Geothermal Heat Pumps: The Wave of the Future?

Lakeville MN geothermal heat pumps are a hot topic (pun intended) these days. Every day, you hear more and more about geothermal heat pumps in the news. Even though a lot of people consider these the wave of the future here in Lakeville MN and beyond, geothermal heat pumps are not a new technology. The concept was first invented in 1852 by Lord Kelvin. In the 1940s, Robert C. Webber invented the full-size heat pump (almost accidentally!). Hartmann Well Drilling is an expert at installing geothermal heat pumps and can answer any questions you may have about having a geothermal heat pump installed at your Lakeville MN home or business.

In 1948, Carl Nielsen invented the first ground-source heat pump. He used it at his residence and then J.D. Krocker invented the first commercially-used groundwater heat pump. And then in the late 1970s, Dr. James Bose took this heat pump idea and used it to further the heat pump technology.

So, as you can see, the idea of a geothermal heat pump for your Lakeville MN home or business is not that new. However, thanks to advances in the technology and people’s desire to find efficient and Earth-friendly (but also low-cost) ways to heat and cool their Lakeville MN homes and/or businesses, geothermal heat pumps are really catching on these days! They might cost a bit more to install than another type of heating system, but the year-to-year savings are so extensive that geothermal heat pumps pay for themselves in almost no time at all. These systems do not require any crude oil and they are not harmful to the Lakeville MN environment either. So as oil gets more and more expensive and scarce, operating these geothermal heat pumps will not be affected and the cost will not increase.
