If a furnace is placed outside of the space it is servicing, it is typically heating a store of water, and then is called a boiler. The water is pumped to radiators or fan coils throughout the building, H e a t Tr a n s f e r a n d H VA C B a s i c s providing heat as needed. This is called a hydronic system, regardless of the fuel. Electric Resistance Heating You may have lived in, or visited, a place with electric heat, also known as electric resistance heating. Electric heat can supply a centralized forcedair system, although this is less efficient than burning a fuel on-site, so this option often doesn’t make sense.
Bose, geothermal heating and cooling entered the modern age and has been growing by leaps and bounds ever since. What Is Geothermal? The word geothermal has two parts: geo, meaning earth, and thermal, meaning heat. Thus, geothermal concerns using heat from the Earth. However, there are a few different applications of geothermal technology. The heat of the Earth can be used to generate electricity, which is typically done on the scale of power plants (Fig. 1-4). When water is FIGURE 1-4 Costa Rica, which has several active volcanoes, gets part of its electricity from geothermal power stations like this one.
Sarah Cheney/Egg Systems) You can see in Fig. 2-7 that at about 26 feet deep, the temperature of the ground is nearly completely stable, while at 6 feet, the temperature varies a few degrees seasonally. Temperatures truly start to normalize at about 12 feet deep. If you look at the map in Fig. 2-8, you will see the range of temperatures in different regions of the United States. You will notice that the temperatures range from a low of about 37°F to a maximum of 72°F. Notice how mild this temperature range is, and this is roughly the same range from the extremes of Northern Canada to Central America.
