Geothermal heating systems have no need for water, you nitwit!! They cannot, by law, tap into an aquifier.
You stupid enough to believe there are aquifiers everywhete??
You're a stupid person. Even a cursory look would have better informed you.
And you claim to be a geologist!! I saw your earlier post where you said too many geothermal systems would heat the earth too much!!
That's like saying too many air conditioners in a neighborhood would raise the ambient temperature for the neighborhood!! Pure stupidity!!
""HOW A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM WORKS
Throughout the year, outdoor temperatures fluctuate with the changing seasons. However, about four to six feet below the Earth's surface, Wisconsin temperatures remain relatively moderate and consistent all year (about 50 degrees F, in WI). This is because the Earth absorbs 47% of all heat and energy from the sun that reaches the surface. A geothermal system circulates a water-based fluid through a buried loop system to take advantage of these consistent temperatures.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT CYCLE
During the heating process, fluid in the loop absorbs heat from the earth. It is transferred to the unit located in the home. The geothermal system distributes the warm, comfortable air by either a conventional duct system or radiant heat system.
The heat exchange is with the earth, nitwit!! If you have a pond on your property, the 'pond loop' system can be used, but is less efficient, as surface water temp. changes quickly.
Geothermal systems NEVER uses aquifiers, due to possible pollution from the anti freeze or other chemicals in the geothermal loop.
You are the biggest idiot on this thread.
You have to be the most ignorant person ever on this board.
Beneath the surface there are aquifers. It is the aquifers that transport the heat from immediately beneath the facility to a location where the heat can be dissapated.
Otherwise, you goddam idiot, the heat would just rise right back into the goddam building that just pumped it away.
You haven't got a clue what you're talking about.
