How Much Energy Does a Geothermal Heat Pump System Consume?
A geothermal heat pump system consumes significantly less energy than does a traditional heating and air conditioning system like a furnace or an air conditioner. This is important because it is an extremely energy-efficient option that can outperform the system you already have.
Consider for a moment the coefficient of performance (COP) that a geothermal system has compared to a traditional heating or air conditioning system. The COP reflects the ratio of energy consumption to the amount of heating or cooling energy produced by a system - the higher the COP, the more efficient the system is. In the case of traditional heating and air conditioning systems, the highest COP devices on the market are roughly rated at 2.75.
This is considered very good and will cost significantly less to operate than a traditional furnace or air conditioner. However, a geothermal system uses even less energy and often has a COP of between 3 and 6. Even the lowest-efficiency geothermal systems are more efficient than the highest-efficiency alternatives. That’s a great deal and a good way to upgrade your home’s energy efficiency.
What Environmental Benefits Will You See?
Because a geothermal system uses so much less energy, it will of course be better for the environment as well. The amount of fuel consumed is significantly less than a traditional heating or air conditioning system. For heating, this is a big deal. Traditional heating systems typically consume oil, natural gas, propane, or electricity to create heat. A geothermal heat pump system extracts heat from a natural resource – one that is 100% renewable because it is provided by the sun as the earth absorbs sunlight.
Geothermal systems benefit from costing much less to use, largely because they don’t expend a lot of fuel. By tapping into the ambient energy of the earth – an infinitely renewable resource – they can heat and cool your home, using only a little electricity to power the heat pump. Both you and Mother Nature benefit from the results!
