Geothermal HVAC systems are similar to conventional heat pumps. They both have an indoor heating and air conditioning unit. But geothermal heat pumps connect to an underground or underwater system of pipes called a loop. These pipes fill with refrigerant or water, and they transfer heat into your home in winter and out of it in summer. Unlike the outdoor unit for a conventional system, a geothermal system won’t take up space in your yard. A geothermal HVAC system provides numerous other benefits for your home in Safety Harbor, Florida.
The temperatures underground or underwater don’t fluctuate as much as air temperatures. That’s why geothermal heat pumps are more efficient than conventional heat pumps. Installing a geothermal heat pump in your home will help you lower your utility bills. It also helps the environment by reducing pollution.
Easy Water Heating
With a geothermal system that has water, you won’t have to worry about paying for a separate water heater. Your home will also have more storage space. Since the water in the underground or underwater pipes transfers heat to or from your home, it stays warm in summer and winter. As long as the water is safe to drink, you can have the pipes for it connected to your plumbing for hot water usage.
Pipes full of hot water can also provide radiant heating. They heat your home’s floors, making your house more comfortable and keeping you from stepping on a cold floor when you wake up or get out of the shower. You can even use radiant heating to warm up your pool.
