One of the most efficient HVAC systems on the planet, a geothermal heat pump runs on energy found in your own backyard. Powered by the earth's natural heat, it provides year-round comfort while saving you a bundle on heating and cooling.
How Geothermal Technology Works
Like other types of heat pumps, geothermal systems use the cycle of refrigeration to capture heat and move it elsewhere. The evaporator changes the liquid refrigerant into a gas, pulling heat from the surrounding environment. During the summer, a conventional heat pump disburses the collected heat into the air outdoors. When the weather turns wintry, it extracts heat from the air outside and pulls it indoors.
Cooler than outdoor air during the summer and warmer during the winter, the earth's relatively constant temperature allows geothermal systems to streamline the process. Plastic pipes buried in the ground absorb the thermal energy to provide geothermal heating during the winter. When it gets hot outside, they serve as a depositary for the heat pulled from your home.
Adding Up the Savings
How much can you save with geothermal air conditioning and heating? Studies have shown that geothermal heat pumps are more than 45 percent more efficient than standard HVAC systems. That's 45 cents of every dollar you spend on heating and cooling. While geothermal costs more upfront to purchase, you can expect to recoup your investment through energy savings in 5 to 10 years. They also last longer than other types of HVAC systems. The indoor components last around 25 years. With an estimated system life of 50-plus years, the system's underground piping lasts even longer.
