What is Geothermal Heating and Cooling?
Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the earth’s natural temperature to heat your home instead of generating heat with electricity or gas. Soil or water underground retains heat, compared to above-ground air, which fluctuates. Geothermal heating uses underground loops to pull out the existing underground heat and conduct it to your property’s geothermal heat pump, while geothermal cooling removes the heat already inside. The heat pump utilizes ductwork as a means of distributing heat.
Types of Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems
- Horizontal closed loop - An extensive system of pipes filled with liquid and buried underground horizontally. This method takes up more yard space but is easier to install since it does not require as deep of a dig.
- Vertical closed loop - This system consists of extensive pipes filled with liquid and buried underground vertically. This method takes up less yard space but requires deep holes, usually dug by a good drill.
- Open loop - Instead of pulling heat from the ground, this system uses the natural warmth of underground water. Rather than liquid filling closed pipes, they are open to groundwater, allowing it to flow through the pipes and conduct heat.
- Pond/lake - This is a type of open loop system utilizing water from a pond or lake on your property instead of the underground water layer.
Geothermal Heat Pump Installation and Replacement
Aire Sev of Omaha provides heating and cooling system installation and replacements. Our experts can work with you to determine the best solution for getting the temperatures you desire in your home or business. Geothermal heat pump installation varies depending on the type and the space available on your property. Our technicians have experience with all geothermal heat pump types and understand how to scale a system to fit the size of your property.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems have three main components: the geothermal heat pump, the underground loop network, and the ductwork for distributing the air. We set up the entire system and can install ductwork if your home or business does not already have those structures. In addition, Aire Serv of Omaha provides replacement services for any part of your geothermal heating and cooling system.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling Repair and Maintenance
Like any heater or air conditioner, geothermal heating and cooling systems require regular preventative maintenance to keep them in working order. Our technicians will ensure your geothermal heat pump is working correctly and not showing signs of damage. They will also check your thermostat to ensure it is running efficiently and not indicating more significant problems with your geothermal heating and cooling.
If your geothermal heat pump is malfunctioning or your maintenance appointment reveals problems, Aire Serv of Omaha offers repair services. Luckily, the underground piping loops do not need repairs often, although they still need monitoring. Geothermal heat pumps and piping can have a variety of problems we will address, such as:
- Issues with valves
- Damaged fan blades
- A buildup of scale (a chalk-like deposit)
- A failing motor
Is Geothermal Heating and Cooling Right for Me?
Geothermal heat pumps are a favored solution to dual heating and cooling because they are long-lasting, highly efficient, and eco-friendly. Although they are a significant upfront investment, geothermal heat pumps save you money in the long run, especially with overall heating, cooling, and maintenance costs. Geothermal heat pumps are an excellent option for colder climates and can even heat your property’s water in place of a water heater.If you believe geothermal heating and cooling is the right choice for your home or business, an Aire Serv of Omaha professional can look at your property and help you understand if it will work for you.
