Geothermal Heat Pump Theory

Environmentally Responsible

The geothermal heat pump is also environmentally friendly since no combustion occurs at the site where it is used. Depending on the source of electrical supply (hydro electric for example) the transmission of energy from the power plant to the home
is completely non-polluting to our environment.


When the electricity used to operate the geothermal heat pump is produced from coal or oil the reduction in air pollution from sulfur and carbon dioxide is reduced by 65 to 75% since the power plant only has to produce 25 to 35% as much power to heat a home as it would if it supplied the same customer using electric baseboard heaters.
