What is Geothermal? | How Geothermal Systems Work | Geothermal FAQ

Houston geothermal heat pump systems let you take advantage of the Earth's natural insulating properties to heat and cool your home at significantly lower costs than traditional methods. Heating and cooling costs make up a large part of your monthly energy bill. With energy costs soaring, more and more homeowners are looking for innovative solutions to help them save money on heating and cooling their homes.

A-1 Tops Services has the solution - and it's literally right beneath your feet! Much of the heating and cooling for your home can come from below the surface using a geothermal heat pump. While the temperature of the air varies greatly with the seasons, the temperature of the ground at 50 feet beneath the surface remains at a steady temperature all year round.

A geothermal heat pump, or ground source heat pump, works by burying a loop of piping nearly 300 feet beneath the surface of the ground. This loop serves as a heat exchanger using water or a solution that combines water with small amounts of antifreeze as a transfer medium. During the winter months, when the temperature above ground is cooler than it is just beneath the surface, the liquid in the geothermal heating system circulates through the loop and absorbs the Earth's ambient heat. This heat is brought to the surface and transferred to a heat pump. This heat pump warms the air and then your regular heating system warms the air some more.

Geothermal home heating and cooling systems don't have to work as hard to keep the house warm, saving you money on heating bills. During the summer months the system works in reverse, removing heat from the house and circulating it through the loop so it can be absorbed into the Earth, saving you money on your air conditioning bills. Since most areas in the US have stable shallow ground temperatures, geothermal power can be used almost anywhere throughout the country, although systems in different areas will have varying degrees of efficiency and energy savings.
