How Does Geothermal Heating and Cooling Work?
The Loop System
The earth absorbs almost 50% of all solar energy and uses that energy to maintain an internal temperature between 50°F and 70°F, depending on the geographic location. Geothermal heating and cooling uses an underground loop system that exchanges energy between your home and the earth to heat or cool your home.
During the winter, the geothermal system absorbs heat from the earth and transfers that heat to water that is circulating inside a sealed underground loop system. The water absorbs this heat from the earth and then carries it to the unit where the heat is compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air throughout your home.
Conversely, in the summer the system reverses and expels heat that is in your home into the cooler earth via the loop system. Geothermal cooling is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly way to create a comfortable climate within your home or office.
Geothermal System Options
Allied Services, Inc. offers several different geothermal heating and cooling options. The loop configurations can either be vertical, horizontal, or submerged in a nearby pond or lake. In many cases, a geothermal well can be substituted for a pond. Since the best choice depends upon the characteristics of your property, once we visit your home, we can tell you which loop system is your best option.
- Vertical loop systems
- Horizontal loop systems
- Pool or lake submerged loop systems
Benefits of Geothermal Heating & Cooling
One of the best parts of geothermal heating and cooling is that saving money and being environmentally friendly are no longer mutually exclusive.

After installing a geothermal system, your monthly utility bills will be lowered dramatically. Homes in the Dayton, Ohio, area can save between $600 and $1,200 annually. That’s a savings of up to 60% when compared to conventional heating systems and cooling systems.
Geothermal units produces less pollution than conventional HVAC systems. Currently, household energy consumption for space conditioning is responsible for nearly 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
