Residential Home Geothermal Systems



A home geothermal system works much more efficiently then ordinary heating and air conditioning units by using the earth’s energy to heat and cool your home. Geothermal systems emits no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other harmful greenhouse gases.

These are very different from conventional air conditioners and heat pumps, as geothermal units are installed indoors, so they are not subject to wear and tear caused by the elements. Water Furnace geothermal units are generally very reliable and require significantly less maintenance than conventional heat pumps.

Residential geothermal projects are typically completed with one drilling rig and crew. Installers work with your heating contractor to select the proper method and location of drilling to complete your geothermal system. Most bore holes are 6-inch diameter and are approximately 300 feet total depth.

Geothermal System seems like a cleaner and greener alternative since it emits no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or greenhouse gases which are the main contributors to the global warming issues.

I'm glad the Sabah government will be setting up the first geothermal power plant in the country for Sabahans. This is indeed a better alternative for resolving the power woes.

Geothermal systems should be emphasized more in this country.

A geothermal heat pump, ground source heat pump (GSHP), or ground heat pump[ is a central heating and/or cooling system that pumps heat to or from the ground.

allows already efficient electric heat pumps to operate for even less, reducing the cost of heating your home by more than half when compared with a propane furnace. And geothermal systems provide cooling at up to a third less than conventional central air conditioning systems.

Hi there! You have such a very informative post. It was very well said. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge about geothermal with us. Anyway, in addition to what you have written, heat pumps provide winter heating by extracting heat from a source and transferring it into a building. Heat can be extracted from any source, no matter how cold, but a warmer source allows higher efficiency. A ground source heat pump uses the top layer of the earth's crust as a source of heat, thus taking advantage of its seasonally moderated temperature.
