Ground source heat pumps, also known as geothermal heat pumps are a way of heating that is taking the nation by storm these days! They can also be used as cooling/air conditioning systems with an upgrade adjustment.
What a geothermal heat pump does is uses the earth.
This is great for energy savings and also, it is just better for the air quality and world in general. The heat from the ground is taken into a pipe, then passes through an air compressor to make it a warmer temperature. This is modern HVAC technology at its finest. I selected the use of a geothermal heat pump myself once my friend, who happened to be a certified heating and air conditioning specialist suggested it to me. When he told me about the geothermal heat pump, I was at first a bit confused on how it worked. That was when I did my research on the internet at many different websites to figure it out for myself. The installation of the geothermal heat pump was pretty expensive too. But, I was fortunate enough to have found a discount on one of those websites I was reading at the time. The heating and air conditioning company was offering 30 percent off the installation as well as the set up of any geothermal heat pumps for the next six months. The discount code was only able to have been got from the website I was on. And well, the rest is history. I love and believe in my geothermal heat pump.
