How Geothermal Heating and Cooling Works

Geothermal heating and cooling systems provide people all over the world with a revolutionary new way of heating and cooling the house, as well as heating water. This type of heating and cooling can take place in any environment or climate, and is based off the production of renewable energy in order to keep your heating and cooling as eco-friendly as possible.

How a Geothermal Heating and Cooling System Help You Save on Energy Cost

If you are a homeowner that is currently paying a utility bill, almost two-thirds of your overall utility bill is due to the heating and cooling as well as heating of water that takes place in your home. The largest part of your utility bill that could be saved could be changed by switching to a cheaper way of heating and cooling your home, as well as finding another way to heat your water for showers and all types of other activities around the house. This means that not only are you saving money by using geothermal heating and cooling systems to keep your family comfortable in both the winter and summer, but you are helping the Earth by switching to a much greener way of controlling the temperature in your house. So, exactly what is geothermal heating and cooling, and how is it accomplished?

How Does a Geothermal Heat Pump Works?

A geothermal heat pump uses the thermal energy that is stored in the ground in order to heat your home. This type of heat pump does work similarly to the way that a normal heat pump does, but it does vary in a few significant ways. A geothermal heat pump simply exchanges heat with the Earth, instead of the outside air. This provides a much more reliable way to heat your home. The temperature of the ground is usually around 70 degrees Fahrenheit which means that by exchanging heat with the Earth, you are able to heat your home at a much cheaper cost.

In a similar way, when the air outside your home becomes warm, your heat pump will not be able to pull cool air into your home and keep you cool. A geothermal heat pump can pump the air from your home underground, and bring in much cooler air that is around 70 degrees, since the Earth is usually at a pretty constant temperature. This can save you an average of $75 on each and every electricity bill that you pay, totaling quite a lot of money over your lifetime!
