Has the time come to replace your home cooling system? Are you having a new home constructed, and are weighing your air conditioning system options? If you have not given a geothermal cooling system any consideration, or if you are not even aware of such technology and what it entails, we encourage you to pump the brakes a bit and to familiarize yourself with all that geothermal cooling in Everett, WA has to offer. You may just find, upon reviewing geothermal cooling and its many benefits, that this is precisely the type of system that you’ve dreamed of.
How Does Geothermal Cooling Work?
Geothermal cooling entails the burial of what is known as a geothermal loop on one’s property. Through this loop cycles an antifreeze solution. When refrigerant pumping through the geothermal system absorbs heat from the air in your home, that heat is transferred to this heat transfer fluid, and the thermal energy is deposited into the ground. The temperature beneath the surface of the ground is quite constant, and cooler than the air outside when you are running your AC. That makes it easier for the system to disperse this heat. Because heat pump technology is used in such systems, the operation is easily reversed, as well. Heat is drawn out of the ground via the geothermal loop, transferred to the refrigerant in the system, and used to warm your home during the winter season.
The Benefits of Geothermal Cooling
The major benefit of using a geothermal air conditioning system is the fact that such systems double as highly efficient heating systems during the winter season, too. Plus, due to few moving parts, geothermal systems tend to have very long lifespans.
