Atlanta and Loganville, GA Geothermal Services
There are a plethora of heating and cooling options currently available on the market. But one of the best choices is geothermal heating and cooling system installed by Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning. Geothermal systems in Atlanta and Loganville, GA gather heat from the ground and push it into a nearby residence for use in heating air. While it utilizes a similar technology as heat pumps with thermal energy, the heat is pulled from the ground rather than the air, which is much more effective all year round.
Geothermal systems have the ability to either heat an interior space or cool an interior space. When it is run in reverse, the pipes remove the heat from inside, and push it back out into the ground, while the cold from the ground is piped back into the home. Utilizing Atlanta geothermal technology in this way is a very efficient heating and cooling option, no matter what size the space is.
Types of Geothermal Loop Systems in Atlanta and Loganville, GA
When determining which type of Atlanta geothermal loop system is best for your residential space, it helps to know a little bit about the options which are currently available. There are vertical ground loops, horizontal ground loops, and pond loops, each designed for a specific use and in relation to particular circumstances of the home and land surrounding it.
Vertical Ground Loop Systems
The vertical ground loop system is an ideal option where space is limited and they have the ability to be placed under buildings or parking lots. Vertical holes from 100 to 400 feet deep are installed with loops of pipes with u–tubes on the bottom. This gives the pipes a good deal of soil contact. The vertical ground loops attach to a horizontal underground header pipe which takes fluid back and forth from the building to the loop system.
Horizontal Ground Loop Systems
The horizontal ground loop system is ideal for smaller geothermal system projects and where there is plenty space for the ground loop. Parallel pipes from 100 to 600 feet in length are laid horizontally into a five foot deep trench. The pipes are linked to the heat pump where fluid circulates into the home. A directional drill system can bore holes under landscaping, tree roots and irrigation systems that are already in place, offering the smallest amount of existing lawn disturbance.
Pond Loop Systems
The pond loop system is normally used when in close proximity to a body of water such as a pond or lake. Fluid moves through polyethylene pipes which are situated deep underwater, instead of underground. The pipes can be coiled into a slinky shape in order for more of the pipe’s surface area to touch the water.
