Is a Geothermal Heat Pump Right for Me?

Discover the energy services benefits geothermal heat pumps have to offer homeowners.

Residential Heat Pump

Do you have green, clean energy services on the mind? If so, you may need to learn more about geothermal heat pumps. While many have heard of geothermal heat pumps, few understand the benefits these pumps provide. Geothermal pumps utilize the consistent temperatures of the ground underneath your home to keep your home properly heated or cooled throughout the year. The geothermal process is one of the most efficient methods of keeping your home at the perfect temperature at all times.

How does the geothermal process work?

There are two components of the geothermal process: the earth loop system and a heat pump. The earth loop system is a long tube which is first installed underground and then filled with a water-based solution. Depending on the geology and geography of your home, the earth loop can be installed either vertically or horizontally.

The solution inside of the tube gathers and disperses the heat underground. The heat pump is then responsible for transferring the heat either from the ground to your home. On the other hand, the pump also has the reverse effect during the warmer months, where the pump soaks up the heat from your home and pushes it back underground to keep your house cool.

Why should I choose this method to keep my home comfortable?

The advantage of the geothermal process is that the ground beneath your home provides a constant, clean, and free source of heat. The clean energy keeps your home comfortable year-round, and it costs you less than a traditional heating and cooling system. Since the heat is all produced naturally from the ground, it has month-to-month advantages in keeping your utility bill lower and helps ensure a more consistent air flow in your home.
