How a Geothermal HVAC System Works
The mechanics of a geothermal HVAC system aren’t overly complex. The unit takes advantage of the cooler ambient ground temperature in the summer and warmer temperature in the winter. Once this HVAC system reaches a contrasting temperature, it can easily maintain a comfortable indoor temperature for you and your family, regardless of the season.
If you’re interested in a geothermal HVAC system, you can expect installation in your yard or driveway. Since the geothermal HVAC system can be up to 600 feet deep underground, it reaches a level where the temperature stays approximately 55 degrees Fahrenheit all year.
The key components of this HVAC system are the underground pipes and the liquid contained in them. This liquid eventually circulates to the geothermal heat pump, allowing the unit to control the interior temperature.
