How Do Geothermal Heat Pumps Work?

Environmentally-friendly geothermal heat pump systems use heat from deep inside the earth, which provides a renewable and practically endless supply of geothermal energy.

There are different configurations, but geothermal systems typically include a large, fluid-filled loop or underground pipe system.

Geothermal cooling works during the summer by taking the heat from your home and transferring it into the cooler earth through the loop system.  The earth remains a consistent temperature (about 50-55 degrees in the greater Battle Creek area) year-round just a few feet below the ground.  To heat your home during the winter, the flow is reversed and the same geothermal system absorbs heat from the ground, compresses it to a warmer temperature, and uses it to heat your home.  See some examples below:
