What is Geothermal Energy?
Geothermal heat pump systems go by many names: earth-source heat pumps, GeoExchange systems, ground-coupled heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps, and water-source heat pumps. Regardless of what you call it, the basic operation is the same–the exchanging of heat from the earth.
Geothermal energy can be defined by looking at its name. The term begins with “Geo,” which refers to the earth. The second part of the term, “thermal,” refers to heat energy. By putting the two parts together, we arrive at the definition of the term “geothermal”–heat from the earth.
WaterFurnace Geothermal heat pump systems operate by exchanging heat to or from the earth in order to maintain a comfortable climate in your home. The concept is not a new one. In fact geothermal technology has been used for decades in a variety of residential and commercial applications. Recently, however, with the increased concern over rising prices of fossil fuels and their effects on the environment, geothermal energy has been increasing in popularity as a viable alternative “green” energy source that is also environmentally friendly.
Types of Geothermal Installation
WaterFurnace Geothermal Heat Pump Systems employ one of four different installation choices, depending on the size and topography of your property.
- Open Loop Geothermal System
- Closed Loop-Horizontal Geothermal System
- Closed Loop-Vertical Geothermal System
- Pond Loop Geothermal System
Split systems are also available in which a smaller geothermal heat pump unit is installed to work in conjunction with your existing oil or gas furnace. The Geothermal system can be used in these cases to supplement and/or backup your original system.
