Installing geothermal systems is a highly specialised field and requires a lot of design, engineering and knowledge to successfully install. At iEnergi we have travelled all over Australia, Europe and America to gain the required knowledge to not only install geothermal systems but to be experts in this field. Accreditations we currently hold are:
- Stiebel Eltron Certified Installers
- International Ground Source Heatpump Association(IGSPHA) approved installers
- Waterfurnace USA certified ground loop installers
Geothermal heat pumps, otherwise known as ground source heat pumps, utilise energy harvested from the ground to efficiently provide hydronic heating, cooling and hot water. Geothermal hydronic heat pumps are a very efficient and environmentally sustainable way of providing warmth for your home, even on the coldest of winter days and hottest summer days. Geothermal heat pumps achieve high coefficient of performance due to the stable temperature of the Earth’s surface and are not susceptible to the cold winter spells and harsh summer heat Fossil fuels are rightfully on the decline in the electricity market – not only are they becoming scarcer, they are harmful to our environment. Renewable energies are quickly becoming the norm for our energy supply. Nearly 80% of the energy consumed in the home is for heating and hot water, so it makes sense to focus on generating green power for hydronic heating systems.
Stiebel Eltron Geothermal
Stiebel Eltron offer an impressive range of highly efficient German engineered water to water ground source heatpumps. With water to water heatpumps, water is distributed through the ground via vertical boreholes or horizontal groundloops. This water picks up heat in the ground which is then passed through a heat exchanger into the heatpump, and from the heatpump into the water system serving your hydronic heating and cooling.
This type of system generally comprises a ground loop, heatpump, buffer tank and hot water tank. This forms the basis for your water to water heatpump systems. From there, hydronic heating, pool heating and fancoil cooling can be added to the system.
