Introduction to Geothermal HVAC Systems
An hvac closed loop system is an efficient and safe way to warm and cool your home, especially when using geothermal technology. This article will cover some of the different loops you can use when installing a geothermal hvac system.
Horizontal and vertical loop systems are the most cost-effective options. Horizontal loops require a lot of room to operate, so verticle loop systems are good if your land is more confined.
A coiled loop system can be used if there is a pond nearby your home. The piping loops are submerged under the surface of a nearby body of water. This is the fastest and easiest system to install.
Well water can also be used if it has adequate quantity and quality, though this is an open loop system. The water is pumped from the well to the home and then sent back into the water source nearby.
Geothermal heating systems can be used for more than just heating and cooling. They can also provide your home with clean hot water or be installed beneath walkways outside the home to help prevent snow and ice from building up.
Contractors can offer a variety of ways to install geothermal systems in your home. For more information, watch the video above and contact a local geothermal hvac contractor.
