How would you like to have a heating, air conditioning and domestic hot water system in your home that: saves energy and slashes utility bills up to 70%, is the most environmentally friendly and efficient technology compared to all other heating and cooling solutions available, cuts greenhouse gas emissions equivalent of taking two cars off the road or planting 750 trees, reduces maintenance costs to your HVAC solution, provides a safer home environment for you and your family by eliminating the burning of fossil fuels and the risk of carbon-monoxide poisoning, improves the year-round comfort of your home? Geothermal technology, also known as GeoExchange systems or Earth Energy Systems, provides you with all of these benefits.Thermal Creek Ltd. supplies Geothermal solutions for residential, commercial and industrial real estate. Our mission is to offer the highest quality Geothermal solutions, creating economic value for our customers and providing them with a level of comfort unmatched by conventional heating and cooling solutions.
We are committed to accelerate growth of the Geothermal industry and to make Geothermal one of the most prominent renewable energy sources. We believe that by doing so, we can make a significant contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Other Renewable Technologies
The name geothermal is somewhat misleading as the technology actually uses solar energy that is stored in the earth. The earth offers a steady and incredibly large heat source, heat sink and heat storage medium for thermal energy uses. Every day, the earth stores an amount of energy from the sun 500 times greater than all of mankind combined daily energy needs.
Geothermal is one way of re-using some of this energy by transferring it from beneath the earth's crust to our homes. Geothermal technology is based on the fact that the earth, beneath the frost line, remains at a relatively constant temperature throughout the year. Warmer than the outside air during winter, and cooler during summer very much like a cave.
Products and Services:
A GSHP is in many ways similar to a refrigerator. Think of the area to be heated/cooled by the geothermal system as the inside of your home refrigerator. Any refrigeration device (window air conditioner, refrigerator, freezer, etc.) moves heat from a space where it isn’t wanted and discharges that heat somewhere else. The main difference between a GSHP and your home refrigerator is that the GSHP is reversible and can provide either heating or cooling to almost any space or location you choose. For example in addition to cooling/heating spaces such as homes/office buildings/malls/etc, geothermal systems are also used to heat swimming pools and to deice sidewalks and driveways.
Heat pumps use a vapor compression cycle to transport heat from one location to another. In heating mode, the cycle starts as the cold liquid refrigerant within the heat pump passes through a heat exchanger (evaporator) and absorbs heat from the fluid circulated through the earth connection. The refrigerant evaporates into a gas as heat is absorbed from the earth connection heat exchanger (evaporator). The gaseous refrigerant then passes through a compressor where it is pressurized, raising its temperature to over 180 degrees F. The hot gas then circulates through a refrigerant-to-air heat exchanger where the heat is removed and sent through the air ducts. When the refrigerant loses the heat, it changes back to a liquid. The liquid refrigerant cools as it passes through an expansion valve (pressure reducer) and the process begins again.
In cooling mode the process is partially reversed where the liquid cold refrigerant evaporates as it absorbs heat in the refrigerant-to-air heat exchanger from the warm air that is returned from the conditioned space. The gaseous refrigerant passes through the compressor to increase temperature for heating the domestic hot water. It then passes through the ground heat exchanger where it releases more of its heat to the ground loop and returns to liquid state again. Finally, the refrigerant is forced through the pressure reducer which results in a low-temperature, low-pressure liquid and the process begins again.
