Another cost effective application is to supplement your domestic hot water (DHW) heating requirements by using surplus heat from your geothermal system. Heat can be recovered from the heat pump during both the heating and the cooling seasons to supplement the cost of keeping your DHW tank warm.
Radiant floor warming (hydronic heating) is another popular application for a geothermal system. Basement floors, bathroom floors and other areas of your home that are traditionally cold under foot can be keep warm with a radiant floor warming system. While it is possible to retrofit areas of an existing home with a floor warming system, it is more common to consider this additional feature during the planning and construction of a new home. Geothermal heat pumps are well suited to these applications.
