MAVERICK DRILLING is experienced in the installation of geothermal heat loops for geothermal heat pump systems. These systems operate with greater efficiency than oil or gas furnaces, and they can both heat and cool homes and buildings. The systems are designed to transfer heat by pumping water or a refrigerant through pipes that run underground, where the temperature is a constant 50 to 60°F.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT LOOPS (Closed Loop)
This system utilizes pipes containing an antifreeze type solution in a closed loop. Depending on the season and the difference in temperature between the atmosphere and underground, heat is either transferred into or removed from buildings. In winter, the solution is heated underground and transferred back into the building. In summer, the solution is cooled underground and extracts heat from the building.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT LOOPS (Open Loop)
This systems requires two water wells, one for supply, one for return. Water is pumped from the supply well and circulated through the heat pump to cool OR heat buildings. The same water is then pumped back to the same underground water supply via the return well.
