Exploring and Understanding Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Posted on: 2011-11-15


There are various contractor companies that can help you have the safest, cleanest, and most reliable conditioning system in your home. However, the right company should offer its customers geothermal consultations and appraisals free of charge.

The concept behind geothermal technology is that it can provide your home with alternative sources of energy, especially when cooling or heating your home. Several people have already considered switching from using traditional sources of energy to using geothermal technology. And it has been observed that compared to ordinary cooling and heating systems, using geothermal technology can help you save on energy bills in the long run.

Understanding Geothermal Technology

We understand that geothermal technology can be confusing. That’s why Parabola Developments is proud to offer free consultations and appraisals for geothermal technology.

Depending on geographical locations, your general contractor will appraise and tell you if it’s feasible to install a geothermal cooling or heating system in your home, since there are several loop configurations available; the vertical, horizontal, or submerged loops.

How a typical geothermal system works

In winter, when water circulation in the underground loop system absorbs heat from the earth, the water is carried to the geothermal unit, which then becomes compressed to a higher temperature and sent as warm air indoors. During summer, the system works the other way. The underground loop system expels warmth or heat from your home into the cooler earth. What’s good about this is that this heat exchange process is not only natural, but it is also a highly efficient way to create a cooler environment in your home.

One ideal general contractor who can help you with your geothermal technology needs is Troy of Parabola Developments. Parabola Developments can show you which type of loop system is best suited for your home, since the best application will depend on the characteristics of your property, as checked and appraised by a reliable general contractor.
