Geothermal Heating

During the winter, ground temperature is warmer than the air, and during the summer it’s cooler than the air. As a result, heat can be transferred from the earth through “ground loops”—durable plastic pipes that contain a liquid—and channeled indoors. Once inside, the heat that has been captured by the ground loops is gathered in an air handler and distributed by an air delivery system (often the home’s existing duct system).
