Types of Geothermal Heat Pump Systems
The geothermal heat pump is similar to traditional models. But they do not obtain heat from outdoor air, but to pass the heat into and the ground or water. Because the ground and water temperature are more stable than the temperature, the geothermal device is more efficient. They can reduce your water and electricity costs and increase your house value. They can also eliminate the demand for ugly outdoor machines. Here are some of the most popular geothermal heat pump types:
1. Closed loop
Most geothermal HVAC systems pass through a closed -loop recycling refrigerant or water through plastic or copper tube. In addition to fan and pipeline systems, many closed -loop systems also use radiation heating. The pipes on the wall or the floor can prevent the floor from being cold and keep your family warm. They can also get up or get out of the shower room.
2. Open loop
The opening geothermal system uses well water or nearby lakes or ponds. Water circulates between the pipeline and the water source. The opening system with a water filter can be used as a water heater. Therefore, you never have to worry about maintaining or replacing the current device. Putting the pipes is cheaper than digging a hole in the underground pipeline, and you can use nearby water sources to avoid water costs.
The horizontal geothermal HVAC system usually uses a closed loop. The pipeline is located in the underground horizontal groove. Therefore, you need a large yard without precious landscapes to install this kind of geothermal heat pump.
There are hundreds of feet deep and only a few inches wide in the pipeline of the vertical system. They will not disturb your landscape beautification, but the installation cost is higher. For the horizontal system, they are mostly too hard or more rocks in the soil.
