How Does Geothermal Heating & Cooling Work?

Geothermal energy is heat sourced directly from the earth. 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. In the 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.

Ground source heat pumps are extremely versatile as they can be installed horizontally, vertically, or even in a lake or pond.
