How Do GeoThermal Heat Pumps Work?

Did you know that GeoThermal heat pump systems have been used since the 1940s? They use 25-50% less electricity than standard systems and are environmentally friendly. If you need a heat pump for your commercial swimming pool, making a switch to a geothermal system will help your organization reap rewards on lowered utility bills.

An air-source heater is the most common type used to heat swimming pools and close to 50% more energy to perform the same heating task as a geothermal heat pump. Additionally, a geothermal heat pump has fewer moving parts and because the pumps are housed indoors, they are more durable, last longer and pay for themselves.

Symbiont Services Recommended by CES

In the latest edition of Commercial Energy Specialists (CES) newsletter, CES Water Quality News, Symbiont Services was recommended for professional water source heat pump installations.

“Water Source Heat Pumps: Water Source heat pumps pull heat out of ground or lake water, and transfer it to the pool water, saving you thousands of dollars a year. Extensive installation makes the payback longer, but these units can heat AND cool, so you can have year-round direct control of pool or spa temperature.

★Pitfalls: This installation should be handled by an experienced heating professional (like Symbiont Services), as the well-drilling, directional boring, and DEP permits are beyond the skill set of a typical pool company. You will also want to watch your chemistry as chemical imbalances can destroy your heat pump investment.”
