How Geothermal Works

We all know that Hart homes are subjected to varying temperatures during the year. Some climates can see the extremities that summer and winter hit us with. There is a consistent source of temperature that you can utilize; just a few feet under the earth's surface. How is that possible?

The sun infuses the Earth's crust with its heat energy. Forty-seven percent of that energy is stored in the ground as heat. WaterFurnace geothermal systems draw from this heating potential using an earth loop system; gathering this free heat for your home. This innovative technology uses the sun's heat that the earth has conveniently deposited to condition your home or office.

Geothermal Heating

Utilizing the earth loop, a WaterFurnace geothermal heat pump takes the heat from the ground in the heating cycle. The geothermal system sucks the heat from the loops and delivers this warmed air through a traditional duct system. Additional choices include using that same heat to provide hot water and radiant floor heating are available.

Geothermal Cooling

During the cooling mode, cool, refreshing air is circulated throughout the house by doing the exact opposite as the heating process. Heat is not extracted, instead it is driven into the ground. The warm heat is extracted from your home and taken back into the earth loop. Your hot water heating can be fueled by this procedure as well.
