A Geothermal system makes use of the largest source of energy available - the ground beneath your feet.
Rapid Cool Mechanical is your local Kamloops Geothermal experts. When it comes to keeping your system running and efficient, we have you covered.
Geothermal systems are highly efficient.
The only outside energy required is for components of the geothermal unit. Half of the energy from the sun that hits the earth every day is absorbed by the ground. The result is that the ground remains at a constant temperature of between 10 and 15 Degrees C all year round at a depth of six feet below the surface.
A Geothermal system is able to capture this energy and put it to use.
A geothermal system consists of a geothermal unit, generally located in the basement of a house, which is connected to a Ground Loop that is buried in the earth. Water circulating through the loop pipe absorbs the heat from the ground and takes it back into the house.
The geothermal unit transfers the heat to air that is drawn through the unit and blows the warm air around the house using standard air ducts. Alternatively, the heat is distributed through pipes containing water for in-floor heating. In the summer, the process reverses. Heat is taken from the air in the house and put in the ground, which is now cooler than the air.
The incredible efficiency of geothermal energy means that NextEnergy systems are highly cost-effective. Any home converted to a NextEnergy system from oil or electric resistance will cut about 70% off its yearly heating and cooling costs.
If propane heating is replaced with a NextEnergy system, the savings are even better, at approximately 80%. No other method of heating and cooling can match geothermal when it comes to reducing your sky-high heating and cooling bills. And over the long term, the savings only get better. NextEnergy lets you invest in a system that pays you to own it!

Geothermal Comfort Systems
Bryant, like us here at Rapid Cool, cares deeply about the environment and the impact that heating our homes has on it. That’s why Bryant developed their Geothermal Comfort Series. These systems tap into the energy that is stored into the ground — called geothermal energy — from the sun. This energy is converted into heat and used in the winter. It can also work in reverse and actually cool your home by taking heat from it and dumping it back into the earth.
This geothermal system is energy-efficient and also environmentally friendly. It works by burying pipes in the ground around your house, and the geothermal pipes moves heat either to or from the ground. It works quietly, so you don’t have to listen to any sort of buzzing or ringing.
Another wonderful thing about geothermal heating is the cost: it’s much lower than common utility costs. As Bryant puts it: “For every one unit of energy purchased to operate a geothermal unit, it delivers four to five units of energy because the energy from the earth is free” (Bryant Geothermal Comfort Pamphlet, page 2).
