What is Geothermal Energy?

Geothermal energy, in the case of home use, pulls on the natural temperature of the ground to heat or cool your home. Beneath the surface, the ground stays the same temperature year-round – 55 degrees – which means it is cooler than the outside air in the summer and warmer during the winter. This allows for a transfer of energy using a ground loop, rather than the creation of energy using sources like gas or electricity. This is why geothermal energy is ultimately renewable.

What are Geothermal Heat Pumps?

A geothermal heat pump is the technology by which geothermal energy is harnessed and transferred into your home, effectively cooling or heating the air. Heat pumps come in multiple varieties using other fuel sources, but all of them are essentially heat transfer systems. They use either the heat in the air or the heat in the ground, in the case of geothermal, to alter the indoor temperature.

Parts of a Geothermal System

The geothermal system consists of two components:

Geothermal Heating vs. Geothermal Cooling

Geothermal heating is the process used in the winter to keep your home warm. A geothermal heat pump in Panama City will extract heat from water passing through the ground loop. This heat comes from the ground’s temperature, which will remain higher than the temperature of the air in the winter months. The heat pump will then distribute the warm air throughout your home. You can similarly use geothermal energy for water heaters, radiant heating, and other similar applications.

Geothermal cooling is the real star in Florida, though. The process works in reverse here, as the excess heat in your home warms the water and is transferred down into the ground loop. You can stay cool all summer long with geothermal cooling.

The Benefits of a Geothermal System

A geothermal heat pump in Panama City is not the simplest installation. It is an investment in your home and your future capacity for energy efficiency. But, it does provide a long-lasting system with countless benefits, including:
