A geothermal heat pump is often referred to as “geothermal heating” or “geothermal heating and cooling”. It’s a mostly residential system that uses the Earth to help heat or cool a building. Pipes are extended into the ground where refrigerant gets pumped through and brought back up to the house. Heat is exchanged, causing either a cooling or heating effect.
How Does Geothermal Technology Work?
These systems work by tapping into the consistent temperature of the Earth. In winter, geothermal heat pumps take the heat from the ground and bring it to the surface, where the air has cooled. An air-source heat pump, on the other hand, will spend a lot of energy trying to extract heat from the cold air outside, spending more energy.
This works the opposite way in the summer months. Since the air is hotter near the top of the Earth, heat is brought down from your home to the relatively cool soil or water below. This method results in lower energy usage as well as higher efficiency.
