It’s no mystery that geothermal service has been around for many years — in fact, it’s been hard at work since the beginning of time!
We also know that it is the most efficient way to heat and air condition your home. The best question to ask is… How much do you pay for utilities now and how much will you pay for utilities in the future? Is propane eating a hole in your wallet? Geothermal solutions from the geothermal experts are the only heating and cooling investments that can put money in your wallet year after year.
How Geothermal Works
Due to the sun, nearly half of the solar energy is absorbed by the earth. This is why below the frost lines the earths temperature remains a fairly constant temperature of 40-5- degrees farenheight. Instead of trying to heat 10-20 degree outside air, we are transferring and heating 40-50 degree earth ground temperature.
The loop is the heart of a geothermal system. Let’s take a closer look at what the loop is suppose to do and the options we have for you new geothermal system.
The loop absorbs heat from the earth, at the same time the geothermal unit extracts that heat from the earth and mechanically puts into our homes.
In the summertime the opposite effect happens. The geothermal unit extracts heat from you home and dispenses that heat into the earth. The loop is then cooled and the geothermal unit will now dehumidify and mechanically put the cool air into our homes. Geothermal loop service provides a consistent thermal transfer between the earth and your residential or commercial building.
There are several different options when we install a loop system:
If you would like to learn more about each of these geothermal solutions, we suggest starting with the most common loop installed: the horizontal closed loop.
