The geothermal heat pump, also known as ground source heat pump, is a highly efficient renewable energy technology that is gaining wide acceptance for residential and commercial buildings.
These pumps are used for space heating and cooling as well as water heating as well as being something innovative and with better quality.
Having said that, it is important first of all to mention that this ground source heat pump has an energy expenditure in which just distributing space heating will run at a COP of 4.3, which means that in order to produce 11,000 kWh of heating , the ground source heat pump will need 2,558 kWh of electricity with its energy price varying from state to state.
Furthermore, we must say that despite the energy expenditure heat pumps are much cheaper to operate than direct electricity heating.
This is because they are cheaper to operate than oil boilers and can be cheaper than gas boilers. Heat pumps require less maintenance than combustion-based heating systems. Yet another aspect is that if your property has a heat pump, it will make your property appreciate in market price compared to any other property.
Therefore, we can say that Geothermal energy, or geothermal energy (geo: earth; thermal: heat), is the energy obtained from the heat coming from the interior of the Earth. The Earth’s heat exists in a part below the planet’s surface, but in some parts it is closer to the surface than others, which makes it easier to use.
Therefore, this energy has many practical applications, it can be used to heat homes, greenhouses, swimming pools, agricultural greenhouses and geothermal plants for the production of electricity, and in addition it is considered renewable, that is, in addition to helping to save money in the pocket. , also collaborates with the environment as a whole.
