A geothermal heating and cooling system is a type of home heating and cooling system that relies on the steady temperature of the ground to provide warmth in the winter and cool in the summer. Geothermal HVAC systems are quickly becoming the green alternative to traditional air conditioning. Geothermal heating and cooling systems can be installed in new or existing homes, and they use the earth’s constant temperature to reduce heating and cooling costs.

Geothermal systems work by circulating a mixture of water and antifreeze between an underground geothermal heat pump and the home’s HVAC system. This mixture is pumped through an underground loop and back to the heat pump. It is similar to the way a refrigerator works, but instead of cooling inside with liquid, we're using the earth under our feet. The heat from inside the home is absorbed and moved away.
With the help of deeply dug piping, the refrigerant liquid is transferred to and from under the frost line. Below the frost line, the temperature stays constant regardless of the outside weather. It feels warmer relative to the winter season room temperature, and colder relative to summer temperature. So, by extracting the underground temperature, we can stay warm in cold, and the reverse process lets us stay cool in summer. The two phases make up a loop system.
The benefits of geothermal HVAC systems are plenty. Although the technology is quite old, these systems are gaining huge traction for people in search of clean energy and reliability. Here are some of the examples of why you should get one too.
