Geothermal Heating Process

In the process of warming your home with geothermal heating, the sustained temperature of the ground is used. At a certain distance below the earth's surface, the ground stays at a rather steady temperature, even during winter. This number is known as 55 degrees Fahrenheit and it remains that way year-round. A geothermal unit draws this temperature up to your home to keep it warm.

Geothermal heating units have been in use since the late 1940s, and are considered energy-efficient HVAC systems. If you want a geothermal heating system, call Choice Comfort at 937-898-4328 to see if your home qualifies.

How Geothermal Heating Works

A geothermal system consists of two parts:

  • A heat pump: installed inside your home in place of your traditional heating system.
  • A buried pipe system: installed in the nearby ground that circulates fluid and transfers heat to your home. 

The pipe system is usually made into loops so that it receives maximum surface contact. A fluid circulates inside it that absorbs heat from the ground. The heat pump delivers this heat to your home above, providing sufficient warmth for you & your family. This is how geothermal heating works to keep your indoor temperature comfortable while cutting down the costs of heating fuels.

Geothermal Heating Simplified

You've probably witnessed this occurrence without even realizing it. Because of the constant 55 degrees provided by the earth, even an unheated basement stays comfortably warm during the winter.

A simplified way of looking at geothermal heating:

  • Pipes are placed underground
  • Fluids circulate the pipes in loops
  • The heat from the earth is absorbed into the pipes
  • A heat pump transfers this heat to your home
