Welcome to Ingram’s Water and Air Equipment! We will introduce you to geothermal systems and technology, with which you could enjoy the natural warmness of the earth for your home heating and cooling purposes, and do so very economically. Geothermal heat pumps are environmentally friendly, using the earth’s even temperature and renewable energy as the source for controlling heating and air conditioning. Unlike a conventional system, geothermal pump systems mainly utilize the earth’s warmth for heating and cooling your home. One of the prime benefits associated with its usage is that it helps to lower energy consumption and reduce costs by up to 50%. An added benefit to a geothermal system is that there is no need for separate equipment in order to cool your home. Prolonged operating intervals, gradual and even distribution of heat, zero greenhouse gas emissions, and improved interior comfort are the other significant benefits of using geothermal systems. Let us see how a geothermal system works! The system extracts heat from the ground during winter and puts it back into the ground during summer. For the functioning of all types of geothermal systems, three major components are necessary: ground loop, a heat pump furnace unit, and a distribution system. The ground loop system involves a chain of high density polyethylene pipes, all of which are buried in the home’s yard, and its primary function is to collect heat from soil underneath the frost line.
