Geothermal Heat Pumps FYIs
Here is some straighforward information to help you decide which Carrier air conditioning solution is right for your home and budget. Here at Bovio, we have a lot of experience designing the perfect geothermal system for your home, so if you have any questions about this solution, we would be glad to help you out!
What is COP & EER?
The Coefficient Of Performance (COP) is based on the amount of power consumed by a system, compared to the power output of that system. The higher the COP, the more efficient the system.
Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) measures cooling efficiency and is calculated by dividing a product’s BTU output by the watts of power it uses. Rule of thumb―higher is better.
What is Open vs. Closed Loop?
An open loop system has an average water temperature of 52 degrees and uses the water well pump to deliver the water to the unit. A closed loop system averages 40 degrees in the winter, 70 degrees in the summer, and uses a small dedicated circulating pump. Factoring in these minor differences, the cost of operation is nearly the same.
