Geothermal Heating & Cooling: How Does It Work?

There's no doubting that Rochester residents experience a wide range of weather changes throughout the year. From blazing hot summers to frigid winters, it is important that our homes' systems are working efficiently to ensure our comfort and safety.

What many people do not realize is that the temperature below the ground stays consistent all year round. This is because the ground absorbs 47% of the suns heat as it hits the Earth's surface. A geothermal system is able to tap into this energy and provide a home or office with heating and cooling.

AP Plumbing is happy to offer geothermal system installations. WaterFurnace geothermal systems are some of the most efficient, energy saving, environmentally conscious heat pumps a homeowner can purchase. This natural heat pump provides years of reliable heat and safe home comfort at a low cost.

Are you interested in learning more? Find out how geothermal systems operate below:

Geothermal Heating: A geothermal heat pump uses the Earth loop to extract heat from the ground. During this process, the heat is distributed through conventional duct systems. This same heat can also be used for a radiant floor system or domestic hot water heating.

Geothermal Cooling: Instead of extracting heat from the ground, heat is extracted from the air in the home and moved back into the Earth or used to preheat water in the hot water tank. It is the heating process in reverse.
