Benefits of Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pump systems utilize the natural thermal properties of the earth to maintain the temperature of the heat pump water loop, completely eliminating the boiler and heat rejector. They are recognized as the most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly HVAC system generally available by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Geothermal heat pump systems provide all of the benefits of a water-loop heat pump system and many more. Here are some of the benefits with a commercial geothermal system compared to traditional HVAC systems:

  • Increases energy efficiency and lowers energy costs by utilizing renewable energy for loop temperature conditioning and by providing more favorable water temperatures to the heat pumps throughout the year
  • Proven reliability
  • Ease of service
  • Eliminates boiler and heat rejector installation, operation and maintenance costs mean low HVAC lifetime costs
  • Eliminates all outdoor equipment and thus eliminates or greatly reduces:
    • Any related concerns over architectural aesthetics,
    • Radiated sound
    • Low temperature protection
    • Legionella and provides superior indoor air quality
    • Vandalism
  • Eliminates the water-loop temperature controls and associated panels, control valves, switches and sensors
  • Quickly achieve LEED certification
  • Reduces mechanical room space to just the pumping aspects
  • Individual zones and single zones: Geothermal allows water-source heat pump systems to be economically scaled down to applications as small as a single zone
