Geothermal Systems Provide Energy Independence
Geothermal systems take the power of the sun and the power of your own back yard to provide year-round heating and cooling. Did you know that 40% of sun’s energy is absorbed into the ground in your yard?
In a geothermal system, a buried loop system or heat exchanger captures the stored solar energy in the ground and then sends it back to the system in your home. There are different types of loop systems based on the size of your yard. In fact, that amount of space is important when making the decision to go with geothermal. There has to be enough room for some type of loop system.
How Does Residential Geothermal Technology Work?
Water is circulated through the loop system and sent indoors to the geothermal heat pump. The unit compresses the extracted heat to a higher temperature and delivers it to your home using a normal duct system or radiant heat system. Then, in the summer when you need cooling, the unit absorbs heat from inside the home, collects that heat and sends it through the loop into the ground where it’s absorbed. The cooled loop fluid is now ready to absorb more heat from the home. This is similar to how a refrigerator cools hot food.
