Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Your own backyard has the potential to be your source of heating and cooling comfort. Now you can get safe, reliable, energy efficient heating and cooling from one piece of equipment. Geothermal energy represents the leading edge of heating and cooling technology. It moves heat energy to and from the earth to heat and cool your indoor environment. And compared to ordinary systems, geothermal technology can save you 30% to 60% on your monthly energy bills. Geothermal is the safest, cleanest, most reliable space conditioning system you can buy.

Four Basic Types of Geothermal Energy Sources

Horizontal Loops

Horizontal Loops

These are often considered when adequate land surface is available. Pipes are placed in trenches that range in length from 100 to 400 feet. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Vertical Loops

Vertical Loops

These are the ideal choice when available land surface is limited. Drilling equipment is used to bore small-diameter holes from 75 to 300 feet deep. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Pool (Lake) Loops

Poll (Lake) Loops

These are very economical to install when a body of water is available, because excavation costs are virtually eliminated. Coils of pipe are simply placed on the bottom of the pond or lake. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Open Loops

Open Loops

These use groundwater as a direct energy source. In ideal conditions, an open-loop application can be the most economical type of geothermal system. Click on the loop diagram to see it enlarged.

Key Benefits of a Geothermal Technology

  • Low Operating Costs

    The WaterFurnace system operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air conditioning systems-30% to 60% in most cases.

  • Comfortable

    Because the unit uses the relatively stable temperature of the earth as an energy source, you are assured of constant, even winter heating and better humidity control in the summer.

  • Safe & Clean

    No flame, no flue, no odors, just safe reliable operation year after year.

  • Flexibility

    The unit provides heating, central air conditioning and hot water all from the same compact unit.

  • Economical Water Heating

    Water heating can be a significant energy expense. WaterFurnace units can reduce the high cost of water heating by as much as 66%.

  • Attractive

    The completely self contained indoor unit needs no noisy, unsightly outside condensing unit.

  • Environment

    The system emits no carbon dioxide, which is considered a major contributor to environmental air pollution.

  • WorryFree® warranties

    In the unlikely event of a service problem, WaterFurnace systems are covered by the best warranty in the industry.
