How do geothermal heating and cooling systems work?

Geothermal heating and cooling systems are the most energy-efficient way to control temperatures inside northeast Florida homes and businesses. These systems take advantage of untapped natural resources for heat transfer, and while geothermal heating and cooling systems aren’t a new technology, many people have likely never heard of it or aren’t quite sure how it works.

Geothermal systems consist of three main parts: a ground loop, a heat pump, and a distribution system.

The Ground Loop

The ground loop is a piping system that is buried on the property. It is either a closed loop or an open loop that opens into a nearby water source, such as a pond or well. Liquid flows through the system of underground pipes and releases heat underground in the summer to cool the home; in the winter, it captures heat to warm your house. 

The Geothermal Heat Pump

A geothermal heat pump exchanges heat between the air and the ground loop system. Depending on whether it’s heating or cooling at the time, the geothermal heat pump will extract heat from the air or the ground loop. 

The Distribution System

This is the method that delivers heated or cooled air throughout your home. Forced-air geothermal HVAC systems use ductwork to deliver conditioned air inside, just like a typical furnace or air conditioning system. Some geothermal heating and cooling systems may be configured with hydronic distribution, a network of fluid-filled piping that runs throughout the home to carry heat. The heat pump’s heat exchanger exchanges heat between the fluid in the pipes and the fluid within the ground loop.
