Residential geothermal systems are a great way to use the earth’s natural heating and cooling cycle to heat and cool your home efficiently in San Antonio. If you are unfamiliar with the way that geothermal technology works, consider the following.
During the warmer months, a heat pump brings hot air out of your home and processes it through a series of pipes that are buried anywhere from 3 to 6 feet or even 150 feet to 400 feet depending on the geography of your area, available space, composition of soil, etc. Water circulates through these piping loops or even to a nearby water source and returns as cool dehumidified air back into your home for ultimate comfort.
During the winter months, geothermal heating uses the earth’s natural heat energy to warm your home to a comfortable level using the same basic pumping and looping mechanism as in the summer. If you can’t believe how it could be that amazing and efficient, please call us at 1st Choice Air Conditioning and Heating Services in San Antonio for more information in geothermal systems.
