Geothermal heat pumps are an essential component of an effective geothermal system. The heat pump is the part of the system that is located directly inside of the building and facilitates the transfer of heat inside and outside the building. When you decide to have a geothermal system installed to your home, it will be important to ensure you have the heat pump installed correctly, as well as understand how the geothermal heat pumps works. Our experts at Cache Valley Heating and Air Conditioning provide a broad array of services to ensure the ideal geothermal system inside of your property.
Geothermal systems are effective because they leverage the temperature of the ground roughly five feet beneath the surface. This ground stays at a constant temperature. During the winter months, the ground is warmer than the air inside. In the summer, the ground temperature is cooler than the outside air. This enables the heat pump to transfer the heat in the earth into the building in the winter and out of the building in the summer.
The Parts Of Geothermal Heat Pumps
A geothermal system involves many parts. First, the geothermal heat pump is used to pump the heat in or out of the building. It will reverse the process during the different times of the year to ensure that the building can remain comfortable throughout the year. Second, there is a series of connected pipes that helps to transfer the heat. It circulates a fluid that will help to absorb or relinquish heat to the surrounding ground. Inside the building, there will be a distribution system that will circulate the heat from the pump throughout the building.
Geothermal heat pumps help to ensure that the entire geothermal system is effective. When you work with our experts at Cache Valley Heating and Air Conditioning, you can be confident that you will obtain the right heat pump to meet all of your needs.
