A Fort Wayne geothermal system captures the free energy from the earth by using a series of pipes, called an earth loop, buried in the ground. During the heating mode, a special fluid circulates through the pipe where heat energy is transferred from the ground (the heat source) to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit located in the home, furnishing warm comfort. Inside the home, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. A Fort Wayne geothermal system also addresses pollutants in the air.
