How Does Geothermal Energy Work?
According to the EPA, geothermal energy is the greenest heating and cooling option. This technology has been around since the 1940s, but it has gained attention recently due to environmental concerns and the high cost of electricity. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) use the earth to regulate indoor temperatures by absorbing heat in the winter and releasing heat in the summer. Geothermal systems can be used to heat swimming pools, to generate hot water and to heat and cool homes using minimal amounts of energy.
In Florida, open loop systems that use water source heat pumps are one of the most popular options because we have a high water table and many natural water sources. These systems use groundwater from a well, aquifer, pond or lake as the heat source in the winter and the heat sink in the summer. Water passes through the heat pump and is then returned to the ground, so no water is lost or wasted. Heated or chilled air is then blown through existing ductwork.
Geothermal Products by Carrier
Carrier’s water-to-water GHPs are ideal for heating and cooling. Plus, they can provide hot water. In the summer, heat that would be expelled from your house generates hot water for free. In the winter, this secondary heat exchanger can cut hot water costs in half. Whether you’re considering geothermal heating and air conditioning in a new construction, for a commercial property or to replace an old, outdated air conditioner, GHPs are an excellent investment for the following reasons:
- They reduce monthly power bills by 70 percent
- Systems last for 20 years or longer
- Carrier units use ozone-friendly Puron® refrigerant
- Eco-friendly geothermal equipment reduces carbon emissions
- Federal tax credits are available for qualifying systems
- Local utility rebates are also available on Energy Star-rated systems
- Geothermal equipment is quiet, reliable and long-lasting
- Geothermal heat pumps can also provide hot water
- GHPs provide consistent airflow and superior humidity control
