Geothermal heating systems make use of the earth's natural ground temperature. These systems include heat pump units that are capable of heating and cooling the entire structure. The heat pump installed within the building circulates warm water via an underground pipe system. As the pump moves warm water throughout the building, a blower then distributes warm air from one room to another through a system of air ducts. While installation and upfront costs of geothermal heating systems are quite expensive, long-term benefits are significant. These types of systems offer big savings on electricity and overall operating costs in the long run. They also work best in regions with moderate temperatures. You may also explore ductless heat pumps Victoria systems that don't require ductwork systems. Air ducts take a great deal of time and money to install and if you want high efficiency heat pump systems that don't require ductwork, check out our range of products and services here at Home Heat Pumps Victoria.
Other building owners take advantage of solar energy, which is the most abundant and most practical heat source available. Properties that use solar energy for their heating system employ thermal storage or passive solar heating systems that don't require pumps, fans, and any other electrical control equipment to heat or cool the building. Instead, they use a carefully designed system of walls, windows, and floors that store heat energy from the sun.
