Automatic Air is proud to be a Louisville WaterFurnace dealer
Reduce your carbon footprint and utility bills at the same time. WaterFurnace geothermal systems use the free, renewable energy found in your own back yard to save up to 70% on heating, cooling, and hot water costs.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling
In Louisville the temperature throughout the year varies and is unpredictable. What many people don’t realize is that the temperature underground remains fairly consistent year round.
The ground is able to maintain a higher rate of temperature consistency because it absorbs 47% of the suns energy. WaterFurnace geothermal systems are able to tap into this free energy with an earth loop. This technology is then used to provide your home or business with energy efficient heating and cooling.
During the heating cycle, a WaterFurnace geothermal heat pump uses the earth loop to extract heat from the ground. As the system pulls heat from the loop it distributes it through a conventional duct system as warm air. The same heat energy can also be used for floor heating systems or for domestic hot water heating systems.
When in the cooling mode, the heating process is reversed thus creating cool air throughout the home. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, heat is extracted from the air in your home and either moved back into the earth loop, or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank.
Geothermal vs. Geoexchange: what’s in a name?
Geothermal energy has been used to heat and aircondition buildings for several decades, and during that time these geothermal systems have been called many different things. Some of the more popular variations include geo-thermal, geoexchange, ground-water, ground-water assisted, ground-water-source, water-to-water, and water furnace heating and cooling. No matter what you call it, it is one of the most energy efficient ways to heat and cool your home.
