A Heat Pump system for all year
Ecoforest geothermal heat pumps provide a comprehensive HVAC system; that is, heating in winter, cooling in summer and hot water all year round.
This is one of the most important features of our heat pumps, and certainly a revolution in the field of climate-control.
With Ecoforest’s heat pump technology, you will no longer need to invest in additional air conditioning to enjoy a pleasant ambient temperature during the warmer months.
Changing from a hot environment to a cool one is as simple as pressing a button.
Additionally, all the hot water you need will be available all year round.
During the winter, the ground temperature is greater than ambient temperature, so the pump draws heat from it and releases it inside of your home.
In summer the opposite occurs, the ground is cooler than the air, so the geothermal pump extracts heat from the house and yields it to the ground, in exactly the same way it does to keep the inside of a refrigerator cooler than the outside temperature.
You can choose between two methods of cooling:
For very warm areas that require greater cooling, the heat pump compressor starts and the direction of flow of the refrigerant in the refrigerant circuit is reversed, so the geothermal heat pump becomes an efficient air conditioning system for your home.
The efficiency of geothermal heat pump in the active cooling mode is much higher than in traditional air conditioning systems.
If you live in a temperate zone where excessively high temperatures do not occur during the warmer months, passive cooling is your best choice. Here Ecoforest geothermal pumps are equipped with an additional heat exchanger in which the ground-cooled glycol from the extraction system cools the water in the radiator system. On flowing through the underfloor radiation or fan-coils, the cool water produces the desired temperature drop inside the home, and uses less energy than a pair of light bulbs to do so.
