The Safety of Refrigerant in DX Geothermal Systems

| November 15, 2023

When it comes to geothermal systems, safety is paramount. We understand the importance of both environmental and human well-being, which is why we use refrigerant in our Waterless® Geothermal systems. Let’s explore why refrigerant is the ideal choice for a safe and efficient geothermal loop fluid.


Efficient Cooling with Environmental Responsibility

Refrigerant is used in many aspects of our lives because of it’s exceptional heat exchange rates, efficiently transferring heat and providing comfort to countless homes and businesses, like grocery stores. In fact, refrigerant can move nearly 10 times more heat than water. Refrigerant can ensure your space stays comfortable and at the perfect temperature year-round much more efficiently than water.


Environmentally Friendly Choice

One of the most significant advantages of the newer refrigerants used today are their environmental friendliness. They don’t contribute to ozone depletion, and are more environmentally friendly than ever before, making them a responsible choice for those who care about the planet. As we strive to reduce our carbon footprint, today’s newer refrigerants align with our commitment to a greener future.


Safety is Non-Negotiable

We prioritize safety above all else. The refrigerant used in Waterless® Geothermal is non-toxic, meaning it poses no threat to human health. You can breathe easy knowing that your geothermal system relies on a refrigerant that prioritizes your well-being. Refrigerant is so safe we use it in every refrigerator, freezer, ice machine, car, and heating and cooling system manufactured today.


Guarding Against Groundwater Contamination

In the past, concerns lingered about refrigerants potentially contaminating groundwater. However, this had to do with misunderstanding of the chemical properties. Refrigerant doesn’t break down into harmful substances that could negatively impact or leach into the ground. You can trust that the refrigerant circulating through your geothermal system is safe for both your family and the environment.


At Waterless® Geothermal, we’re not only dedicated to providing you with exceptional heating and cooling solutions but also ensuring your peace of mind. With the use of refrigerant and our state-of-the-art technology, you can enjoy more benefits of geothermal with confidence, and know that safety and sustainability are at the forefront of our mission.
