Geothermal heat pumps are just like the ordinary pumps, but they have a slight difference in the way they function. While the ordinary pumps use heat found in the outside air for heating, the geothermal heat pumps use the stable and even heat that originates from the earth. When usingthis kind of pump, you can save a lot of money when it comes to energy costs and at the same time you will be helping the environment.

  2. 2. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps Geothermal heat pumps are just like the ordinary pumps, but they have a slight difference in the way they function. While the ordinary pumps use heat found in the outside air for heating, the geothermal heat pumps use the stable and even heat that originates from the earth.
  3. 3. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps When using this kind of pump, you can save a lot of money when it comes to energy costs and at the same time you will be helping the environment. They works using a mechanism similar to that of a fridge. A fridge usually transfers heat from its interior region and takes it to your kitchen.
  4. 4. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps The pump on the hand either transfers heat from the ground to your house or from your house into the ground if it's cooling. This process is usually facilitated by long underground pipes that are filled with an antifreeze solution or water. The pipes are placed in a loop pattern and they are connected to the geothermal heat pump.
  5. 5. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps When they are used for heating, the antifreeze solution pulls heat from the ground and then takes it to the geothermal unit. After that it is taken to the refrigerant coils where a hydronic or forced air system is used to distribute the heat. But during the cooling season, the reverse happens. They transfer heat from your house into the earth.
  6. 6. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps One advantage of the pumps is that it makes them more efficient is that they do not burn fuel in order to create warmth. They work by simply moving existing heat from one point to another. They require less energy for cooling your home compared to other air source heat pumps and conventional AC systems that use outside air for transferring heat.
  7. 7. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps This is because the temperatures underground are maintained at a relative constant of about 50 degrees Fahrenheit all year round. They also do not have onsite combustion. They use clean and renewable energy that comes directly from the sun. Due to that, they do not have the danger of emitting greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide which are harmful into the environment.
  8. 8. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps You also will not experience any air safety or combustion-related issues in your house when using geothermal pumps. An added benefit is that you can equip them with a device known as desuperheater which is capable of heating household water. It does this by circulating in the regular water heater tank.
  9. 9. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps When the temperatures are high, for instance during summertime, the heat that is transferred from the house is expelled into the loop. It is then used to heat the water. When the temperatures are low, for instance in winter, the desuperheater can help you reduce heating costs in your household by about a half.
  10. 10. What You Should Know About Geothermal Heat Pumps If maintained properly, the indoor components of pumps can last for over 25 years while the ground loop can take more than 50 years. Maintenance that needs to be done to the pumps is usually minimal since they are protected from outdoor elements and they have fewer moving parts.
