Geothermal heat capture this in the ground, using vertical or horizontal sensors depending on the lay of the land:
In the horizontal capture, energy is extracted a network of sensors that are buried to a depth of between 80 and 120 cm. The earth is warming energy accumulated by the sun and the water flowing through this network of pipes carries energy to the heat pump, which then transforms into hot water for heating.
The vertical sensor is buried in a hole that can be 100 m deep. It captures the boundless energy that contains the ground and then this energy is used to heat the house.
Groundwater can also make the necessary energy supply and the heat pump provides a constant temperature to heat / cool the house.
* An efficient system that allows significant energy savings.
* It is very easy to create a comfort level in keeping with the season.
* When groundwater is not consumed is returned to its place of origin.
* Is ecological system.
* The initial investment is high. However, often there are tax deductions that reduce
* The area of land needed for horizontal capture is important, the order of twice the surface area
to be heated.
* For a vertical system, you generally need to apply for a permit related administrative
the protection of groundwater. Check with local authorities
