ENERGY FROM THE EARTH'S LARGEST POWER SOURCE. ITSELF.
There’s an invaluable energy source buried right in your own backyard: The earth itself. Forget oil or gas, geothermal systems tap into the relatively consistent temperatures of your yard, pond or well. This ingenious technology runs on electricity but uses the earth’s thermal energy to pre-condition refrigerant used to heat and cool your home so you can enjoy higher energy efficiency inside—no matter how extreme the weather gets outside.
EFFICIENT WITH YOUR ENERGY. AND YOUR BUDGET.
HOW GEOTHERMAL WORKS.
During the heating cycle, a geothermal heat pump uses the earth loop to extract heat from the ground. As the system pulls heat from the loop it distributes it through a conventional duct system as warm air. The same heat energy can also be used for a radiant floor system or domestic hot water heating.
In the cooling mode, the heating process is reversed – creating cool, conditioned air throughout the home. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, heat is extracted from the air in your home and either moved back into the earth loop, or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank.
