The earth’s surface is a giant receptacle for the sun’s heat and stores a whopping 47% of the solar energy that reaches us. Geothermal heating and cooling systems, also known variously as ground source heat pumps, earth source heat pumps or geothermal heat pumps, are capable of extracting the energy from the earth and using it to heat and cool your home. The geothermal system looks like a typical gas furnace except it has a refrigeration system in place of the fuel burner. It heats, it cools and it can provide virtually free hot water and dehumidification. Geothermal heating and cooling systems are the most efficient home comfort systems available on the market today.
