Geothermal heat pumps operate almost exactly the same way as standard heat pumps, except rather than using the fluctuating air temperatures as the heat exchange medium, geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth through the installation of vertical boreholes in the earth’s surface.
Geothermal heating and cooling uses the natural temperature from deep below the ground to draw heat out of your home’s air and cool your home in the summer. It then does the reverse in winter, drawing heat from the ground and pumping that warmer air into your home.
According to the Department of Energy, this allows the system to reach efficiencies of 300-600 percent even on the coldest winter nights, compared to 175-250 percent for air-source heat pumps on cool days. This can dramatically reduce your monthly costs for energy. Geothermal heat pumps with a properly designed earth loop need little or no auxiliary heating.
Use this geothermal savings calculator from ClimateMaster to determine just how much you can save!
Yes! Despite extreme temperatures throughout the year, the ground 20 feet below the earth’s surface remains relatively stable in temperature—making it an extremely reliable heat exchange medium. However, your geothermal heat pump will also be installed with backup heating to ensure your home never lacks for comfort.
Geothermal heat pumps can last an average of 30 years, compared to 14 years for a traditional heat pump, and 15 years for a furnace or central air conditioner.
Growth in the geothermal heating and cooling market averages 12% annually as the demand continues to rise for highly efficient HVAC systems with sustainable energy.
Geothermal system pricing is more competitive than it was a decade ago because there are many more manufacturers selling more efficient heating and cooling systems, and there are also more experienced installers available for installation services.
Most installations take a few weeks due to the digging required, but it’s worth it for 30+ years of reliable, efficient heating and cooling!
Absolutely. Depending on where the loops need to be installed, the installation process may be a bit inconvenient for a family who is living on the property. There are pros and cons to geothermal heat pump installation; however, we feel the benefits greatly outweigh the temporary costs.
Again, we say “somewhat” because not everything will always go by the books. There are some oddball problems we’ve encountered from time to time!
Are you up to date with your annual (or hopefully bi-annual) maintenance? Yes, geothermal systems require less maintenance on average than other systems, but less doesn’t mean none! Clean vents, clear dust and detritus from visible exterior parts, and check for clogs. Still no go? Then let’s move on!
Take a quick look at your thermostat settings. Everything in the correct position? All of the digital reads should be operating properly and be in the correct position for what you’re trying to get your pump to do. If something looks wrong and you can’t fix it, we can!
If your heat pump is refusing to start at all:
