Geothermal Heat Pumps
A geothermal heat pump effectively uses the ground as a heat source in cool weather and a heat sink in warmer weather. During cool weather, the geothermal heat pump draws warmth from under the ground and pushes it into the structure’s heating system. This is an incredibly efficient way to heat structures in moderate climates, and the system works in reverse during warm weather. The geothermal exchange system draws warm air out of the structure and pushes it into the ground, effectively creating an outdoor heat sink. Although geothermal pumps can be relatively expensive to install, they provide a fantastic coefficient of performance compared to other heating systems, resulting in lower utility bills over time.
Geothermal heating systems are not only environmentally responsible; they are also financially advantageous in terms of long-term cost of ownership. Geothermal heating devices use less electricity than many other heating systems. Every homeowner knows that a heating installation or replacement is a major investment, and United is here to help.
