Geothermal energy is the earth’s natural heat which radiates from the planet’s core.
It is a type of renewable, sustainable and unlimited energy.

One of the main benefits of using this energy is that the ground temperature remains constant throughout the year once a certain depth is reached where external meteorological conditions have no influence. This helps to reduce household energy consumption due to the fact that there is less demand, starting with a fixed temperature from which to heat or cool the areas that need it.

The geothermal HVAC system is based on a series of boreholes in which a thermal exchange takes place between the ground and a geothermal heat pump.

Significant energy savings (and the associated financial costs) make the system a profitable one as savings are made both in heating (up to 70%) and air conditioning costs (up to 50%).

A total of 10 boreholes have been made at Torres Anyó reaching a depth of 110 metres.
