Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are heating and cooling systems that use the ground as a source of heat in the winter and a sink of heat in the summer. They work by circulating a mixture of water and antifreeze (usually propylene glycol) through a loop of buried pipes, called a ground loop, which transfers heat to or from the ground.
In the winter, the fluid in the ground loop absorbs heat from the ground and carries it to the heat pump. The heat pump then compresses the heat to a higher temperature, making it suitable for use in heating the building. In the summer, the process is reversed, with the heat pump absorbing heat from the indoor air and transferring it to the ground loop, where it is dissipated into the ground.
GSHP systems are considered to be one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly heating and cooling technologies available. They can provide both heating and cooling with a single system, and they use renewable energy from the ground to heat and cool the building, reducing the need for fossil fuels. They can also be used in combination with other heating and cooling systems, such as boilers and air conditioners, to provide a hybrid heating solution.
The installation of a GSHP system requires a substantial investment, but the long-term savings in energy costs and the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions make it an attractive option for many building owners. Additionally, GSHP systems have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance, which makes them a good investment for the long term.
