How does a Geothermal Heat Pump System Work?
What is a geothermal heat pump?
A geothermal heat pump, also known as a ground source heat pump, is becoming a popular, clean, high-efficiency renewable energy technology for heating and cooling homes.
Geothermal heat pumps utilize this constant heat source by transferring and concentrating heat to provide:
1. Heat energy source for space heating
2. Radiator for space cooling
3. The heat source of domestic hot water
How does a geothermal heat pump work?
Geothermal heat pump is an electric cooling device that can transfer energy to and from the earth.
The working principle of geothermal cooling:
Geothermal installations will never see the hot summer air. It collects heat from your home and transfers it to the lower temperature 57° Earth. It does not matter how much outdoor conditions fluctuate; the ground remains relatively stable. Due to the constant temperature of the earth, the cooling efficiency of a geothermal heat pump is more than twice that of any ordinary heat pump or air conditioner.
The working principle of geothermal heating:
To warm your home, an ordinary heat pump reverses to collect outdoor heat from the air and move it indoors. Unfortunately, as the winter temperature drops, there is less and less heat available for collection. Likewise, the exchange process becomes more difficult, and the heat pump is least efficient when you need it for maximum efficiency. Geothermal installations will never see the cold winter air. It draws water from a reservoir with a temperature as high as 57°, concentrates it, and then moves it to your home.
Geothermal heat pump efficiency:
Unlike traditional stoves, which burn expensive and polluting fossil fuels, they can return less than 96 cents of heat for every dollar spent — geothermal heat pumps can return up to $5 for every dollar spent. This is because, unlike a furnace, a geothermal heat pump does not generate heat through combustion-it just collects and moves heat.
Environmentally friendly and cost-effective:
Geothermal systems are considered to be the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective and energy-efficient heating and cooling technology.
Geothermal heat pumps help power companies achieve a significant reduction in peak demand load. By reducing the demand for electrical facilities, geothermal systems reduce the need for new power plants that are usually powered by coal or natural gas.
Compared with the resistance heating system, a typical 2,500-square-foot geothermal system house can save the power company more than 9 tons of coal per year. These systems also minimize the threats of acid rain, air pollution, the greenhouse effect, and global warming issues directly related to the burning of fossil fuels. In fact, installing a geothermal device is equivalent to planting 750 trees or removing a car from the road.
