Geothermal Heating & Cooling Systems
Here in Colorado, the shallow ground or upper 10 feet of the Earth's surface maintains a nearly constant temperature between 50° F and 60°F (10°C /16°C). Geothermal heat pumps can tap into this resource to heat and cool buildings.
A geothermal heat pump system consists of a heat pump, an air delivery system, and a heat exchanger (a system of pipes buried in the shallow ground near the building.)
Geothermal Energy Uses
In the winter, the heat pump removes heat from the heat exchanger and pumps it into the indoor air delivery system. In the summer, the process is reversed, and the heat pump moves heat from the indoor air into the heat exchanger, which can then be used to provide a free source of hot water.
Geothermal can also be used in other forms of heating and cooling such as a snow melt system.
