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 by being installed in vertical boreholes in the earth’s surface.
Geothermal heating and cooling uses the natural temperature from deep below the ground to draw heat out 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.

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.
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!
