How a Geothermal HVAC System Works
A geothermal system works like a standard heat pump, moving heat from one area to another using refrigerant and a compressor. Instead of air, geothermal heating systems use a ground loop as a heat source or heat sink.
In the winter, heat is extracted from the ground loop through a heat exchanger, warming the refrigerant in the heat pump and heating the indoor air. In the summer heat is extracted from the indoor air by the geothermal heat pump system and transferred through the heat exchanger to the ground loop.
Most geothermal heating and cooling systems use a closed ground loop, which is a series of pipes that circulate a special heat-transfer fluid. The most common ground loops include:
- Horizontal Ground Loop:Pipes are laid out at a shallow depth in a horizontal excavation. This configuration requires more space, but is economical.
- Vertical Ground Loop:Pipes installed in vertically-bored holes. This solution takes less surface area, but is costly.
- Pond/Lake Loop:Pipes are laid at the bottom of a pond or lake. This system is inexpensive, but requires access to nearby water.
For a geothermal heating and cooling system, the ground loop is typically the most expensive part of installing the system, but it lasts for decades.
