The weather becomes more and more
chilli as autumn is closing in. After
walking the dog or attending outdoor
sports, it is pleasant to arrive to the heated home
and warm up – except if the heating is outworn.
It is rather unpleasant to wake up in the cold, go
to sleep in the cold and arrive home in the cold.
There is no other solution: the outworn heating
must be changed. But changed to what?
Traditional, gas or electric heating and cooling
systems are not only unnecessary costly, but
malfunctioning regularly. The lifespan of those
is no longer than eight to ten years. The solar
power, further from the equator, can only serve
as a supplement for the regular heating and
cooling systems, moreover, the enormous solar
cells on the rooftop and ruin the aesthetics of a
mansion. However, such a technology exists that
has a lifespan above fi fty hears, requires no visible
transformations of a home and is environmentally
conscious – the geothermal energy.
The Queen of England had the heating and
cooling system of her Art Gallery changed to
geothermal in 2002. She enjoyed it so much
that she had the heating and cooling system of
the Buckingham Palace changed to geothermal
soon after. Since, the popularity of geothermic
energy has been increasing at a quick pace, as
it is rather suitable to supply high performing,
Increasing technological development delivered
Multifunctional Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Systems, that provides heating, cooling, and
warm water altogether. This technology makes
the heating of both indoor and outdoor pools
But how does geothermal heating work?
At the time of winter, the temperature of the air
inside the mansion decreases even half a degree,
while the temperature of the water running in
the pipes decreases consequently. This water
arrives in the deeper layers of the Earth’s crust
through the inbuilt pipes, where constant torrid
temperature is maintained by the natural
radioactive decay and the residual heat from
the forming of Earth. The water, heated there,
streams back into the mansion through the pipes,
supporting the maintenance of the desired
At the time of summer, the same happens like
wintertime, just as the temperature of the air
moderately increases, the temperature of the
water running in the pipes consequently increases.
Herewith the water does not stream to
the torrid layers but to the upper, cool layers.
After cooling down, it streams back to the
mansion, causing the decreasing of the inner
Geothermal heating and cooling systems are
ideal for all of those who fi nd it important to
have their desired temperature constantly retained
in their home, and for their heating and
cooling system to be easily maintainable. Nothing
more is needed but a reliable company,
and the comfort of the Buckingham Palace can
be enjoyed at home.
