Efficiency from the earth. In summer, a GHP uses the refrigerant cycle and a ground loop system to move heat from indoors to the earth. In winter, the system reverses and heat can be moved from the earth to the home. Drawings supplied by PixyJackPress.com.

An air-source heat pump supplies heating and cooling, just like a geothermal heat pump. But air-source heat pumps become very inefficient when outdoor temperatures drop below freezing. A geothermal heat pump doesn’t have this problem because it relies on the steady (55-65 degrees F) temperature of the earth at depths below 6 ft. or so. Even when winter temperatures drop below zero, a geothermal heat pump has a steady heat source that ensures efficient operation. In the summer, when cooling is necessary, the earth can act as a heat sink, enabling the heat pump to efficiently cool and dehumidify your indoor air.
Some geothermal heat pumps are equipped with a secondary heat exchanger called a “desuperheater.” The additional heat exchanger enables the system to supply hot water for washing. This type of HVAC system is considered by many to be the “gold standard” for energy savings as well as for “green” value and reliability. Your savings are maximized by dramatically cutting water heating expenses in addition to providing economical heating and cooling.
