A geothermal heat pump installed from South Nashville Heating and Cooling can save you an enormous amount of money in energy costs while helping the environment.
How does geothermal heat pump work? A geothermal heat pump transfers heat from the ground to your house (or vice versa). It does this through long loops of underground pipes filled with either water or an antifreeze solution. The loops are hooked up to a geothermal heat pump in your home, which acts as both a furnace and an air conditioner.
During the heating season, the liquid pulls heat from the ground and delivers it to the geothermal unit and then to refrigerant coils, where the heat is distributed through a forced-air or hydronic system. During the cooling season, the pump removes heat from your house and transfers it to the earth.
Geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature.
South Nashville Heating and Coolingcan install a geothermal heat pump that is much more efficient than conventional heating systems.
How, you ask? Basically, it doesn’t burn fuel to create warmth; instead it moves existing heat from one place to another. Since temperatures underground remain relatively constant year round, the geothermal system requires quite a bit less energy to cool your home than your conventional systems.
