All About Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Wouldn’t you want to be in a home where the temperature always feels comfortable but you don’t see the system anywhere? That is a system that efficiently works with even less maintenance. And that system is what’s referred to as geothermal heating and cooling. A geothermal HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) brings your home in harmony with the earth and takes advantage of the subterranean temperatures so it can provide cooling during summer and heating during winter.

How does this system work?

While outdoor temperatures fluctuate, the underground temperature doesn’t change as dramatically. The temperature 4 to 6 feet below the ground remains fairly constant all year round. A geothermal system that consists of buried pipes (earth loop), indoor handling unit, and/or a pump, will capitalize on these temperatures to provide you free energy.

Do not confuse a geothermal HVAC with geothermal energy as the process differs.
