How Geothermal Systems Work

A geothermal system uses a heat pump and a loop system, which is either buried in the ground or submerged in a water source on your property, to heat and cool your home. The loop systems use a refrigerant solution or, in certain cases, water itself to absorb existing heat from the ground or water surrounding your property. This heat is then sent to the heat pump for use in your home. Like air–source heat pumps, geothermal systems can also be reversed, removing heat from your home and depositing it back into the ground or water.

Types of Geothermal Loop Systems for Installation in Bellevue, WA

There are a few different loop system options to consider when choosing a geothermal system for installation on your property. Closed loop systems circulate a refrigerant solution throughout the loop and can be installed horizontally or vertically. Vertical installations save space but can be more expensive depending on how much geothermal drilling they require. A pond/lake closed loop system is submerged beneath water rather than buried in the ground, and if you have an adequate water source it is usually the cheapest geothermal installation option. Certain criteria must be met for a pond/lake loop system installation.

Another option is an open loop system, which also necessitates an appropriate body of water. In this type of system water itself is used in place of a refrigerant solution, and after it circulates throughout the system it is returned back to the source. There are many factors that must be taken into account when deciding which, if any, geothermal system is appropriate for your home, so it is important that you speak with a geothermal expert throughout the decision–making process.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling Benefits

Heating and air conditioning your home with a geothermal system is very efficient. It is also more dependable than doing so with air source heat pumps. Geothermal systems can be used more effectively in more diverse climates because temperatures beneath the ground or underwater are more constant than those in the air.
