Geothermal heating

Geothermy is a process that captures the heat stored underground and transforms it into an energy source for heating or air conditioning using an underground system of pipes (geothermal wells). In the winter, heat is drawn from the ground and transferred to the building, and in the summer, heat is extracted from the building and returned to the earth. This is one of the most environmentally friendly solutions since it uses the earth’s clean and renewable energy.

Components of a geothermal heating system

There are three components in a geothermal system:

  1. The heat pump that transfers heat from the underground piping to the building.
  2. Underground piping through which liquid circulates and heats or cools, depending on the season.
  3. A distribution system that ensures hot or cold air is circulated through the building.

The benefits of geothermal heating

Energy savings

Although the cost of installing geothermal heating may seem high, it’s an excellent investment since the system will allow for substantial energy savings later on. According to Hydro-Québec, a geothermal system can cut heating costs by up to 60% compared to a conventional electric heating system.

Environmentally conscious

Geothermal heating uses clean energy and therefore emits no greenhouse gases that pollute the environment. 


Geothermal heating is a sustainable solution. The system’s underground piping has a service life of over 50 years and the heat pump has a service life of approximately 20 years.
