Exploring Geothermal Energy in Pittsburgh, PA

Pittsburgh, PA is a historical city which has always been on the cutting edge of energy related endeavors.  For instance, Pittsburgh was home to the very first gas station, and was even the site for the very first long distance transmission of electricity.  So is it really a surprise that Pittsburgh is also among the first cities to put geothermal energy to use in their homes?

What is geothermal energy?

Geothermal energy is a completely natural and renewable energy source which is created by the absorption of the sun's rays by the earth.  This absorption has created a naturally consistent temperature which occurs just below the earth's surface.  This natural occurrence is known as thermal energy, and can be tapped into in order to heat and cool your home.

How does a geothermal heating and cooling system work?

Geothermal heating works by pumping warm air from a few feet beneath your home, and circulating that warm air through your existing air ducts.  Since this air is much warmer than the air above the surface, a geothermal heating system does not require the burning of fossil fuels in order to heat the air prior to circulating it throughout your house. 

Geothermal cooling works by reversing the process of geothermal heating.  Instead of pulling warm air from the ground, the hot air inside your house is pumped out through your air ducts and put back in the ground.  The geothermal cooling process also allows you to use hot air from your home to fuel your hot water tank during the summer months.
