A geothermal system is a warming and cooling system for your air that compliments your HVAC system. Using the earth’s temperature, a geothermal heating system is a clean and efficient way to change the temperature in your home. If you are looking for a way to make your home’s air systems cleaner and more efficient, B&L Ott can help by installing a new geothermal system for you.
When you order a geothermal system a loop of pipes will be installed just under the earth’s surface on your property (about 10 feet down). At this level, the earth maintains a constant temperature between 50 and 60 degrees. The pipes are filled with water and continuously circulated through the loop of pipes and into a heat pump in your home. The water gives the air a base temperature and then your heat pump and HVAC system will heat or cool the air the rest of the way.
This system works in both summer and winter as the ground stays at a constant temperature. In the summer, the pipe’s level is cooler than the surface and in the winter it is warmer. The geothermal system uses little power to get mid-range temperature air into your home and saves work for your HVAC system.
