How Does Geothermal Work? 

A geothermal heating and cooling system works much like an air source heat pump. Rather than disperse heat from your home into the air outside during the summer season, though, geothermal systems dump the heat into the ground. During the winter, they draw heat from the ground in order to heat one’s home. Because temperatures beneath the ground are very constant, geothermal systems are very consistent and reliable. Reliable enough, in fact, to use that thermal energy in order to heat water in a geothermal water heating system. By using a device called a desuperheater, you can integrate your water heater into a geothermal HVAC system. This device acts as an auxiliary heat exchanger, using very hot gases from the compressor in the heat pump in order to heat water in the water heater. These devices may even be used with tankless water heaters.
