Geothermal Drilling

A Geothermal system is used to extract heat from the earth. Geothermal drilling drills down into the bedrock to extract natural heat that can be used to heat your home or other buildings. The heat energy can be used in a conventional waterborne heating system, or it can be used to produce hot water. It is best used for underfloor heating. Geothermal drilling drills deep into the bedrock for one or more boreholes. A heat pump is used to gather and transfer the heat to the required heating system. You can save up to 60% off your heating bills with geothermal heating. They're are three main types of systems with Geothermal Drilling, An open loop system, A Vertical Loop System and a Horizontal Loop System. Both the Vertical Loop System and the Horizont Loop System are known as closed sytems. The system chosen depends on the amount of land and the conditions available.
