How It Works
Vertical Loop are the most commonly used in the industry.
Improve Reliability with Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Because these systems have fewer mechanical components, they are also more reliable, easier to
service, and less prone to failure. It is not uncommon to find geothermal systems 25 years or older.
No flame, no flue, no odors, no risk from carbon monoxide.
Simply safe and reliable operation.
Geothermal systems use the relatively stable temperature of the earth as an energy source,
therefore You are assured of constant, even heating in winter, and better humidity control in the
summer. Through a single system, both your heating and air conditioning comfort is taken care of.
This eliminate the need for exhaust venting, reducing the number of penetrations in the building
envelope and thereby improve weather tightness.

In the heating mode, heat is absorbed from the ground and pumped into your home.
The water circulating in the earth loop is colder than the surrounding ground.
This causes the water to absorb energy, in the form of heat, from the earth. The water
carries this energy to the heat exchanger in the pump. In the heat exchanger,
refrigerant absorbs the heat energy from the water. The water now leaves the heat
exchanger at a colder temperature, and circulates through the earth loop to pick up
The refrigerant gas, which contains energy gained from the earth loop, travels from
the heat exchanger to the compressor. In the compressor, the refrigerant
temperature rises to 160°. The superheated refrigerant travels to the air heat
exchanger. Here, the heat pump's blower circulates air across the air coil, increasing
the temperature of the air, which is blown through ductwork to heat the home. After
refrigerant releases its heat energy to the air, it then flows to the earth loop heat
exchanger to start the cycle again.
In the cooling mode, heat is pumped out of your home and released into the ground.
The water circulating in the earth loop is warmer than the surrounding ground. This
causes the water to release energy, in the form of heat, into the earth. In the heat
exchanger, hot refrigerant gas from the compressor releases its heat into the water.
This causes the water to increase in temperature, and release the heat to the ground.
The refrigerant, which has released its heat energy and became a cold liquid; now
travels to the heat exchanger. Here the heat pump's blower circulates warm, humid
air across the cold air coil. The air is then blown through ductwork to cool the home.
The refrigerant in the air coil picks up the heat energy from the air, and travels to the
compressor. When the refrigerant leaves the compressor, it then flows to the earth
loop heat exchanger to start the cycle again. The system has no carbon dioxide
emissions or any other negative effects on the environment.
