Geothermal Power

Geo Exchange System Types

Open Loop
Draws energy from a readily available water source ( ie: well, lake, etc.). The water is pumped from a water source to geothermal heat pump, where the energy is absorbed and cooler water is then pumped back to a suitable discharge location.

Horizontal Closed Loop
Series of piping installed at a depth of 4-6ft below the ground. Pipes are filled with an ethanol solution and energy is then transferred from the ground to the fluid, then back into your home. Approximately, ¼ of an acre cleared land is required.

Vertical Closed Loop
Series of bore holes are drilled vertically into the earth’s surface, to a depth of approximately 200 ft below the ground. Piping is then inserted into the bore holes, with the same ethanol solution and energy is transferred from the ground to the fluid, then back into your home. Vertical systems are ideal for urban applications, where lot sizes and available ground is limited.

Geo Exchange Distribution Types

Forced Air
Energy absorbed from the Geo Exchange process is transferred to the air system within the home, then distributed through the existing duct work within the home.

Radiant Heating
Energy absorbed from the Geo Exchange process is transferred to a stored water source. This heated water is then distributed throughout the existing radiant system (ie: radiators, in-floor tubing, fan coil)

Combination
Energy absorbed from the Geo Exchange process can be used for multiple applications including forced air and radiant, from one single piece of equipment.
