Ground Source Heat Pumps
The Earth absorbs approximately 45% of the Sun’s energy. This is 500 times more energy than we need every year. The energy well uses solar energy stored in the Earth. Energy in the ground is transferred through a fluid inside a durable plastic pipe. The fluid inside the pipe transfers energy to the heat pump inside the mechanical room. The heat pump extracts the heat and forced air ducting or radiant in floor tubing distributes it evenly throughout the home. When in cooling mode the process is reversed. The heat pump extracts the heat from the dwelling and deposits it back into the Earth.
Excess energy is captured by the heat pump and used to supplement your domestic hot water needs.
Terra Geothermal has been installing Climate Master heat pumps for 15 years. The new units are intelligent with V-flow technology and i-gate communications these ground source heat pumps are alwasy running in the most efficient mode
possible. Built in variable speed ground loop pumps maximizes efficiency by providing the ideal gallons per minute to the heat exchanger. The variable speed ECM fan motor and two stage compressor provide you with the efficiency you would expect from a geothermal system. These units transfer heat between your home and the ground as you need it or as you don't.
WaterFurnace is one of the most recognized and respected names in geothermal. Headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana, WaterFurnace has been synonymous with geothermal and water source heat pump technology since 1983. Our systems have been installed across all 50 states and in countries around the world. Over the years we've worked to innovate new technologies, integrate key trends and grow our core business to represent clean and sustainable solutions. Our units combine sound engineering with the highest levels of quality control to provide our customers with some of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the planet.
Geothermal heating and cooling or GeoExchange uses a ground source heat pump. This technology cannot be beat for efficiency and flexibility. Our premium brands of Ground source heat pumps, Climate Master and Waterfurnace create conditioned (hot or cold) water and/or air. One ground source heat pump can provide you with radiant heating (warm floors), radiant cooling (hydronic fan coils), or radiant heating and central cooling and heating with air or any combination that will suit your comfort and budget.
