Harness the Earth’s Energy With a Ground Source Heat Pump

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems use modern technologies to harness the stored energy of the greatest solar collector in existence: the earth.  Kevin J. Schumann of Comfort Central, Inc. in Pisgah Forest, NC is now accredited by the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) to HARNESS THE EARTH’S ENERGY FOR YOU.  Hard work and estensive preparation has allowed Schumann to give this community the opportunity to experience GSHP technology.

An IGSHPA-accredited installer is a benefit to the Pisgah Forest community because of his or her ability to offer the only qualified renewable energy system available today.  These systems are perfect for homes, apartment complexes, business, schools, and more.  In addition to heating and cooling, GSHP’s also create free hot water in the summer and deliver substantial hot water savings in the winter.

Installation trainees like Schumann learn about the design and installation of ground heat exchangers, which are the basis of the GSHP systems.  During the winter, water or anti-freeze solution is circulated through buried pipe, collecting heat from the earth and transporting it into the building.  During the summer, the system cools the building by reversing itself; collecting heat from the building and transporting it back into the earth.
