How Geothermal Heat Pump Systems Work

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.

A-1 Top Services’ unique Geothermal Heat Pump Systems take advantage of the Earth’s natural insulating properties to regulate your home’s temperature with your pool pump. Geothermal heat pumps systems are considered to be the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC systems available. Our patent pending geothermal heating system will keep your home comfortable all year round while delivering huge savings on your monthly energy bills.

For several years, geothermal power has been used to heat swimming pools and it has been proven to be incredibly effective at keeping the water in the pool at the desired temperature. A-1 Top’s amazing new technology adapts this geothermal heat pump system to heat and cool your home at much lower costs than traditional HVAC systems.

Our geothermal heating and cooling systems operate on what is called an open loop system. It works in much the same manner as an air-to-air heat pump, but instead of air-to-air coils, it uses water pumped through buried pipes between the pool and the pump as its medium for transferring heat. Your swimming pool serves as both heat source and heat sink, using circulating water to transfer heat into or out of your home, depending on the outside temperature and keeping your pool cool at the same time for a more enjoyable swim.

This type of heating and cooling system is far more efficient than an air source heat pump system. During the winter, the water collects heat and carries it through the system and into the building. During the summer, the system is reversed, pulling heat from the building, carrying it through the system and circulating it through the ground to cool it. This type of system is for people thinking about getting an inground swimming pool or who already have a pool that needs to run the pump up to 10 hours to keep the ph properly maintained. Why not run your geothermal water source heat pump and save energy at the same time!

Basically you can have an air-to-air heat pump that’s running a lot of current and spending a lot of money, but if you have a pool you can use the pump from the pool and a add a tax credited 30% water source heat pump and save money and run the same system for less than a 20k investment.
