Geothermal Heat Pump Systems can Heat and Cool Homes
Why do you need geothermal heat pump systems?
Imagine a home where the temperature is always comfortable, but the heating and cooling systems are invisible. The system operates efficiently, but does not require extensive maintenance or knowledge of the owner.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems make this vision a reality. Geothermal HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) makes the building live in harmony with the earth underground, using underground temperature to provide heating in winter and cooling in summer.
How does a geothermal heat pump system work?
Your refrigerator will take heat away from its interior and transfer it to your kitchen. A geothermal heat pump uses the same principle, but it transfers heat from the ground to your house (and vice versa). It is realized by circulating long underground pipes filled with liquid (water or antifreeze). These circuits are connected to the geothermal heat pump in your home and used as a stove and air conditioner.
During the heating season, the liquid absorbs heat from the ground and transports it to geothermal heating and cooling devices, and then to the refrigerant coil, where the heat is distributed through forced air or circulation systems. During the cooling season, the process runs in reverse. The pump takes heat from your house and transfers it to the earth. Many units can also provide domestic hot water.
A geothermal heat pump is much more efficient than a traditional heating system because it does not burn fuel to generate heat; it simply transfers existing heat from one place to another. And because the underground temperature remains relatively constant at 50 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, this system requires less energy to cool your home than traditional air-conditioning systems or air-source heat pumps that use outside air as a transmission medium.
Advantages of geothermal heating and cooling systems:
1. High efficiency and energy saving
Geothermal heating and cooling systems rank first in terms of energy efficiency because they can provide more than 5 units of energy for every unit of electrical energy used. Compared with even the best ordinary system, it consumes less than one unit of energy per unit. This means that the efficiency rating exceeds 530%, while the most efficient gas stove is only 98%.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed to operate at low speeds more frequently to provide a stable temperature throughout the home and help eliminate hot or cold spots. They provide the comfort you need to experience to believe.
Due to the extraordinary efficiency of the geothermal heating system, when installation costs are financed, most homeowners save more money on their monthly bills than they pay for the system. Any additional investment in traditional equipment is usually paid back in just a few years, and many homeowners can see a return on investment of 10-20% throughout the life of the system. Ground source heat pumps are the only heating and cooling technology that can give you back.
The geothermal heating and cooling system does not require noisy outdoor equipment, which will interfere with your peaceful environment. We designed the indoor system to be as quiet as possible. Since it runs more stably at a lower speed, the amount of system noise is very small.
5. Environmental protection
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective and energy-efficient heating and cooling technology. These systems also minimize the threats of acid rain, air pollution, greenhouse effect and global warming-these problems are directly related to the burning of fossil fuels. In fact, installing a geothermal device is equivalent to planting 750 trees.
Because the geothermal heating and cooling system does not use natural gas, propane or petroleum for operation, there is no burning, flame or smoke, and no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.
7. Fresh air
Large-scale high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling system filters are the standard configuration of most of our equipment, which can provide excellent indoor air quality and protect your family from dust and pollen.
A compact geothermal heat pump device can provide heating, central air conditioning and supplementary domestic hot water for your entire family. Horizontal, vertical and underflow configurations can be used in a wide range of domestic applications, including new and existing houses.
9. Available all year round
Geothermal is the only renewable energy that can operate reliably 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, making it a reliable renewable energy source. By using unlimited energy on the earth, geothermal heat pumps operate efficiently and effectively throughout the year-rain or shine, day or night, windy or not. No matter what direction your house faces or what climate you live in, your geothermal heat pump system can provide it.
The geothermal heat pump system does not require conspicuous wall-mounted equipment or outdoor equipment, which will bring unsightly decoration to the appearance of your house.
Geothermal devices are not adversely affected by outdoor weather or fuel combustion, so their service life is almost longer than any other heating and cooling system. The average equipment life of a geothermal unit is 25 years, while the rated material life of the underground circuit system exceeds 100 years. The service life of ordinary air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps is usually 15-18 years.
