Why Geothermal?

Lower operating costs:

Operates more efficiently than ordinary heating and air conditioning systems, saving up to 60 percent in most cases.

Safe and clean:

No flame, no flue, no odors and no danger of fire or carbon monoxide.  High efficiency air cleaners remove dust and pollens to improve indoor air quality.

Quiet operation:

A super-efficient compressor and soft-start, variable-speed fan make the E Series so quiet that many people find themselves checking to make sure the system is actually on.

Comfortable:

Provides precise distribution of warm air in winter.  Gone are the uneven temperatures experienced with ordinary furnaces.  In summer you get central air conditioning with better humidification.

Flexible:

Heating, central air conditioning and domestic hot water.  Three systems - all from the same compact unit.

Environmentally friendly:

The system emits no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gasses, which are considered to be major contributors to environmental air pollution.

Reliable:

Microprocessor controls and state-of-the-art components allow smooth operation and years of virtually maintenance-free service.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: How does a geothermal system work?

 A: Outdoor temperatures fluctuate with the seasons.  However, underground temperatures do not.  About four to six feet below the earth's surface, temperatures remain relatively moderate and constant year-round.  Geothermal systems utilize these constant temperatures.  In winter, fluid circulating through the system's earth loop absorbs stored heat and carries it to the home.  The indoor unit compresses the heat to a higher temperature and distributes it throughout the home.  In summer, the system reverses pulling heat from the home, depositing it in the cooler earth.

Q: Why is geothermal better?

A:  Geothermal systems use the energy from the sun, which is stored in the earth, to heat and cool homes.  Typically, electric power is used only to operate the unit's fan, compressor and pump.  These systems simply transfer heat to and from the earth.

Q: How efficient is geothermal?

A: A geothermal system is more than three times as efficient as the most efficient ordinary system.  Because geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels to make heat, they provide three to four units of energy for every one unit used to power the system.

Q: Does geothermal help nature?

A: Because geothermal systems work with nature, not against it, they minimize the threats of acid rain, air pollution and the greenhouse effect.  An environmentally friendly fluid is used in the closed loop.
