We all know that Columbus, Ohio homes are subjected to varying temperatures throughout the year. Some climates can see the extremes summer and winter can throw at us. There is a consistent source of temperature that you can put to good use; just a few feet below the surface. How is that possible?
The sun infuses the Earth's crust with its heat energy. Forty-seven percent of that energy is stored in the ground as heat. WaterFurnace geothermal systems tap this heating potential using an earth loop system; harvesting this free heat for your home. This innovative technology uses the sun's heat the earth has conveniently stored to condition your home or office.
Utilizing the earth loop, a WaterFurnace geothermal heat pump extracts the heat from the ground in the heating cycle. The geothermal system pulls the heat from the loops and delivers this warmed air through a conventional duct system. Additional options include using that same heat to provide hot water and radiant floor heating are available.
Conditioning air is just the reverse process used in the heating cycle. Warm air is pushed by the geothermal heat pump into the ground. By removing the warm air all that is left is cool air circulating throughout your home. Heating your water during this process is "free".
