What Is Geothermal Heating?
Geothermal heating and cooling units use a series of underground pipes, water, and the earth’s consistent underground temperatures to keep your home comfortable. In the winter months, cold water is sent underground via a pipe and absorbs heat from underground. That warmed water then makes its way indoors to a compressor that then converts that heat into warm air for your home.
During the summer months, that process is reversed. Using those same loops of pipe, the hot water drops in temperature as it runs underground, and then is able to convert into cool air as it enters your home.
While your traditional AC or furnace changes the temperature of the air physically using either a heating element or freon inside the evaporator coils, geothermal heating systems exchanges heat naturally, helping you cut down on costs, while still offering improved air quality and airflow.
