Geo Thermal Heat Pumps
The most efficient and eco-friendly choice in home heating and cooling is the Geothermal Heat Pump or GHP. They work by transferring the constant temperature of the earth to your home.To do this they utilize a ground “loop” or underground piping system that circulates water to collect the heat from the ground and then transfers that heat to your home. During the summer months the ground is cooler than the air and in the winter the ground is warmer than the air. This is the reason geothermal heat pumps are much more efficient than traditional heat pumps that use the air to transfer heat.
Although the initial cost of a geothermal system is high, they are still a good investment. In a short period of time, your energy savings will offset the cost of installation. With the lowered cost of operation, geothermal heat pumps can save you as much as 80% on your energy bill.
