Geothermal heating and cooling systems are state of the art to say the least. If you want to know how they work, then all you need to do is take a look below. We have a full explanation for you and it’s fully designed to show you how geothermal works as well as showing you how you could benefit.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling: Great in Winter
During winter, geothermal heating absorbs the heat that is stored in the ground. The heat is then carried through the home and it is a great way for you to get the heating you need without breaking the bank. Of course, when you need heat, the air outside is probably very cold and for this reason, a heat pump isn’t as efficient when compared. A geothermal pump however will use far less energy and it can give your home an endless supply of heat when you need it the most. When you compare geothermal heating next to a gas furnace, you will find that a gas furnace operates on a 98% level of efficiency. A geothermal heater however can operate on a 400-600% level of efficiency so it is a great way for you to save for the future.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems: Great in summer
When you have a geothermal system installed in the summer, the system will absorb heat from inside your home and it will take it to the loop underground. It is then absorbed by the earth and it will return the colder air back into your home. It does all of this through water, so you can already start to see how this could significantly change the value of your home and the way you heat it. Of course, when you compare a geothermal system to an air conditioning system, the system needs to force the hot air out of the home, as well as working hard to make sure that the air that is put back is cold enough. A geothermal system will consume less energy in general, because it brings the heat through the earth and it doesn’t need to work hard to do this either.
Once a geothermal system is installed it practically pays for itself. It is very environmentally friendly and you would be amazed at how effective it is. Of course, this system can also drastically increase the value of your home as well.
