How Geothermal Heat Pump Installation Works
A geothermal heat pump is a system that can heat or cool your home by transferring heat to or from the ground. Rather than burning fuel, geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth to regulate the temperature of your home or building.
Geothermal heat pumps feature two main components:
- Underground pipes called ground loops
- The geothermal pump inside your home
Residential geothermal heat pumps work similarly to your kitchen’s refrigerator. Because the temperature under the frost line is stable no matter what time of year it is, the amount of heat in the ground remains constant. A solution circulates through the ground loop system, absorbing heat along the way.
The pipes and solution carry this heat inside your home to the geothermal heat pump, exchanging it with liquid refrigerant which creates a hot vapor. Inside a heat exchanger, this vapor is transferred to the air, where it is distributed through your duct system and warms your home.
Benefits of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps can be more cost-effective than traditional heating systems when it comes to energy costs, and they offer several positive environmental impacts. Homeowners may also receive tax credits for installing a geothermal heat pump. (Be sure to ask us about this!)
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are approximately 50,000 geothermal heat pumps installed in the United States each year. Will your home or business be next? If you’re looking for guidance, we’re here to help you make the best decision for your unique situation.
While we can talk all day long about the benefits of geothermal heat pumps, we’re honest about the potential drawbacks too. All heat pumps typically require a significant investment up front, and when Minnesota temperatures drop to a certain degree, sometimes heat pumps need a backup heating system.
