How Does a Geothermal System Work?
The secret of geothermal is that the temperature of the Earth remains at a stable level approximately 6–10 feet below the frost line. Regardless of the weather above the ground, the temperature of the Earth at this depth remains stable at around 54°F. A geothermal system accesses this heat using loops buried in the ground that carry a solution of water and antifreeze. It then transfers the energy to the refrigerant inside the indoor heat pump. The operation is very similar to a standard heat pump, except that instead of using the outdoor air as a medium for exchange, a geothermal system uses the Earth. In heating mode, the geothermal system draws heat from the ground and moves it indoors. In cooling mode it removes heat from the indoor and deposits it in the ground.
Because of the stable underground temperature, a geothermal system works more reliably at providing comfortable temperatures around the year. Heat pumps can often struggle with extreme cold. However, geothermal system always has a ready supply of heat from underground to bring indoors. You can also expect reduced utility bills, since geothermal systems can work 3 to 6 times more energy–efficiently than other comfort systems.
Geothermal installation is an extensive project that requires burying loops in the property around a home. How much space this requires will depend on factors such as how much heating and cooling power the system must provide. The condition of the soil, and the local temperatures are equally important. Installers can fit a home for either horizontal loops or vertical loops. Horizontal loops are more efficient and easier to install. Vertical loops take up less space and allow for smaller properties to enjoy the benefits of geothermal.
The first step in installation is to contact specialists in geothermal heating and cooling to survey your land and your home. The specialists will determine if a geothermal system is ideal for you, and how best to install one. Once this is done, you can rely on the experts to handle the labor involved in burying the loops and setting up the indoor heat pump components.
