Geothermal: How It Works
Geothermal offers an energy-efficient, cost-effective space conditioning system that taps into the earth to capture its renewable energy. The sun heats the earth, which then stores about 47% of that energy in the ground. Just a few feet below the frost line, the temperature remains between 55 and 70 degrees all year round in many climates.
The sun heats the earth, which stores that energy below ground. That warmth is ready and waiting for a geothermal system to extract it, concentrate it through compression, and to use it to heat your home.
A geothermal system extracts the heat from your home and transfers that heat to the ground. Unlike ordinary cooling systems that dispose of excess heat into hot air, the cool ground just a few feet below the surface is ready to accept that heat.
The Loop: At The Center Of It All
A geothermal earth loop provides the transfer mechanism that moves heat from the earth to your home and vice versa. There are four types of underground loops. We can meet your needs even in as little as 15'X15' of space in some homes
Pipes inserted into vertical bores dug by drilling rig. Used on small lots.
Pipes laid on horizontal trenches, which are then backfilled. Used on larger lots.
Coiled closed loops laid at bottom of nearby body of water.
Well water is drawn into system and discharged into adjacent drainage ditch or pond.
