Geothermal Heat

Geothermal Heat Pump

Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) use the ground as a source of heat, while air source heat pumps use the outdoor air.

Geothermal heat pumps accomplish this by running a water mixture through piping (“ground loop”) buried in the ground and using an indoor heat pump unit to extract heat from this water. The indoor heat pump unit will then circulate this heat through your home like a traditional heating system. In the summer, this process is reversed and heat from your home is transferred into the ground.

FAQ’SINCENTIVES

What are the benefits?

  • Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient heating and cooling system available–even more efficient than air source heat pumps. If you heat with oil, propane, or electric resistance heat, you could save hundreds to thousands of dollars a year on your heating bill by installing a geothermal heat pump.
  • The Dandelion Air’s monitoring system enables installers to receive alerts, proactively diagnose errors, and perform maintenance remotely; only needing to come out to your home when hands-on maintenance is required.
  • Heat pumps filter and dehumidify air, which can improve the air quality and comfort of your home. In particular, the filtration provided by heat pump systems can significantly reduce allergens in your home, benefiting sensitive individuals. Eliminating or reducing the combustion of fossil fuels in your home improves home safety as well.
  • As the most efficient CH&C technology available, geothermal heat pumps will greatly reduce your carbon footprint and dependence on imported fossil fuels. Using solar PV or other renewable electricity sources can further offset emissions from the electricity powering your heat pump.
    If you’re looking for the most environmentally-friendly heating and cooling system, look no further.
  • All outdoor components of a geothermal system will be buried underground, no need to worry about outdoor aesthetics.
  • Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are not vulnerable to atmospheric conditions because the system components are not exposed to the elements and thus do not have defrost cycles like ASHP systems do.
    This inherent feature of GSHP makes them more efficient throughout the winter and quieter outdoors than air source heat pumps (ASHP).
  • Geothermal can offer a clean whole-home heating and cooling solution without requiring backup heating. Eliminate fossil fuel combustion and associated risks from your home entirely. Geothermal can also heat 40-50% of your home’s hot water at no additional operating cost with an add-on.
