A geothermal heat pump system is a heating and/or an air conditioning system that uses the Earth's ability to store heat in the ground and water thermal masses. These systems operate based on the stability of underground temperatures. Just a few feet below the Earth’s surface exists a very stable temperature that is maintained throughout the year, depending upon the location's annual climate. A geothermal heat pump uses the Earth’s available heat in the winter to warm the indoors and it puts heat back into the ground in the summer, creating a cooler indoor environment.

A geothermal system differs from a conventional furnace or boiler by its ability to transfer heat versus the standard method of producing heat. As energy costs continue to rise and pollution concerns continue to be a hot topic, geothermal systems may hold a solution to both of these concerns.

Geothermal systems are able to transfer heat to and from the ground with minimal use of electricity. When comparing a geothermal system to an ordinary system, a homeowner can save anywhere from 30% to 70% annually on utilities. Even with the high initial costs of purchasing a geothermal system the payback period is relatively short, typically between three and five years. Geothermal systems are recognized as one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the market.
