The Expertise Of Your Geothermal Installer Will Dictate System Performance — And ROI

The Expertise Of Your Geothermal Installer Will Dictate System Performance -- And ROIIf you’re considering a geothermal air conditioning or pool heating system for your Florida home, it’s important you turn to a professional geothermal installer. A geothermal system is an extremely energy efficient, environmentally-friendly choice that will give you years of reliable service at an economical cost. They are technically complex, however, and should not be considered a project that can be undertaken without an in-depth knowledge of HVAC and geothermal principles. 

Geothermal systems use a network of pipes in a closed- or open-loop system. In a closed-loop system — the pipes are buried a short distance under the surface of the ground where temperatures remain relatively consistent throughout the year. A refrigerant flows through these pipes and, as it’s pressurized and depressurized, it captures and releases heat during shifts from liquid to gas and back again. This configuration provides you with a ongoing source of heat capture and dispersal.

The performance of your geothermal system and the savings you see from this energy source will depend on the quality of installation you receive. Your geothermal installer will be able to evaluate your site and recommend the best techniques for installation. The tech will assess the geology, hydrology and available space to assess the characteristics of the site. He or she will also be able to tell you if a horizontal installation or a vertical installation is best and will have available the equipment to perform horizontal drilling for installation of the pipe loops.

Your geothermal installer will be well-trained in handling the refrigerant and making sure that the refrigerant system and internal components such as the compressor and evaporator work together to produce the largest amount of energy at the greatest level of efficiency. The expert will also be able to install efficiently-designed ductwork and effective air handling equipment for moving conditioned air throughout your home.
