A geothermal heat pump system is a central heating and/or air conditioning system that actively pumps heat to or from the shallow ground. It uses the earth as either a source of heat in the winter or as a coolant in the summer. This design takes advantage of moderate temperatures in the shallow ground to boost efficiency and reduce operational costs. It may be combined with solar heating to form a geosolar system with even greater efficiency.
Geothermal heat pumps are also known by a variety of other names, including geoexchange, earth-coupled, earth energy, ground-source or water-source heat pump.
Toronto Plumbing Service offers sizing and design considerations as well as energy efficient solutions when considering the system for your application.
The installation involves closed and open loop systems horizontally or vertically, for residential, commercial or industrial premises. Using vertical boring and lateral placement, Toronto Plumbing Service Inc., can efficiently access all areas with relative ease.
Toronto Plumbing Service Inc., is a specialist in Domestic hot water systems and space heating / cooling systems using geothermal technologies.
Payback time on these systems may be as little as 5-8 years.
Environmental agencies consider ground-source heat pumps the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean and cost-effective space conditioning systems available. Heat pumps offer significant emission reductions potential, particularly where they are used for both heating and cooling and where the electricity is produced from renewable resources.
