Are you overwhelmed by the costs of heating in Bellevue, Seattle, Everett, Lynnwood Washington? One exceptionally efficient means of heating and cooling is with a Geothermal Heat Pump System. Not nearly as complicated as the name suggests!
By tapping into the constant temperature in the ground, a Geothermal Heat Pump extracts the warmth through a system of pipes an carries that heat to the heat pump, where the warmth is extracted and distributed through your home. By capitalizing on existing heat stores below the frost line – generally around 10′ deep – your home heating bills will be drastically reduced.
Considering a simple reversal of the process provides air cooling (heat sink) in warmer months, the Geothermal Heat Pump conditions the air in your home year round. In summer months, the heat pump extracts heat from the air in your home and distributes it through the in-ground pipes back into the earth.
Should you not have a large tract of land, or if you are considering conversion from a fossil fuel system, there are means to run the pipes vertically rather than horizontally. Either way, the theories remain in tact. Most modern geothermal units employ a closed loop system that carries a water + glycol solution to enhance heat transfer capabilities.
As the geothermal heat tables show that the available ground heat in Bellevue, Seattle, Everett, Lynwood Washington area are naturally quite high, you can rest assured that this is a realistic option in your area.
