Inside Geothermal Heat Pumps
While the ground we walk on changes temperature depending on how hot or how cold the air is, the ground several feet below us maintains a constant temperature all year long. That natural phenomenon is what makes the geothermal heat pump possible. By running water or antifreeze through a series of pipes below the ground, a geothermal heat pump captures underground heat and makes it available to you for use in your Seattle home. Using the same principle, the heat pump can cool your home by removing the heat from your indoor air and transferring it under the ground.
