When you’re in the market for a new cooling system, you’ll probably hear that geothermal is one of your options. These systems are increasing in popularity because of their long lifespans and energy efficiency. Geothermal systems are also environmentally friendly. They don’t involve flames, flues, loud noises or odors.
What Is Geothermal Cooling?
Geothermal cooling is a method of cooling your home by utilizing the Earth’s consistent temperature. The Earth acts like a heat sink when the system needs to cool your home. A geothermal system is capable of heating your home and providing hot water as well, so you’re getting a three-in-one system. It’s designed to last for 50 years before needing to be replaced.
The system works by transferring heat to or from the Earth based on whether it’s cooling or heating your home. The Earth maintains a temperature of 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. There are two types of systems: open-looped and closed-looped.
Factors that determine the system’s design are:
- Accessibility to groundwater
- Land availability
- Soil conditions
- Accessibility to surface water bodies
