Geothermal Heat Pumps
An Energy-Saving Option to Costly Fossil Fuel Systems
Geothermal heat pumps use the Earth’s natural heat energy for heating and cooling. The ground source heat pumps used by the geothermal system (also called a Geothermal Heat Pump) provide heating in winter by extracting heat from underground and transferring it to your home and extracting your home’s heat back into the ground during summer months.
Geothermal Heat Pumps are similar in operation to the ordinary heat pumps. However, instead of using heat from the outdoor air, geothermal heat pumps rely on the constant Earth temperature to heat and cool your home. The system uses the top layer of Earth’s surface (usually 300-500 feet deep) to transfer heat, and therefor avoids burning fossil fuels to create heat. The result is that these high-efficiency systems produce 4 units of heat energy for every unit used.
Scientific studies have shown that 70% of the energy used by Geothermal Heat Pump System is renewable energy from the ground. Using the Earth’s natural constant energy makes geothermal heat pumps one of the most comfortable, efficient and reliable heating and cooling technologies. Based on research by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Geothermal Heat Pumps produce energy bills 30-40% less than traditional heating and cooling systems.
GeoLogix by Comfort-Aire
Maximum Efficiency for Greatest Savings
At Geothermal by Design, LLC we use GeoLogix - Geothermal High Efficiency Heat Pumps. The GeoLogix is one of the most Efficient heating and cooling systems available, far exceeding industry standards. The two-stage design allows the unit to run at 67% capacity mostly of the time to maintain a constant temperature and healthy humidity level. When there is a demand for greater heating/cooling, such as during weather extremes, the unit instantly shifts to 100% capacity. This part load/full load capability significantly lowers annual operation costs while increasing comfort.
