Okanagan Geothermal Suppliers
A highlighted product offering from Terra Geothermal is ground source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps are also commonly referred to as geothermal heat pumps. A ground source heat pump is used for heating and cooling as well as water heating. The technology is reliant on the constant stable temperature of the ground throughout the four seasons. During the winter, the ground is warmer than the air and during the summer, the ground is cooler than the air. The pump takes the heat stored in the ground during the winter and transfers heat back into the ground during the summer. The end goal is regulated temperatures year-round.
A water to air ground source heat pump creates hot water as a by-product. The way it works is heat transferred out of the ground is used to heat up water for your home’s hot water system. Before any water even enters the home, it is preheated by the system to temperatures in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The water is then stored in the hot water heater until use. Using a water to air ground source heat pump has an improved efficiency of approximately 400 percent more than traditional systems.
Another system option is water to water ground source heating pumps. The main goal of this type of ground source heat pump is to generate hot water. The pump creates hot water by gaining the heat directly from the ground. This type of hot water is ideal for radiant heating systems that run hot water through the floors. This type of system is more geared to residences and businesses with primary heating goals rather than those interested in cooling systems.
