Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Green Bay Geothermal Heating

A source of consistent, metered flow of conditioned air is already being tapped by many homeowners all across Green Bay, WI, area. Geothermal heating and cooling is provided by the constant temperature found in their own backyards; just a few feet under the surface of the earth. The benefits of using this "down to earth" method for heating, cooling and hot water are many.

Consider that according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), they list Green Bay geothermal heating and cooling as the most energy-efficient option on the market today. Experts from WaterFurnace International, Inc., leading manufacturer of geothermal heating and cooling products, list another advantage. It is reliant on the most abundant source of renewable energy that is available to almost all Green Bay, WI, residents.

The result is a system that achieves green status in more ways than one: homeowners can lessen both their carbon footprint and their utility bills. In fact, the geothermal energy savings provided by a WaterFurnace geothermal system can be as much as 70 percent compared with a conventional system (natural gas, oil, electricity, or propane fuel). Additionally, the system removes noise pollution, with a sound level resembling a refrigerator.

A Green Bay 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 your home, furnishing warm comfort. Inside the home, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system.

A Green Bay geothermal system also addresses pollutants in the air. According to EPA tests, levels of pollutants are two to five times greater indoors than outside. Research also shows that exposure to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause health problems including, asthma, dizziness, fatigue and respiratory diseases, among many others.

A variety of devices can be used to lessen 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 Green Bay geothermal system and contribute to good IAQ throughout the home.
