These “Boilersless/Towerless” heat pump systems use the natural thermal properties of the earth to dissapate or capture heat for the water loop. Geothermal heat pumps operate in an identical fashion to water-source heat pump units. However, without the need for a boiler or cooling tower, they save substantial energy costs and space. The water loop system is underground and the units are inside the building. Thus, the environmentally friendly geothermal system preserves the architecural design of a building naturally.
Geothermal Earth Loops
Geothermal Earth Loops come in several different configurations depending on space availability and soil properties. Chances are at some point you have either stood over, or walked across a geothermal loop field. Loop fields can be located under parking lots, landscaped areas, or any number of other locations. All earth loops use high-density polyethylene pipe to circulate either water or an antifreeze mixture. All joints and connection fittings are thermally fused to prevent leaks and most piping comes with a 25 year or longer warranty.
