Homeowners across Idaho Falls, ID, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Idaho Falls 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 Idaho Falls geothermal heating and cooling as the most energy-efficient option on the market today. Experts from WaterFurnace International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of geothermal heating and cooling products, list another advantage. It relies on the most plentiful source of renewable energy that is available to almost all Idaho Falls, ID, residents.
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 eliminates noise pollution as well; operating at a sound level along the same lines a refrigerator would make. 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.
An Idaho Falls geothermal system captures the free energy from the earth by using a series of pipes, called an earth loop, buried in the ground. During the heating mode, a special fluid flows through the pipe where heat energy is transferred from the ground (the heat source) to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit located in the home, providing warm comfort. Inside the home, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system.
Levels of indoor air pollutants are two to five times higher than those outside, according to EPA tests. An Idaho Falls 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.
On the market today are numerous devices used to lessen the health risks associated with poor IAQ. Improve the air in your home with these WaterFurnace products designed to work with their Idaho Falls 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.
