How Do Geothermal Systems Work?
Drawing heat from the Earth, geothermal systems work through liquid-filled underground pipes (or loops) that absorb solar warmth from the ground and carry it to your heat pump. As ground temperatures remain largely unchanged, there is no need for a backup radiator or furnace, even on unusually cold days. Less expensive than direct electric heating, oil boilers and perhaps even gas boilers, heat pumps are cheap to run and need less maintenance than combustion-based heating systems. Properly-sized geothermal systems in Lucasville, Jackson, Wheelersburg, Portsmouth, OH, and the surrounding areas installed by Generation Heating & Air are a great way to boost property values.
