How Does Geothermal Heating & Cooling Work?

Geothermal heating and cooling works by harnessing the energy from the heat produced beneath the earth’s crust— meaning it works unlike any other HVAC system you’ve known before!

Electric ground-source heat pumps are connected to an underground loop to collect heat trapped in the earth and use it to both heat and cool homes and other buildings. During the cold Metro East Illinois winter, the heat pumps pull heat from the ground and direct it into the building. In the summer, the heat pumps take heat from the building to cool it down.

Benefits of Installing a GeoComfort Geothermal Heat Pump

Significant energy savings (20 to 50%!) isn’t the only benefit of installing a geothermal heating and cooling system in your Metro East Illinois home. Additional advantages include:

  • Safety – Geothermal systems don’t require open flames or flammable material, and all outdoor components are completely underground.
  • Convenience – One ground source heat pump can supply your heating, cooling, and water heating. The indoor units usually take up no more space than a traditional HVAC unit.
  • Low maintenance – A geothermal heat pump has fewer moving parts and is protected from the wear and tear of outdoor elements like rain, snow, ice, and extreme temperatures, so it requires minimal maintenance.
  • Performance – Geothermal heating and cooling will keep your home warmer in the winter. The heat pumps are extremely durable, and most manufacturers offer a warranty of up to 50 years for the system’s underground pipe.
  • Comfort – Not only will a geothermal HVAC system help eliminate “cold spots” in your home, but will do so while being quiet! Unlike other heating systems, a heat pump doesn’t have a noisy outdoor unit that will disrupt the peacefulness of your outdoor property. The indoor unit’s noise is comparable to a refrigerator.
  • Money savings – Although installing a geothermal heating and cooling system requires an initial investment, you will benefit from significantly lower operating and maintenance costs for the life of the system! Most of your investment can be recouped in as quickly as three years, and you may be eligible for a federal tax credit or a utility company rebate.
