Geothermal Heat and Cooling Uses In Your
When it comes to heating and cooling your home, geothermal heat pumps are by far the most efficient
source available. They are over 5 times as efficient as a gas furnace, and twice as efficient as an air
source heat pump. Geothermal uses are gaining in popularity and coming down in price
of purchase and installation.
A geothermal, or ground-source heatpump can be used for both heating and cooling your home.
When the system is in cooling mode it can also give you free hot water.

A ground loop is a heat exchanger that either extracts or adds heat to the ground.
The ground itself is
not a perfect heat sink/source because the energy added to the ground by the loop can change
temperature over time. The principles of this interaction are common in all loop types and will
discussed here. Geothermal systems come in several different configurations, each with its own
strengths and weaknesses.
