Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Utah Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Utah, UT, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Utah 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 Utah 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 abundant source of renewable energy that is available to almost all Utah, UT, residents. The result is a system that achieves green status in more ways than one: homeowners can reduce 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 like a refrigerator. The basic premise of a Utah 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 removes hot and cold spots as it evenly warms or cools your home. In heating mode, our environmental-friendly coolant flows through the pipe carrying heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of the home. Supplying warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. A Utah 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. 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 Utah 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.
