American Well & Pump provides geothermal heating and cooling services for both residential and commercial clients.
An open loop system extracts water from a supply well and is used for the purposes of heating and cooling. Once it has circulated through the system, the water returns to the ground through a recharge well (return well). Open loop system’s main advantage is temperature, but the disadvantage could be water quality.
Closed loop geothermal systems circulate a carrier fluid through pipes installed below the surface of the ground and deliver it up to the surface to supply cooling or heating capabilities. The main advantage of a closed loop system is no maintenance and is not affected by poor water quality.
In a standing column system, groundwater is pumped up through a central pipe. A submersible pump is installed which pulls the water from the bottom of the well.
