How Does a Geothermal System Work?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems utilize heat transfer technology. This means that they do not consume a fuel in order to heat or air condition your home. Rather, a heat pump transfers existing energy. A small amount of electricity is used to transfer heat into or out of your home, cutting down on the amount of energy used to keep you comfortable. This not only reduces your utility costs but is also great for the environment.
When it is cold out the geothermal heat pump gathers energy from the ground around your home or a water source on your property. This energy is used to heat your home. When it is too warm in your house the process is simply reversed and the geothermal heat pump is able too cool your home down.
Geothermal Loop Systems
The way that geothermal heating and cooling systems are able to make use of this ambient energy is by absorbing it through a loop system. This loop system is either buried beneath the ground or submerged in a body of water on your property. Because temperatures in these environments are more stable than in the air geothermal loop systems are actually more effective and versatile than air–source heat pumps.
In a closed loop system a refrigerant fluid is circulated throughout the loop system. They can be installed vertically or horizontally in the ground, depending on the size and geology of your property. If an appropriate water source is available it can also be submerged. The antifreeze solution absorbs heat, passes through a heat exchanger, and that heat is then used in your home.
If there is an adequate body of water on your property an open loop system may also be used. In this sort of system water itself is used in place of the antifreeze solution. It is pumped through the system in the same way, and once the heat transfer is complete it is dumped directly back into the water source. The body of water in question must meet certain criteria to qualify for the installation of an open loop system.
