This is how geothermal systems work

Geothermal heating, cooling and hot water systems run on electricity like conventional heating and cooling systems do, but they use less of it.

While conventional systems take heat from the air in order to heat or cool your home or business, geothermal systems take heat from the ground. This uses less electricity because the ground is a constant 15 degrees, compared to the air temperature, which can be 30 plus degrees in Summer or 5 degrees in Winter.

If you’re an architect looking to design an environmentally friendly house, you can incorporate a complete heating, cooling and hot water solution, which is achieved in two ways: ground and air sourced.
