How Geothermal Energy Systems Work

DEPCO Geothermal uses state-of-the-art heat pump systems to access the heat stored in the earth’s surface.  The geothermal heat pump uses this heat to “loop” through buried pipes, then it is pulled into the heat exchanger to both warm and cool a building.

The geothermal heat exchange works as a heating system in the winter.  Then the process reverses and Is utilized as an air conditioner in summer.

“Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are electrically powered systems that tap the stored energy of the greatest solar collector in existence: the earth.” Source: The International Ground Source Heat Association

Geothermal system layout consists of:

• Buried pipes in shallow ground near building and filled with circulating liquid
• Ductwork leading into the building
• Thermostat to control temperatures

There are three basic geothermal energy systems to adapt the landscape.  These are categorized as a horizontal loop, vertical loop or open loop systems.  These basic loop systems circulate a water based liquid through the pipes in a “looping system” and can be conformed to fit any type of building area.

Geothermal heat exchange systems can be an:

• Closed Loop Air System
• Closed Loop Water System
• Open Loop Water System

The advantages of using geothermal as an energy source are immense.  It is an earth friendly, cost efficient, natural resource for clean energy.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), geothermal energy systems are the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available.
