What Is Geothermal Energy?
Geothermal energy is the heat from the Earth. It can be found almost anywhere, including your own backyard. Even better, it’s a clean and sustainable source of energy.
How Does It Work?
The upper part of the Earth’s crust, roughly the first ten feet of ground, maintains a fairly consistent temperature between about 50° and 60° F. Geothermal heat pumps can use this energy to heat and cool buildings while using less energy than a typical HVAC system.
Let’s say it’s 5° one night during the winter and you’ve got your thermostat set for a cozy 72° in your home. It takes much less energy to reach your desired temperature if the starting point is 55° using a geothermal heat pump.
Don’t Let The Name Fool You!
Geothermal heat pumps can heat and cool a building. They can even be equipped to provide hot water.
Will It Work In My Building?
Geothermal heat pumps are flexible and can be installed in new construction or retrofitted to work with existing systems.
