basements and so forth so that you don’t have a rather space-consuming heating system in the middle of your home.
Second, ClimateMaster Geothermal heat pump designs make use of an environmentally-friendly refrigerant, which makes
them rather appealing to the segment of the renewable energy using community that is most concerned with protecting

Geothermal Heat Pump
The heart of the geothermal
heating and cooling system is the ground loop. This is where heat is taken from the home and deposited in the Earth
in the summer and where heat is acquired and taken into the home in the winter. There are different types of loops
that are used to provide geothermal energy but, for the vast majority of homes, a closed loop system will be
appropriate. A closed loop system uses anti-freeze. There are environmentally friendly types of anti-freeze
available that do not damage the ozone layer and that can provide great service for the geothermal heat pumps in
Installing geothermal in Massachusetts means
that you are freed from some significant financial burdens. While you will pay a bit more money than you would
for other HVAC systems to have a geothermal system installed, you will also never have to pay the gas company or
another utility company for heating or cooling as long as the geothermal system is functioning. These systems
allow you to harness the energy of the Earth to provide effective heating and cooling for your home, which means
that you will save a significant amount of money.
The environmental benefits of installing
geothermal in Massachusetts cannot be overstated. In the simplest terms, you are making use of energy that is
already there instead of burning fossil fuels to release the energy stored in them. These systems are also very
flexible in terms of installation. Geothermal heat pumps in Massachusetts can be installed inside the home in a
discreet location or they can be installed in exterior locations, depending upon the design of the pump. The
installation expert will be able to tell you what your options are in this regard and will be able to let you
know which pumps would be suitable.
Geothermal in Massachusetts will, of course,
require that you install a ground loop. There are many different ways that this can be done. For a closed loop,
a skilled contractor can sometimes install a horizontal loop, which is buried an appropriate distance underneath
the ground and which circulates the anti-freeze through pipes that lay horizontally, or they may install a
vertical loop if you don't have enough land to accommodate a horizontal loop. There are plenty of different ways
that geothermal heat pumps in Massachusetts can be installed and that homeowners can take advantage of the
benefits of these systems. If you're interested in exploring your options in this regard, talking to an expert
is the best way to start and will reveal to you what you have available.
