless supply of renewable thermal energy.

Advantages of Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems possess all the advantages of other heat pump systems. They're more efficient than traditional heating systems, since they don't need fuel to generate heat. They're able to act as either air conditioners or heaters, which saves you money and space that would otherwise go to a separate system. Unlike air source heat pumps, though, geothermal systems don't suffer efficiency losses in extremely cold weather. If you're concerned about the efficiency of your system when the temperature drops to low levels, a geothermal system would be the optimal choice for you.
