How Do Geothermal Systems Work?
Similar to a standard heat pump, a geothermal heating and cooling system avoids the higher consumption of fuel that more traditional home comfort systems depend on, in favor of the heat transfer process. In geothermal heating and cooling, an underground loop system is buried beneath your property, or in some cases submerged underwater.
The loop system contains a special antifreeze solution, which is non–toxic and non–corrosive, so that even in the coldest months when the surface of your ground is frozen, the system will not be impacted. Heat is absorbed from beneath the surface underground, and a heat exchanger transfers heat to the refrigerant in the heat pump, where it can then be used to heat your home. The process is simply reversed in the summertime. If you are wondering whether a geothermal system is right for your Hendersonville, TN home, simply give us a call to discuss your options.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling Maintenance Services
One of the greatest benefits of a geothermal installation is how durable these systems are. When professionally serviced, the components of this system can last quite a while—often much longer than a traditional heating or cooling system. However, just like any other home comfort system, they do have a few moving parts and can occasionally run into problems.
