Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with West Chester Geothermal Heating

Homeowners across West Chester, PA, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. West Chester 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.

Consider that according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), they list West Chester geothermal heating and cooling as the most energy-efficient option on the market today. Experts from WaterFurnace International, Inc., leading manufacturer of geothermal heating and cooling products, list another benefit. It is reliant on the most plentiful source of renewable energy that is available to almost all West Chester, PA, residents.

The result is a system that achieves Earth-friendly status in more ways than one: homeowners can lessen 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 eliminates noise pollution, with a sound level similar to that of a refrigerator.

The underlying premise of a West Chester 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 flows through the pipe removing heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of the home. Providing warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system.

A West Chester geothermal system also addresses pollutants in the air. According to EPA tests, levels of pollutants are 2-5 times greater indoors than outside. Research also shows that exposure to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause health problems including, asthma, dizziness, fatigue and respiratory diseases, among many others.

On the market today are numerous devices used to decrease the health risks associated with poor IAQ. Improve the air in your home with these WaterFurnace products designed to work with their West Chester geothermal system. HEPA filters, heat recovery ventilators, electronic air cleaners are among the devices and technologies that will contribute to good IAQ throughout your home.
