A geothermal heating and cooling system offers a variety of benefits over other heating and air conditioning systems, even traditional heat pumps. While a geothermal system does use a heat pump in its operation, this heat pump does not draw heat from the air around it. Rather, a geothermal loop system is buried on your property and that loop system circulates an antifreeze solution. This allows the system to draw heat from the ground or even a water supply on your property. The benefit to this is the fact that temperatures at this depth are much more constant than in the air, making a geothermal system more dependable and consistent than air source heat pumps.
The biggest benefit of a geothermal heating and cooling system may be the efficiency with which it works. It does not consume a fuel to heat or cool your home but rather uses just a bit of electricity in order to transfer ambient, preexisting heat into or out of your home. This greatly improved efficiency allows you to keep your home comfortable all year long, during the heating and cooling seasons, with just one convenient system. The best part is that it allows you to do so affordably.
