The earth absorbs and stores almost 50% of the sun’s solar energy. Because of this, the temperature four to six feet below ground is moderate and stable staying between 45°F - 70°F. The geothermal system uses this to transfer heat from one place to another using a ground loop field buried in the yard. The loop field circulates a water-based solution through a series of pipes.
The flow center resides on your unit or on a wall nearby the geothermal system. It is the tool used to pump the water-based solution in the ground loop to the unit in the house or building so heating or cooling can be dispersed throughout.
Heating, cooling, and getting some (or all) of your hot water from a geothermal heat pump costs less than a traditional HVAC system. If you chose to finance your geothermal system, it can be paid off with the money you'll save on utility costs.
GeoComfort Geothermal Systems are ridiculously quiet, lower humidity levels, and allow for zoning – so you can control the temperature of the areas you spend the most time in. Our systems are compatible with smart thermostats so you have control from anywhere.
Geothermal heat pumps do not use any fossil fuels, which improves air quality and removes the potential for harmful gas and oil leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, and fires. With geothermal, you can eliminate fossil fuels in your home or building if desired.
