Geothermal Energy: Harnessing Mother Earth's Energy
For years, mankind has tried many energy sources. People have been accustomed to fuel-burning forms of energy like coals, oil, or gasoline, but these days more and more people are looking for a more sustainable form of energy. Many are looking for renewable sources that will ensure the future's energy supply, and will have less impact to the environment. Geothermal Energy is one of those.
Geothermal energy harnesses the internal heat of the Earth. There are recent advancements within the last few decades as to how to get the most of Geothermal Energy. It may be processed in plants for large-scale electricity production for cities, but it may also be used for heating and cooling individual structures with the use of Geothermal Heat Pumps.
Geothermal Heating is one of the applications for Geothermal Energy. One can use Geothermal Energy to heat their homes, just like how animals do when it's winter: they get deeper underground, closer to the source of heat. Shallow ground has near-constant temperature, a fact that animals understood and utilized very well during hibernation.
Every Geothermal HVAC system is composed of: a heat-pump unit, an air delivery system, and the ground heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is made of pipes that are buried in the ground, through which an anti-freeze flows through. Any heat from the ground is absorb by the fluid and carried through the pipes to heat up your home. Heat is then removed by the pump from the exchanger and carries it into the air delivery system. The process is reversed during hot days: heat is carried back to the ground. Some of the excess heat can even be used to heat the structure's water supply. This saves you money, because Geothermal Heating operates at a fraction of a cost of regular home and water supply heating. Why Choose Geothermal Heating?
People nowadays are becoming more and more concerned about the repercussions of using fossil fuel for energy. Aside from the indelible footprint it leaves on the environment, prices are always fluctuating depending on supply. People are ready to turn into a more renewable and sustainable source of energy. The country houses the biggest geothermal plant in the entire world, and because of the recent advancements in the design of Geothermal Systems, more and more Americans can now enjoy an eco-friendly way to heat their homes.
