If you’re looking for a very efficient way to heat and cool your home, then look no further than a geothermal heating and cooling system. Each section of the geothermal system plays an important role in keeping your home at a comfortable temperature. Continue reading to learn more from the experts at Allied Services, Inc.
The Geothermal Loop
The temperature underground is generally constant throughout the year, regardless of how cold or hot it is outside. The zone that maintains this constant temperature is reached through the geothermal loop, which is a path of pipes that extends far enough underground. Water or a solution of water and antifreeze is contained in this network of pipes. This loop system moves the fluid, while either warming or cooling the liquid. Depending on the site, companies can bury the plastic tubing vertically or horizontally. These geothermal loops can also be installed in a suitable body of water. Loops around lakes or ponds are a less expensive solution that achieves comparable effects. You just need to be certain the body of water meets certain criteria.
The Geothermal Heat Pump
The compressor and the heat exchanger, two crucial parts of the geothermal system, are located in the geothermal heat pump, which serves as the machine’s central hub. The heat pump’s function is to circulate heat throughout the system by transferring water or a water mixture through the geothermal loop. Any geothermal loop layout can be connected to the geothermal pump to heat or cool your home or structure.
The Distribution System
The distribution system of geothermal heat pumps distributes hot or cold air throughout your house. The heating and cooling requirements of the building can be met in two different ways – forced air systems are the first. For forced air to move conditioned air throughout the house, ductwork and an air handler are needed. A water-to-water system is the second possibility. Heat will be transferred through pipes that run through the walls or floors of your house. The geothermal loop system, which is connected to the primary geothermal heat pump, is where they get the hot or cold liquid they transport from.
