Pennsylvania Geothermal Heating
In a geothermal heating system, the earth’s heat (the difference between the earth’s temperature and the colder temperature of the outside air) is transferred through buried pipes into a circulating liquid and then transferred again into the building.
In winter, it is much easier to heat with geothermal heat pumps. A regular heat pump has to work hard to fight the outside cold air and generate heat. A lot of energy is used in the process. Compared to this, a Pennsylvania geothermal heat pump simply absorbs the existing ground heat and then transfers it to your home. It consumes less energy and works more efficiently. As compared to a gas furnace that has 98% efficiency, geothermal heat pumps can be 400-600% efficient!
During hot weather, the continually circulating fluid in the pipes ‘picks up’ heat from the building – thus helping to cool it – and transfers it into the earth.
The heat pump, also known as a “ground-source”, is an electrically powered device that uses the natural heat storage ability of the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater to heat and cool your home or business. The heat pump simply moves heat energy form one place to another. The geothermal heat pump removes heat energy stored in the earth and/or the earth’s groundwater and transfers it to the home.
A regular heat pump has to use refrigerants, their compression and circulation to create cooling. Compared to this, a geothermal heat pump simply transfers heat from the hot home to cooler earth. As in geothermal heating, geothermal cooling is more efficient helping you save money.
