HOW IT WORKSwaterfurnace2

A new Geothermal system makes use of the largest source of energy available – the ground beneath your feet. Half of the energy from the sun that hits the earth everyday is absorbed by the ground. The result is that the ground remains at a constant temperature of between 10° and 15°C all year round, at a depth of six feet below the surface.

A geothermal system consists of a GEOTHERMAL UNIT, generally located in the basement of a house, which is connected to a GROUND LOOP that is buried in the earth. Water circulating through the loop absorbs the heat from the ground and takes it back into the house. The geothermal unit transfers the heat to air that is drawn through the unit and blows the warm air around the house using a standard duct system. The heat is also used to provide the homeowner with domestic hot water. Another option is to distribute the heat through

 

pipes containing water for infloor heating. In the summer, the process reverses, heat is taken from the air in the house and put in the ground, which is now cooler than the air.

Geothermal systems are highly efficient. The only outside energy required is for components of the geothermal unit.

GREAT SAVING$

For over 30 years, families have enjoyed the savings and comfort of geothermal home energy systems. With over one million systems installed worldwide, geothermal energy is quickly becoming the number one choice for discerning families. The energy you need to heat and cool your home is right under your feet. We can help you tap into it.

The incredible efficiency of geothermal technology means that Geothermal systems are highly cost-effective. An average-sized home converted to a Geothermal system from oil or electric resistance will cut about 70% off its yearly heating and cooling costs. If propane heating is replaced with a Geothermal system, the savings are even better, at approximately 80%. No other method of heating and cooling can match geothermal when it comes to reducing your sky-high heating and cooling bills. And over the long term, the savings only get better.

LIVING IN COMFORT

The most common response we get from our customers on quality of their Geothermal system is that it feels ‘more comfortable’ than a traditional system.

Since Geothermal systems do not rely on combustion for heat, they maintain indoor temperatures much more precisely than traditional systems. You will avoid uneven hot or cold spots in your home, sudden blasts of heat and unpleasant dryness. During the summer, you will stay cool without a noisy outdoor air conditioner.

Geothermal systems have no flame, no flue, and no exposed coils. They are completely safe. And with expected life spans of 20 to 30 years, they are designed with long-term reliability and service in mind.

Geothermal systems are also totally non-pollution. A geothermal system installed in an average-sized home to replace a traditional energy source reduces fossil fuel emissions by the equivalent of taking two cars off the road, or planting an acre of trees.
