Ground Source Heat Pump

A ground source heat pump is the most efficient heating and cooling system available today.

How it works

A ground source heat pump does not burn any fuel to create heat. It simply transfers the earth's energy to your home or business. It is a complete heating and cooling system operating at up to 350 percent efficiency.

A water and antifreeze solution is circulated through a series of plastic pipes (ground loops) that are buried six to eight feet underground. Ground loops are used to transfer heat, because underground temperatures remain stable. In the heating mode, heat pumps use a typical refrigeration system to extract heat from the ground loops, concentrate the heat and circulate it through standard ductwork.

The system reverses in summer for air conditioning and uses standard ductwork to circulate cool air through your home or business.
