Using the Earth to Heat and Cool
A geothermal heat pump (GHP) taps into the renewable solar energy stored in the ground to provide savings up to 70% on bills. Using a series of underground pipes, it exchanges heat with the earth instead of outdoor air. While air temperatures can vary greatly from day to night or winter to summer, the temperature just a few feet below the earth’s surface stays an average 55°-70° F year-round.
Providing you with an unheard of efficiency of up to 400%, the 5 Series WaterFurnace geothermal system can deliver up to and astounding $4 of free earth energy for every $1 of electrical energy used. As a homeowner, consider more than just these savings, think of also the savings on annual maintenance costs and your payback. On average, the initial cost of the geothermal installation can be recovered within the first three to five years!
The best warranty in the industry:
The 10-year standard warranty comes standard with most WaterFurnace systems. This warranty covers the unit and provides you with a labour allowance. When the unforeseen happens, can your geothermal warranty actually pass the stress test? The WaterFurnace warranty is covered by the manufacturer, not by an equipment supplier, wholesaler, distributor or third-party administrator who may not be there when you need them. A properly audited warranty program ensures that even if the holder disappears your warranty is still around to work for you when you need it.
Increase the value of your home:
With a high-efficiency rating, the value of your home will go up. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are approximately 30 per cent more energy efficient than those built to minimum building code standards. The increased efficiency of these homes translates into reduced energy costs for homeowners.
Geothermal systems are recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as the most environmentally-friendly, cost effective and energy efficient heating and cooling technology available. These systems also minimize the threats of acid rain, air pollution, the greenhouse effect and global warming – problems directly linked to the burning of fossil fuels. In fact, installing a geothermal unit is the equivalent of planting 750 trees or removing two cars from the road.
The WaterFurnace reputation for reliability has been earned by using only the highest-quality components, design and workmanship. WaterFurnace has been making geothermal systems for close to 30 years!
One space-saving unit:
One compact WaterFurnace unit provides heating, central air conditioning and supplemental domestic hot water all in one packaged system. The Synergy3D system, for example, was engineered with leading edge components, and takes efficiency to new levels. Compared to ordinary furnaces and air conditioners, the Synergy3D can provide savings up to 60%. When coupled with today’s best thermostats and an integrated monitoring system, any WaterFurnace geothermal system will provide the finest in comfort and reliability in one convenient box.
When installed properly, the buried loop will last for generations. And because the WaterFurnace unit is housed indoors, it is protected from the harsh weather conditions, increasing the lifespan of the equipment.
WaterFurnace systems do not require noisy outdoor units that can disturb your peaceful surroundings or create unsightly additions to your home’s appearance. WaterFurnace has taken great steps in keeping your unit as quiet as possible.
Because natural gas, propane, or oil isn’t required to operate a WaterFurnace system, there’s no combustion, flames, or fumes and no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Large, high efficiency MERV 11 filters come standard with our units to provide exceptional indoor air quality and protect your family from dust and pollen. WaterFurnace units also circulate the air more often, further filtering the air.
