Geothermal Heating System Can Help You

How a Geothermal Heating System Can Help You This Fall

Monday, October 31st, 2016 at 11:00 am

We're a fair bit into fall now, and winter is not far off. Before the days start to get really cold, you're going to want to make sure that you have a reliable heating system installed in your home. If you're looking for a new home heating system before winter starts, consider installing a geothermal heating system. Let's take a look at geothermal heating, and how it can help you this winter.

Geothermal Heating

A geothermal heating system is a heat pump, which means it uses refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. Unlike a standard heat pump, which exchanges heat between the home and the air outside, a geothermal system will transfer heat between the home and the ground. It does this by using a subterranean pipe loop filled with an antifreeze solution or water, which is buried at a depth of between 20-30 feet. That deep underground, the temperature hovers right around 55 degrees Fahrenheit. When in heating mode, the system cycles water from the loop through itself to siphon thermal energy. When in cooling mode, the system vents heat from the home into the loop.

Advantages of Geothermal Heating

The big problem with air source heat pumps is that they become less and less efficient the colder the air outside gets. This is because there is less thermal energy available in the air for the system to use. Geothermal systems, however, always have a practically infinite store of thermal energy available. This allows them to operate at peak efficiency all year-round, even in the middle of winter. If you're looking for an energy efficient way to keep warm this winter, consider installing a geothermal heating system.
