A geothermal heat pump heats the home by using solar energy stored in the bedrock.
The amount of solar energy in the rock is almost unlimited (there are those who claim that the heat could fail when too many in a neighbourhood drill for heat, but this is not the case).
Please see our animation for geothermal heat pumps, also called ground source heat pumps.
Using a geothermal heat pump is an environmentally friendly alternative that reduces your costs effectively. Additionally, it is a convenient way to heat the house.
A geothermal heat pump from Thermia operates almost independent throughout lifespan, which usually last for at least 20-30 years. A geothermal heat pump automatically regulates the heat from the temperature outside to the temperature you want inside.
In order to use a geothermal heat pump, a hole is drilled into the bedrock to a depth of between 100 and 200 meters, depending on how deep the rock is located. Then a pipe is connected to the house and lowered into the hole. With a geothermal heat pump you then can heat both your house and hot water.
The benefits of choosing a geothermal heat pump from Thermia are many:
