Geothermal heating systems rely on the constant heat of the earth to provide energy for your heating and cooling needs. Underground temperatures range from 45 to 75 degrees. Those consistent temperatures make geothermal energy clean, efficient, and dependable.
Geothermal in the Winter
In winter, the geothermal heat pump, which is installed underground, collects the Earth’s natural heat using a series of pipes called a loop. A device called a desuperheater, coupled with the heat pump’s compressor uses gases to heat water. Fluid circulates through the loop to carry the heat to the compressor, which disperses it throughout the house via ductwork.
Benefits of Geothermal Heating
There are a number of economic and environmental benefits to choosing a geothermal heating and cooling system. Geothermal heat is 100% sustainable. It relies on the heat of the earth’s core. Unlike solar energy which requires sunlight, geothermal systems produce energy in all weather conditions. They don’t depend on importing fuel or the fracking process used to increase domestic fuel production, which means a smaller carbon footprint. On a larger scale, geothermal power plants use less land than coal, wind, or solar plants, consume less water, and emit no greenhouse gases.
Energy Efficiency Benefits
Geothermal heat pumps are mechanically simple and installed below ground, so they are unaffected by weather. Geothermal systems last from 18-23 years—double that of conventional systems, resulting in lower maintenance costs as well as 40% to 60% lower monthly energy bills. For further savings, tax incentives for installing environmentally friendly geothermal heating and cooling systems have been renewed for 2019.
