Geothermal Heating & Cooling
in Columbia SC
How does it Work?
If you live in Columbia SC or surrounding Midlands, you are probably aware of just how much the temperature can vary from month to month. In some cases, day to day! There is a great source of temperature that you can count on from day to day though and it’s just a few feet under the earth's surface all around your property.
The ground, your land, stores 47% of the sun’s energy as heat. A geothermal system taps into this heating source utilizing a “loop system” which consumes this FREE heat source for your home. This will help you better understand how the system works.
In the heating cycle, a geothermal heat pump employs the earth loop system to draw the heat from the ground. Delivery through a classic duct system, the geothermal system draws heat from the loops and distributes it as warm air. Other choices are available to use that same heating energy to provide hot water heating and radiant floor heat.
The heating process is reversed in the cooling mode - creating cool, conditioned air all through the home. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, heat is taken from the air in your home and either moved back into the earth loop, or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank.
