Geothermal energy is a renewable and environmentally friendly energy source that generates electricity from the heat of the earth. Heat pumps are used to extract heat from the ground and transfer it into buildings for heating and cooling.
HeatCool is proud to offer our customers the most advanced and energy-efficient technology in heating and cooling: geothermal systems. These systems heat and cool your property using the temperature of the earth, providing a sustainable and cost-effective solution for your HVAC needs.
Geothermal systems are suitable for both residential and commercial properties, and they are especially well-suited for areas with consistent ground temperatures, such as areas near hot springs or geysers.
There are two types of classifications for geothermal heat pumps: open loop and closed loop systems.
Water is drawn from a well or a nearby water source, such as a lake or river, and used as the heat exchange fluid in open loop systems. After it has been used, the water is returned to its original source. This system is typically less expensive to install, but it is less efficient than a closed loop system. Furthermore, it is also susceptible to changes in water temperature or availability.
On the other hand, closed loop systems transfer heat using a closed loop of underground tubing. A fluid, such as water and antifreeze, is injected into the tubing and circulated through the loop. The solution absorbs heat from the earth in the winter and releases it in the summer. Closed loop systems are more efficient and dependable than open loop systems, and they are more cost effective in the long run.
Both types of systems can be used for residential, commercial, and industrial properties, and can be used for heating, cooling, and the production of hot water.

HeatCool is always available to provide service and support for your geothermal system. Whether you need regular maintenance, repairs, or just have a question, we’re here to help.
A geothermal heat pump (GHP) is a type of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system that uses the constant temperature of the earth as a heat source rather than relying on outdoor air temperatures. It works by circulating a fluid through a closed loop of underground piping, where the fluid absorbs heat from the earth in the summer and releases heat back into the earth in the winter. This heat is then used to heat or cool the building via a heat exchanger.
When compared to traditional HVAC systems, GHPs are highly efficient and can save homeowners up to 70% on heating and cooling costs. They also last longer and require less maintenance. Furthermore, GHPs emit no greenhouse gases, making them a more environmentally friendly option.
The cost of installing a geothermal heat pump varies depending on factors such as property size, system type, and location. Many states and municipalities, however, provide financial incentives, such as tax credits and rebates, to offset the cost of installation.
For property owners looking for an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC system, a geothermal heat pump may be a good option. However, before making a decision, it is important to consider factors such as the size of the property, its location, and the availability of financial incentives. Consult a professional to determine whether a geothermal heat pump is a good fit for your property.
