Geothermal heat pumps, also referred to as GeoExchange or ground-source heat pumps, have been in use since the 1940s.
Geothermal heat pumps are able to heat, cool and, if so equipped, supply hot water to your home. Some common types of geothermal systems include vertical loop, horizontal loop and closed loop systems. Quiet, durable and unaffected by outdoor air temperature, geothermal systems can reach high efficiency on cold winter nights by using the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium.
While the cost of a geothermal system can be significantly higher than other heating systems, the costs are often returned to you in noticeable energy savings within several years. To learn more about geothermal systems, contact us today.
