It is a probe buried in a well that can reach 100 m depth. The water runs through the probe and the latter recovers the inexhaustible energy found in the basement.
One uses high-density polyethylene (SDR-11), the other with copper. In the first case, a mixture of water and antifreeze (20-30%), usually methanol or glycol, is circulated in Quebec. Geothermal systems may consist of a piping system whose loop will be closed (with a “U” at its end), or open. The first one draws the energy into the ground vertically.
The geothermal probe requires only one square metre of ground. It consists of four tubes forming two “U” in the basement in which glycol water circulates. No fuel storage, no chimney flue, no maintenance.
It should be noted that the useful life of the underground piping system is estimated to be at least fifty years. The lifetime of the geothermal heat pump, it is evaluated between 20 and 25 years because it is fully installed in the residence, therefore sheltered from the weather, contrary to an atmospheric heat pump (air-air) which includes one unit inside and another outside.
New to the renovation. In addition to the investment, the maintenance cost is very low; A factor that is not to be neglected when choosing a system. Annual energy savings are also an incomparable advantage.
During the summer season your house is cooled by performing a reverse operation of the heat pump.
