Heating And Cooling With A Ground Source Heat Pump

GSHP systems heat and cool buildings using the ground as the energy source. GSHP systems have been used for years, but recent advances have made these systems viable alternatives to conventional heating and cooling systems. Also, GSHPs are more environmentally friendly since they can reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, such as oil and natural gas, and the potentially harmful by-products associated with their use. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has concluded that GSHP systems are the most energy efficient and environmentally clean of all the heating and cooling options.
