Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Central Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Central , OH, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Central geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the constant temperature found a few feet below the surface of the earth, to deliver a consistent, even flow of conditioned air throughout the home, eliminating hot and cold spots. One benefit, according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), of geothermal heating and cooling is that it's the most energy-efficient option available. The experts at WaterFurnace International, Inc., the leading manufacturer of geothermal heating and cooling products, add that a Central geothermal system depends on the most ample source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Central , OH, area. The result is a system that achieves green status in more ways than one: homeowners can decrease both their carbon footprint and their utility bills. In fact, the geothermal energy savings provided by a WaterFurnace geothermal system can be as much as 70 percent compared with a conventional system (natural gas, oil, electricity, or propane fuel). Additionally, the system removes noise pollution, with a sound level along the same lines a refrigerator. The underlying premise of a Central geothermal system is to pull the free energy stored by the earth when the sun shines on it, and delivering via a series of pipes, called an earth loop, to your home. This eliminates hot and cold spots as it evenly warms or cools your home. In heating mode, our environmental-friendly coolant circulates through the pipe transferring heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of the home. Furnishing warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. Levels of indoor air pollutants are 2-5 times greater than those outside, according to EPA tests. A Central geothermal system confronts this concern as research shows that exposure to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can lead to a variety of health problems such as, asthma, dizziness, fatigue and respiratory diseases. A variety of devices can be used to decrease the health risks associated with poor IAQ and improve the air in your home. The WaterFurnace product offering includes HEPA filter technology, heat recovery ventilators, electronic air cleaners and a selection of filters, all designed to work with a Central geothermal system and contribute to good IAQ throughout the home. See the WaterFurnace website for a listing of products to help improve your home’s air quality.
