Low energy costs and efficiency go hand in hand. Heating a home with geothermal energy can save energy by using natural, renewable energy stored in the ground. As the sun heats the Earth, much of this heat energy remains just under the surface at about 60 degrees year-round.
Two types of geothermal systems can be used to power a home—open loop and closed loop systems. Closed loop systems are the most common in suburban areas and are versatile in their placement possibilities. During the wintertime, the heat stored in the Earth’s crust is compressed, augmented, and circulated throughout the home. In the summer, heat is removed from the house and pumped into the ground.
