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.

One advantage, 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 Utah geothermal system is reliant on the most abundant source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Utah, UT, area.

A WaterFurnace geothermal system can achieve as much as 70% energy savings when compared to conventional systems like natural gas, electric or gas fuelled. The system removes noise pollution as well; operating at a sound level along the same lines a refrigerator. The result is a heating and cooling system that surpasses the efficiency of conventional systems while reducing your carbon footprint and your utility bills at the same time.

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.

Levels of indoor air pollutants are 2-5 times higher than those outside, according to EPA tests. A Utah 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 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.
