Geothermal Systems 101: Understanding Heat Pumps

What Is a Geothermal Heat Pump?

Geothermal SystemA geothermal heat pump is a cooling and heating system that uses the earth as a heat source. In the winter, a geothermal system will draw heat from deep underground. In the summer, this same pump will push warmer air down so, it sinks underneath the surface. 

How Does a Geothermal Heat Pump Work?

Deep underground, temperatures are rather stable. A geothermal system uses this stable environment to your advantage. By installing piping deep underground, your heat pump can easily transfer warm temperatures. Water will flow through underground pipes to successfully transfer heat between your home and the ground below. 

Is a Geothermal System Energy-Efficient?

Geothermal heat pumps are known as high-efficiency heating systems. Since your cooling and heating system does not depend on fossil fuels to decrease and increase temperatures, you’ll use significantly less power and natural resources to keep your home comfortable. In fact, compared to most traditional HVAC units, a geothermal system will use roughly 70% less energy.

How Long Does Installation Take?

While geothermal systems do require underground digging, the actual installation process usually takes just a day or two. Keep in mind, you and your contractors will likely need to plan and survey your property over the course of a couple of weeks beforehand to determine the right place to dig and how large of a unit your home requires.
