Geothermal Ground Source Heating and Cooling Systems – Pure and Simple Energy from the World’s Most Abundant Resource: The Earth Itself

Geothermal heat pumps are 50 to 70% more efficient than ordinary heating systems and 30-60% more efficient than standard air conditioners.

 

That means lower energy costs for you and greater energy savings for the life of the system.

 

The ground around us is a tremendous renewal energy source because it absorbs and stores nearly half of the solar energy radiated by the sun.

 

As a result, the ground remains at a constant, moderate temperature just a few feet below the surface all year round.

6 Benefits of Geothermal Ground Source Heating and Cooling

Efficient Geothermal Heating Without the Dangerous Exhaust Emissions

During the heating season, geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.

 

The colder it is outside, the harder your heating system has to work. As a result, a traditional air source heat pump is limited in the amount of heat it can generate to keep your home warm.

 

In contrast, a geothermal heat pump system takes advantage of the abundant heat that is stored in the ground, consuming significantly less energy as it easily absorbs ground heat via the piping loop buried beneath the surface.

 

This provides tremendous efficiency advantages for geothermal heating.

 

Gas furnaces burn natural gas to provide heat for your home and waste as much as 30% of the fuel in the combustion process. On the other hand, geothermal systems use significantly less energy by collecting heat from the earth, achieving 400-600% efficiencies.

Extreme energy efficiency is why geothermal systems still qualify for generous federal tax credits. An exciting new tax credit is now available for smart home and commercial building owners who install geothermal heating and cooling systems through the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424).

 

H.R. 1424 offers a onetime tax credit of 30% (no maximum) of the total investment for homeowners who install residential ground loop or ground water geothermal heat pumps.

 

A credit of 10% of the total investment is also available (no maximum) for a commercial system installation

Heat and Cool Your Home Using the Earth’s Energy​

 

 1. Energy Efficiency

The most efficient gas furnace has an efficiency rating of about 95%. Geothermal delivers a 400% efficiency rating, meaning 4 units of energy are delivered for every 1 unit of electrical energy.

 

Because geothermal systems are transferring heat, not creating it by burning fuel or consuming electricity to produce a heat source, they operate at much greater efficiencies.

 

Geothermal systems are among the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning systems on the market today, lowering utility costs by up to 70%.

 

2. Quiet Operation

No more sleepless nights for you or your neighbors. Unlike ordinary air conditioners or heat pumps, there is no outdoor unit. Geothermal units operate at very low noise levels, similar in sound volume to a refrigerator.

 

Geothermal units are also very reliable as they are placed inside your home, away from the wear and tear caused by the outdoor elements.

 

 3. Environmental Impact

The EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy recognize geothermal heat pump systems as the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool a home.

 

Unlike other comfort systems, geothermal does not emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other greenhouse gasses which contribute to air quality pollution.

 

Additionally, low electricity demand from geothermal systems help reduce peak grid demand and the need for more electric generating plants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Geothermal heat pump systems are one of the most energy efficient heating and cooling systems available for your home. You may have heard these terms as well:

 

  • Ground source heat pump
  • Water source heat pump
  • Geothermal heating
  • Geothermal heating and cooling

 

4. Clean and Safe

Unlike standard gas furnaces, there is no energy-wasting combustion in a geothermal heating and cooling system, therefore there is no chance of carbon-monoxide poisoning.

 

And, by selecting a high efficiency air cleaner, indoor air quality is greatly improved.

 

5. Life Cycle Cost

Geothermal systems are usually good for 15+ years. A typical air conditioner will last 8-12 years with regular maintenance. The ground loop of the geothermal system (the pipes buried in your yard) has a warranty of 50 years.

 

The ground loop is made up of polypropylene pipe, the same pipe which is used in city gas lines.

 

6. Positive Cash Flow

Geothermal is an investment in your home and energy savings. For many retrofit applications and, especially new construction, the energy savings more than offset the cost of installation over a surprisingly short period of time.

 

Unlike traditional heating and air conditioning systems, the payback on geothermal ground source systems begins the day you install it.

 

With energy savings of up to 70% and a 30% tax credit that offers thousands of dollars in additional savings, the payback is usually earned in 3-8 years.

 

Standard systems draw their heating and cooling ability from the surrounding air and the wide temperature swings mean they have to work that much harder to keep your home comfortable.

 

Geothermal heating and cooling systems are not subject to these energy-robbing inefficiencies. Instead, they take advantage of the stable temperature underground using a piping system, commonly referred to as a “loop”.

 

Water circulates in the loop to exchange heat between your home, the ground source heat pump, and the earth, providing consistent comfort at remarkably high efficiencies.

 

Geothermal water source systems are up to 6X more energy efficient and can cut your heating, cooling, and hot water costs by up to 80%.

Geothermal Cooling is a Breeze!

In the cooling season, geothermal cooling systems capture heat inside your home and transfer it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the ground to create cool, dehumidified air conditioning for your home.

 

Just as in the heating season, the outside air is hottest when you need cooling the most. A traditional air source heat pump is forced to work inefficiently to produce cooling due to the extreme heat present in the air.

 

In contrast, a geothermal heat pump consumes less energy as it easily pumps the heat from inside your home to the cool earth. This makes geothermal cooling significantly more energy efficient.

During the heating season, geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop.

 

This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.

 

The colder it is outside, the harder your heating system has to work. As a result, a traditional air source heat pump is limited in the amount of heat it can generate to keep your home warm.

 

In contrast, a geothermal heat pump system takes advantage of the abundant heat that is stored in the ground, consuming significantly less energy as it easily absorbs ground heat via the piping loop buried beneath the surface.

 

This provides tremendous efficiency advantages for geothermal heating.
