As the interest and installation of geothermalsystems continues to increase, so do the questions of those considering ageothermal installation. Questions regarding the frequency of geothermalrepair is a common source of concern. Geothermal systems are manufacturedto high standards, to be not only energy efficient, but very durable. Theiroperation differs in many ways than a typical heat pump, and the operationresults in far less wear on the system. Consequently, a geothermal heat pumpsystem requires less repair than a standard heat pump and other types of HVACsystems.

Geothermal Heat Pumps – How they Work
The closed loop geothermal heat pump system usesa ground loop system four to six feet beneath the ground, where the temperatureis a fairly consistent temperature. During the cooling season, the geothermaluses the cooler underground temperature as a heat sink, while during the winter,the loops absorb heat from the warmer underground temperature.
Types include closed or open loops. In addition,they can be installed horizontally, vertically or in water, such as a pond, forexample. However, installation in a water source depends on whether the opendischarge is allowed into the body of water. The type and form of installationtypically depend on the available land or water source.
None of the geothermal system componentsare exposed to the outdoors, providing protection against corrosion. By usingthe stable underground temperature, the geothermal heat pump doesn’t work ashard as traditional heat pumps that work against outdoor temperature extremesand conditions. In fact, ground loops have a lifespan of up to 50 years, whilethe heat pumps have an average lifespan of 25 years.

Geothermal systems provide the highest efficiencyheating and air conditioning systems available. The benefits are significant:
l Provides not only heating and cooling, geothermalsystem can also assist you in reducing the cost of producing hot water by asmuch as 50%.
l Energy savings in the air conditioningmode can be up to 50%, cutting your costs in half from day one. While themajority of heating systems are limited in the energy they save, the geothermalleaps beyond the competition for up to 70% savings on the cost of heating.
l A geothermal system is an investment, and onlyrequires a few years to pay for itself. The exact amount of time depends onseveral factors, such as your environment, for example.
