You are always looking for better, more environmentally-friendly ways to do things. You have a plastic bottle you reuse for your water, you faithfully separate your waste into recycling containers, and you compost the biodegradable waste. Why shouldn't your home be just as efficient?
- Home heating and cooling
- Water heating
- Radiant heating
In this blog we are going to talk about Trane and their unique EarthWise™ Geothermal System. A geothermal system works like a heat pump, only on a much larger scale. In cold weather, your home is warmed by heat brought in from the earth. During warm weather, your home is cooled by the movement of heat from your home back into the earth.
With Trane, they offer four types of geothermal configurations: Open Loop, Pond Loop, Horizontal Loop and Vertical Loop. Our helpful Shakley Mechanical staff will help you determine which installation works best for your needs. The best one will be the one that best matches your land situation.
- Open Loop – Uses existing groundwater as a heat transfer medium.T2GX / T1GXAll-in-One Geothermal System
- Pond Loop – Uses the water in a nearby lake or pond to absorb or gather heat.
- Horizontal Loop – When plenty of space is available, the heat transfer tubes are not as deep, and extend out rather than down.
- Vertical Loop – When space is limited, the heat transfer tubes are sunk straight down into the earth.
