Summer is almost here, and it’s time to make sure that your air conditioning system is ready to keep you cool. For some of us, though, now is the time to find a new method of keeping our home’s cool. If you are in the market for a new air conditioning system this summer, consider installing a geothermal system. Read on to find out more about geothermal heat pumps, and how they can help you.
What is a Geothermal System?
A geothermal system is a heat pump that relies on an underground pipe loop for heat exchange, rather than the outside air. This pipe loop is buried outside the home, usually at a depth of around 30 feet, and is filled with water. During cooling mode, the system in the home absorbs thermal energy from the air and vents it into the water being cycled through it, which is then returned to the pipe loop. Like all heat pumps, a geothermal system is able to offer both heating and cooling functions.
Advantages of Geothermal Systems
A geothermal system is one of the most energy efficient climate control systems available on the planet. It operates just as well as any air conditioning system during the summer, and can heat the home in winter more efficiently than the vast majority of traditional heating systems. If you want to make your home both more energy efficient and more comfortable, a geothermal system is a great way to do it. Just make sure that you have the space available to actually install the system, as it requires more than a lot of systems in that respect.
