How does geothermal system work?
A geothermal heating and cooling system is an energy-efficient system that uses the natural stable ground temperature to warm homes in the winter and keep them cool in the summer. Geothermal systems have three essential parts:-
- the air handling system that transfers the air
- the groundwater heat exchanger that takes heat from the ground or transfers heat back into the earth
- the geothermal loop that moves heat between the air handling system and the groundwater exchanger.
A geothermal heater is also very energy-efficient. Almost none of the energy used is wasted, so it helps keep heating bills very low during the winter.
Unmatched benefits over traditional heating and cooling systems:-
Geothermal energy is better for the environment than traditional energy sources. The carbon footprint of fossil fuels is much larger than the one associated with using geothermal energy. Using a geothermal system to control your property’s temperature can be more environmentally conscious.
Renewable: We can use geothermal energy for more than a lifetime. Using a renewable source benefits our shared environment and doesn’t contribute as much to the climate crisis.
Sustainable: Geothermal energy is a stable resource and is consistently available, unlike other energy sources such as solar or wind.
Heating and cooling: An impressive aspect of geothermal energy is how efficient it is at heating and cooling. All the system’s parts work to provide structures with sustainable heating and cooling solutions.
No fuel: The process of geothermal heating is natural and doesn’t require any fuel to operate. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources and adversely impact our environment, but geothermal energy represents a healthy alternative.
Reliable: This type of energy source is reliable because we know it will always be available. Other energy sources can be finite and may not be available in the future.
A geothermal system can cut utility bills by 40% compared to conventional heating and cooling systems.
A life expectancy of up to 25 years; ground loops are often warranted for up to 50 years.
