Earth’s internal energy, also often called thermodynamic energy is the energy that determines the temperature underground. Geothermal energy is the heat generated and stored in the earth. All areas of the United States have nearly constant shallow-ground temperatures, which are suitable for geothermal heat pumps and Tennessee is no exception.
The difference in temperature between the core of the planet and its surface drives a continuous flow of thermal energy in the form of heat from the core to the surface. When heat conducts from the core to surrounding rock it can be used to heat and cool homes and buildings in cost effective, reliable and sustainable ways.
Technological advances have dramatically expanded the range of usable resources, especially for home heating products, in environmentally friendly applications.
Geothermal energy advantages have the potential to help mitigate global warming if widely deployed in place of fossil fuels. Resources are more than adequate to supply heating and cooling needs through a geothermal heat pump.
Your home or business can use the Earth as a heat source when operating in winter, or a heat sink when operating in summer. Renewable energy from your backyard can provide savings up to 70% on heating, cooling and hot water.
