WHAT IS GEOTHERMAL?

The typical geothermal system, sometimes called a ground-source heat pump, works on a simple premise: the earth below the "frost line" is a constant temperature of about 50 degrees year round. Heat can be taken from the ground and transferred through a heat pump to the air in your home during the winter.  In the summer, when cooling your house the system simply works in reverse. Typically the loop is buried in the ground, either vertically or horizontally and are connected to a circulating pump inside your home. The pump circulates a mixture of water and biodegradable antifreeze (which is approved by the EPA) through the buried pipes, and the liquid mixture absorbs heat from the ground as it flows through the pipes.
