Geothermal Heat Pumps Are the Best Way to Heat, Cool, and Get Hot Water

You deserve a heating and cooling system that's environmentally and economically friendly.

Geothermal heat pumps supply heating, air conditioning, and hot water for homes and buildings using the solar energy stored beneath the ground.

Equipment Involved in a Geothermal Heat Pump

1: Ground Loop

Almost 50% of the sun’s solar energy is absorbed and stored in the earth. Due to this, the temperature four to six feet underground stays between 45°F - 70°F all year long. The geothermal system uses this moderate and stable temperature to move heat from one spot to another using a ground loop field buried in the yard. A water-based solution flows through the series of pipes that make up the ground loop field.

2: Flow Center

The flow center attaches to your unit or is placed on a wall close to the geothermal heat pump. This tool pumps the water-based solution in the ground loop to the geothermal unit in the house or building, allowing the distribution of heating or cooling throughout.

3: Geothermal Heat Pump

The flow center transfers heat (or cooling) from the ground loop system to the home through a geothermal heat pump kept inside the house. The geothermal heat pump then heats or cools the home through main two methods: forced air and/or radiant.

4: Forced Air Heating and Cooling

Forced air systems us an air-handler to distribute heat from the ground to the air in a home or building through a system of ductwork and vents. When air conditioning is needed, the process is reversed. Similar to the way a refrigerator operates, the geothermal heat pump removes heat so cold air moves throughout the home or building.

5: Radiant Heating

Radiant, in-floor heating is known as the most comfortable type of heating. This heating method uses a series of pipes in the floor of a home or building to circulate warm water. This allows for heat to rise from the ground up, heating the space evenly and without drafts or ductwork noise. You could heat an outdoor patio or pool with this method, as well.

6: Hot Water

Most residential Hydron Module Geothermal Heat Pumps come standard with hot water assist, known in the industry as a desuperheater. This technology allows for the geothermal heat pump to assist a hot water heater by capturing excess heat from the unit and transferring it to the water heater. This cuts water heating costs 25% - 40%. Certain geothermal heat pumps can provide 100% of your hot water needs, eliminating the need for a standard hot water heater.

A Geothermal Heat Pump for Every Need

There is a 30% U.S. tax credit for residential geothermal systems placed in service by December 31, 2032. For commercial applications, there is a 30% U.S. tax credit for geothermal systems.
The Inflation Reduction Act, as noted in section 25D of the Internal Revenue Code, includes a 30% U.S. tax credit for installation costs connected to ENERGY STAR qualified geothermal heat pumps. Tax credits will be available through 2034.
