Sacramento, California (PressExposure) March 04, 2011 -- According to Heating California, Geothermal Heating is one of the most efficient heating systems nowadays. Experts say that these heating systems takes the advantage of the sub surface heat of the earth and use it in heating and cooling a building. The sub-surface is relatively cool in summer and hot in winter.
As explained by a geothermal heating system expert, this system works by placing water solution-filled pipes at an appropriate level below the earth. Ideal depth is six feet. It is known that sub-surface ground temperature remains constant at 45ºF to 70ºF. The water in the pipes then absorbs the temperature of the ground and runs into a heat exchanger which thereby giving off the heat to a refrigerant.
The gas refrigerant is then made to pass through a compressor further raising the temperature. This compressed gas refrigerant is again made to go through a second heat exchange releasing heat to the air which is then circulated through the building's air ducts. This process is reversed or kept as per requirements during winter and summer.
It's efficiency and effectiveness is the reason why most manufacturers of heating systems CA consider it to be the most efficient heating and cooling systems.
The expert further said that if the pipes of the heating system is not placed correctly there is a chance that the heating system will malfunction. Therefore, the help of heating repair service provider is considered really necessary for installation of this particular system.
Talking about other benefits of geothermal heating systems, geothermal heating systems can save well over forty to seventy percent of your annual energy bills and taxes.
Most environment activists too support the use to geothermal heating systems since these systems are environment friendly for it doesn't emit harmful emissions.
The use of this system too ease the worry of hot water supply in the house during winter since the water used in it can be supplied for use in the house.
Operation is quiet as in comparison to other heating and cooling systems.
