Now that you are informed on how geothermal works in Idaho Falls with the first part of our series, it’s time to take a look at the pump and how it produces the heat for your home or business. This article will cover the inner workings of a geothermal heat pump, and hopefully, shed some light on the energy savings that are waiting for you beneath your feet.

There are two main parts to a geothermal heat pump that work hand in hand to heat and cool your building: the condenser and the evaporator coil. The condenser will take out the existing heat that is stored in the ground, while the evaporator coil will work with the heat inside the home. Thus, the heat pump works by transmitting heat from one part to another depending on whether you need heating or cooling.

All of our geothermal heat pumps are designed to maximize your heating and cooling efficiencies.
