Consumers have a lot of choices these days when it comes to heating and cooling systems. One option is right below their feet—taking advantage of the earth’s constant underground temperature nearly 30 feet below the surface. Energy 101: Geothermal Heat Pumps Watch and learn more about geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), also known as ground-source heat pumps, can heat, cool, and even supply hot water to a home by transferring heat to or from the ground. This technology has been keeping consumers comfortable for more than 50 years and can cut energy bills by up to 65% compared to traditional HVAC units. So, if you’re considering installing a GHP system for your home or business, listen up. Here are five things you need to know about geothermal heat pumps. GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMPS CAN BE USED IN ANY CLIMATE Geothermal heat pumps can operate in any climate—hot or cold—because of the earth’s constant underground temperature (from 45° to 75° F depending on location). In fact, millions of GHP systems are already heating and cooling homes and businesses worldwide, and that includes all 50 U.S. states.
According to a U.S. Department of Energy report, more than half of GHP shipments in 2009 went to 10 states: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
Checking & Maintenance
Servicing a geothermal heat pump is not very different from servicing a conventional heat pump. However, a technician should be familiar with the manufacturer’s recommended service checklist before proceeding to service a particular unit. Doing so decreases the likelihood of callbacks when heating or cooling is needed most. It increases customer satisfaction, enabling the homeowner to enjoy all the comfort, economic, and environmental benefits that a geothermal heating and cooling system offers.
