Title: A Geothermal Heat Pump - an ideal choice for a warm home this winter

A Geothermal Heat Pump - an ideal choice for a
warm home this winter
2
  • No one likes cold floors and especially at winter
    time. The time you should start considering floor
    heating options shouldn't be in the dead of
    winter when everything is heavy with cold.

3
  • Some type of heating solution should be found
    from as far back as a summer allowing for
    enough time for the selection and installation of
    the chosen heating option. One of the more
    affordable options is a geothermal heat pump.

  • This type of heating system doesn't only heat
    your floors and keep them nice and toasty during
    winter or any other cold period, it also keeps
    the rest of your house nice and toasty warm for
    you and your family during winter.

6
  • This type of heating system derives its power
    from below the earth's surface thus making it an
    affordable option for heating your home. This
    heating system was first developed back in the
    1850's with the first commercial model being
    built and installed in the state of Oregon in the
    1940's.

7
  • Since then, geothermal heating had steadily been
    gaining in popularity with more than 80,000
    geothermal heating units being installed every
    year.

8
  • Geothermal heating systems came in two forms
    open loop which dominated the market in the
    second form (a closed loop system) became a more
    economically viable option. The closed loop
    system allowed for greater commercialization of
    this type of heating system which is how it came
    to be as we know it today.

  • A geothermal heat pump has three primary parts
    a closed ground loop, a heat pump and an air
    delivery system. The closed ground loop is buried
    in the grounds near the house or building, some
    type of fluid (in most cases water in others some
    type of liquid coolant) is circulated through the
    pipes where depending on the season it either
    brings in the heat (during winter) or
    relinquishes heat (other seasons.

11
  • In the case of the air delivery system, this uses
    a series of ducts and or pipe systems to
    circulate the heated or cooled air throughout the
    building. The more traditional (and economic)
    closed loop system can come in two different
    positions horizontal and vertical.

12
  • The vertical positioning also referred to as a
    well is used primarily in commercial settings
    as they take up a lot less room than their
    horizontal counterparts.

  • The horizontal closed loop system is used mainly
    in residential settings. In recent times, there
    has been an increase in the number of new
    constructions that choose this as their heating
    option.

15
  • The horizontal closed loop system while it does
    require more space, because of its configuration
    it ends up saving the homeowner more. The
    geothermal heating system allows for greater
    flexibility in terms of the general design thus
    making it a more viable heating option for
    homeowners looking to put in a cost effective
    heating option in their homes.

16
  • When it comes down to a choice to be made for
    heating your home, do the research and give
    careful consideration to all of your available
    options. Ensure that whatever decision is made,
    its the best and most affordable one for you.
