Geothermal Heat Pumps use the solar energy stored underground to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for homes and buildings.


Ground Loop Ground Loop

The earth absorbs and stores almost 50% of the sun’s solar energy. Because of this, the temperature four to six feet below ground is moderate and stable staying between 45°F – 70°F. The geothermal system uses this to transfer heat from one place to another using a ground loop field buried in the yard. The loop field circulates a water-based solution through a series of pipes.

Flow Center Flow Center

The flow center resides on your unit or on a wall nearby the geothermal system. It is the tool used to pump the water-based solution in the ground loop to the unit in the house or building so heating or cooling can be dispersed throughout.

Inoor Heat Pump Indoor Heat Pump

The loop field transfers heat to the home through a geothermal heat pump kept indoors. The heat pump provides heating and cooling throughout the home primarily through two methods: forced air and radiant.

Two Ways To Heat or Cool

Solar Panels Forced Air Heating and Cooling

In a forced air system, an air-handler is used to disperse the heat from the ground to the air in a home or building through ductwork and vents. In the cooling mode, the process is simply reversed, and heat is removed so cold air circulates throughout the home or building.

Solar Panels Radiant Heating

Known as the most comfortable type of heating, radiant heating uses a series of pipes under a home or building’s floor to circulate warm water, which heats the entire space evenly. This method can also be used for outdoor patio heat and pool heat.

Hot Water Hot Water

Most GeoComfort Geothermal Systems come standard with a hot water assist, known as a desuperheater. This allows for the system to capture excess heat to assist a hot water heater. This cuts hot water costs 25% – 40%. Geothermal systems can also provide 100% of the hot water needed for a home.

Beyond HVAC

Heated Pools

Snow Melt

Geothermal can be used to heat your pool year round.
Keeping your driveway clear of snow and ice in the winter is a snap using a radiant geothermal heating solution.
