Water Geothermal – Open Loop

Geothermal Open LoopWhen you live in a rural location with a well, an open loop geothermal system is primarily the geothermal system of choice. 

An open loop geothermal heating system utilizes the earth’s natural heat stored in the ground water deep below the earth’s surface. Open loop ground water systems are ideally suited for homes that have existing water wells available or a good potential source for well water.

Open loop geothermal heating systems draw 55F well water as the source of heat in the heating mode. Since ground water temperatures remain very constant throughout the year despite wide variations in the outside air temperature, your geothermal heating unit is capable of maintaining its efficiencies no matter how hot or cold it is outside.

The water is pumped from your well into the geothermal unit located inside the house water through a heat exchanger located in the geothermal heating unit.

The heat in the refrigerant is then sent to a radiator coil which in turn transfers the heat into the air that is distributed throughout the ductwork.

During the air conditioning mode, the system provides cool dry air to your home. When ground water is available, this system usually has the lowest installation cost.
