Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of the stable temperatures of the earth. Temperatures from 6 feet to 500 feet below the Earth’s surface are extremely stable, making it ideal to extract heat for heating or reject heat to provide air conditioning. This stability results in high efficiency reducing heating costs by 20-40% when compared to natural gas.
The great variety of heat pumps in a wide range of configurations allows geothermal to be applied in ducted and non-ducted forced air systems, as well as hydronic heating applications. They can also heat 100% of your domestic water as well as heat your swimming pool.
The availability of rebates and federal & state tax credits maximizes the value proposition.
There are a variety of ways to exchange heat with the earth
- Horizontal Closed Loop
- Vertical Closed Loop
- Pond Loops
- Open Loops
