Geothermal heat pumps are an energy efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional HVAC systems. For those in Newnan, Georgia, and the surrounding area, geothermal technology can help you save a lot of money on your heating and cooling bills. While geothermal equipment promotes renewable energy and fossil fuel preservation, these complex systems should only be installed by an experienced service technician.
Geothermal provides the Best Energy Efficiency
Conventional forced-air heat pumps move heat from one area to another depending on the season. Severe outdoor temperatures negatively impact the efficiency of these units. In contrast, geothermal systems use the earth itself as the heat transfer medium. While the ambient air temperature can change by as much as 60 degrees, the ground temperature hardly changes at all.
Ground source heat pumps are available in either closed-loop or open-loop configurations. Open-loop systems need a permanent source of water, but closed-loop systems use an antifreeze solution in a sealed piping network. Closed-loop systems have become quite popular because they’re easier to install and service.
