How Do Geothermal Heating Systems Work?
Geothermal Systems – What Are They?
The word ‘geothermal’ is often heard in conjunction with natural springs in Iceland. But the heat of the Earth is of far more utility there than just for warm-water recreation in an otherwise frosty climate; a full 70% of the nation’s entire energy needs are met by geothermal means. Did you know that this energy solution is available to you, too?
It’s a highly elegant system; the Earth’s scorching inner layers house molten rock that produces a phenomenal amount of heat, churning away at thousands of degrees Fahrenheit. On top of that, the Earth absorbs almost half of all the solar-generated energy we receive from the sun. So while the air temperature can vary dramatically from day to day, the ground holds heat in a much more consistent and stable pattern. This sustains a regular, moderate temperature that can be found, and used for home energy needs, at a level just below the Earth’s surface.
Bryant®, the Geothermal Leader
Bryant® geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the Earth’s surface to use this thermal energy found underground, or in a pond or well water. Geothermal heat pumps are able to maintain very high efficiencies on even the coldest winter nights or the hottest summer days.
Their mechanism of efficacy is a loop, using water that is first heated at the geothermal source, then routed to your home as energy. Hot water, ambient heat, even cooling can be provided in this fashion, and geothermal systems are incredibly efficient, drawing on one of the most consistent and stable energy sources there is.
