Geothermal Heatpump Demo

Just like any refrigeration system there are a few key components to geothermal heat pumps.  These include the compressor, evaporator, condenser, and expansion device.   Some differences include an earth loop heat exchanger and the desuperheater loop.  The desuperheater is common on many of today's geothermal heatpumps.  It allows you to circulate domestic hotwater to the compressor to pick up some extra heat from the system to save on your hotwater bill.
