Enhancing Indoor Air Quality With Geothermal Heat

With no risk of soot, carbon monoxide, or other combustible contaminants, a geothermal heating and cooling system can contribute to your home’s indoor air quality in a variety of ways. Learn more from a knowledgeable SMHC team member!

Choosing the Right Geothermal System

At Simcoe Muskoka Home Comfort, our qualified and knowledgeable team will work with you to determine which geothermal system setup will be the most effective for your particular home and HVAC goals.

  • Horizontal Bed Systems are ideal for larger properties and involve the laying of a closed system of pipes into shallow trenches spread over a wide area.  
  • Vertical Systems are often the best fit for Simcoe area properties that have limited yard space or where granite makes horizontal trenches an impossibility. Instead, pipes are inserted into holes drilled deep into the ground.
  • Lake Loop Systems involve the laying of pipes directly into an available body of water.  Water can be an efficient heat exchange medium.  

Hybrid Systems are another popular choice in the Simcoe area. This type of geothermal system can be combined with another renewable or conventional energy source (propane, natural gas, electric, or air source heat pumps).

Advantages of Geothermal Heat Sources

The advantages of choosing geothermal heating for your Simcoe area home are numerous! They include:

  • Highly efficient
    • A heat pump system can offer up to 4 times the efficiency of a traditional heating and cooling system and decrease your household’s carbon emissions by more than 60%!
  • Cost savings
    • Dramatically decreases your utility and HVAC operating costs while increasing your home equity.
  • Removes reliance on propane, oil, or natural gas
  • All-season comfort
  • Quiet, odour-free operation
  • Rebates may be available to offset initial installation costs

Understanding Geothermal Heating

If HVAC efficiency is a priority for you in your Simcoe area home, then a geothermal heating and cooling system may be the perfect solution! At SMHC, our experienced team is proud to offer high-quality geothermal heat pumps that will reduce your energy costs and keep your family comfortable all year round.

But how does geothermal heating actually work? Let’s take a closer look:

  • Air temperatures fluctuate drastically from season to season (and even from day to night), but just a few feet beneath your Simcoe area yard, ground temperatures remain much more stable. No matter what season it is or what surprises Mother Nature may be throwing your way, the earth’s temperature in southern Ontario will be maintaining a steady 3-11 degrees Celsius.
  • Geothermal systems harness the reliable and completely renewable thermal properties of the earth to warm your home in winter and cool it in summer. Underground piping cycles water and antifreeze to your heat pump, where excess heat is either removed from your home’s air and distributed into the ground (cooling) or warmth from the ground is diffused into your home (heating).
  • Our geothermal systems are made from 3 main components: Ground loops, a heat pump, and a heat distribution system.
    • Ground Loops – These are a closed system of underground pipes through which a mixture of water and antifreeze is cycled.
    • Heat Pump – An energy-efficient alternative to a traditional furnace/air conditioner that uses compression to either heat or cool your home, depending on the season.

Distribution System – This is usually either ductwork or radiant in-floor heating that distributes heat throughout your home.
