I Need to Install a Geothermal Heat Pump

During my last Heating, Ventilation plus A/C servicing, I asked the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional about how I could make my Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system more economically friendly.

I wasn’t excited with how much energy I was using in order to run my heat and air. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional suggested I look into geothermal heat pumps. I’d heard the term before, however it sounded really complex to me. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional didn’t use simple terms to explain geothermal heat pumps either, so I was left more confused than ever. According to him, a geothermal heat pump took the energy from the earth to cool and heat a home. When I did my research, I discovered that someone would have to drill wells into the ground to insert water pipes. The water pipes would have a constant flow of water that transferred into the house. The water would heat and cool depending on the season, and during the winter season months, the water would be warmer from the ground and during the summer, the water would be cooler from the cool earth, but for reasons I can’t understand, the geothermal heat pump takes this cool and sizzling air and finds its way into the air duct to cool and heat the house! Even after all my research, I still don’t understand how a geothermal heat pump works, however it sounds like it’s the most economically friendly way to heat and cool my house. The cost is much higher than a normal heat pump, however it pays for itself after a few years. I also read that some sites offer a tax credit for geothermal heat pumps, because they want to encourage more homeowners to install them.
