Geothermal Heat Pump Basics
Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of the fact that the area below the surface of your Long Island property maintains a relatively constant temperature all winter long. As such, during the winter, this area is warmer than the air outside your home, and during the summer, this area is cooler than the air outside your home. By tapping into this constant temperature, a geothermal heat pump can improve the energy efficiency of your home by upwards of 600% for your heating and cooling needs.
Essentially, a geothermal heat pump uses the constant temperature below the surface of the Earth. This heat pump transfers or exchanges heat from the inside of your home and this ground area. During the winter, the heat is transferred from the ground into your home. During the summer, the heat is transferred from inside your home to under the ground.
As such, geothermal heat pumps have the ability to replace you traditional air conditioning and heating systems. In addition, some geothermal heat pumps can be equipped to supply your home with hot water as well. These highly efficient, long lasting systems provide countless benefits to your Long Island home.
Types of Geothermal Heat Pumps
Depending on the layout of your property and the area surrounding your property, different geothermal heat pump systems may be better for you and your family. Geothermal heat pumps can use both the temperature within the ground or within above or below ground water systems. Geothermal heat pumps also come in closed loop and open loop variations as well as horizontal or vertical set ups. In some instances, a hybrid geothermal heat pump may be optimal for you heating and cooling needs.
The heating and air conditioning contractors at Metro Heating & Air Conditioning can assess the layout of your property and your heating and cooling needs to provide you with expert advice as to which system will best fulfill your comfort needs.
