Geothermal A/C Overview

Geothermal A/C Overview

Upgrades are coming to the geothermal A/C systems at Fort Polk. These upgrades will dramatically improve the quality of life for our residents and also improve the energy resilience of the housing program. We have partnered with Ameresco, a leading provider of comprehensive energy services and infrastructure, to deliver these upgrades and perform the construction-related work.

The homes that will benefit from this maintenance program currently have an older geothermal A/C system. A properly sized Geothermal A/C system provides an energy efficient way of delivering heating and cooling in a home. The graphic below demonstrates how a geothermal A/C system works.

The video below will provide an overview of what a geothermal heat pump system is, how it works, and the benefits of utilizing a geothermal system.
