“Low Grade” GeoThermal Energy …is the heat within the Earth’s crust. This heat is actually stored solar energy. We use this technology to operate heating and cooling systems.
Fundamentally, geothermal systems work differently than ordinary heating and cooling systems. Conventional systems have to produce heat by burning some type of fuel, typically propane, natural gas or fuel oil. Geothermal systems don’t create heat; instead they collect and distribute it. First, you should realize that the earth absorbs and stores nearly half of the sun’s solar energy. As a result, at a depth of six feet it maintains a fairly constant temperature of 45 to 70 degrees F. The geothermal system taps into that free, renewable energy and puts it to work. The earth’s natural heat is collected in the winter by a series of pipes called a loop system. Fluid circulating in the loop system carries this heat to the home, where it is compressed and released to raise the inside temperature. In the summer, this process is reversed in order to cool the home. Heat is drawn from the home, rejected to the loop and absorbed by the earth. The result is a comfortable home all year round. Since most of the energy used for heating and cooling is free from the earth, geothermal systems are the most efficient and environmentally friendly systems on the market today. GeoThermal Heat Pumps have been in use since the late 1940’s!
