What is Geothermal Heating and Cooling?
Temperatures a few feet below the earth’s surface remain constant throughout the year. Geothermal heating and cooling uses those sub-surface temperatures to control the climate of a home or business. A geothermal HVAC system typically consists of a system of pipes that are buried 4 to 6 feet below the surface, a pump and an indoor control unit. Fluid, usually water, circulates through the pipes. In the winter, that fluid absorbs heat from the ground to heat the building. In the summer, the water absorbs heat from the building and cools as it circulates underground, resulting in lower indoor temperatures.
