How does it work?
Heating and Cooling from the Ground
Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) are renewable energy systems that use the stable temperature of the ground to provide clean and efficient heating and cooling to a building using minimal amounts of electricity.
In the winter, heat is moved out of the warm ground into the building to get heating.
And this energy is supplied by electricity, not the burning of fuel.
GSHPs can provide 3-6 times the amount of energy that they use.
In the summer, heat is moved out of the warm building into the ground to get cooling.
Reduces energy use
Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
Reduces operating costs
Minimally intrusive design
Compatible with existing HVAC equipment
Renewable, sustainable, leading edge technology
These systems are designed to take out only as much energy as they put back over the year.
This balance is what makes geothermal a renewable energy source.
In-ground heat exchangers are specially designed pipes installed to deliver heat between the ground and the heat pump.
They can be installed horizontally or vertically, and are designed based on soil conditions and building requirements.
Unlike other forms of renewable energy, geothermal systems are buried and minimally invasive to a site.
