Geothermal Loops - Geothermal Loopfields
Geothermal installers are trained to determine the best type of geothermal loops to use in any situation. The type of loop installed is based on the property itself, available land, and installation costs based on geographic location.
Below is a description of the various types of geothermal loops.
Open loop systems are some of the easiest to install. An open loop system can utilize almost any water source that remains above 45 degrees F, which means wells, running streams, lakes, etc.
Our systems pump water from the source, through the geothermal heat pump, and then discharge the water after removing about 4 degrees of heat. The water remains clean and can be allowed to absorb back in to the water source where it regains the energy from the earth again for the next cycle through the geoexchange unit.
Closed geothermal loops use pipes in which both ends connect to the heat pump. Environmentally friendly glycol anti-freeze circulates within the loop to transfer heat from the ground to the geothermal heat pump. The lengths and number of loops required is determined by the heat loss of the building. Closed geothermal loops can be placed horizontally in shallow trenches or at the bottom of a pond, or vertically in wells where space is limited.
Vertical Geothermal Loops
Slinky loops are common for horizontal trenches as they enable a greater amount of tubing to be installed in a smaller space.
