Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Rochester Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Rochester, IN, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Rochester 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. One advantage, according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), of geothermal heating and cooling is that it's the most energy-efficient option available. The experts at WaterFurnace International, Inc., the leading manufacturer of geothermal heating and cooling products, add that a Rochester geothermal system relies on the most plentiful source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Rochester, IN, area. 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 removes noise pollution as well; operating at a sound level resembling a refrigerator. 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. The fundamental premise of a Rochester geothermal system is to pull the free energy stored by the earth when the sun shines on it, and delivering via a series of pipes, called an earth loop, to your home. This eliminates hot and cold spots as it evenly warms or cools your home. In heating mode, our environmental-friendly coolant flows through the pipe transferring heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of your home. Providing warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. A Rochester geothermal system also addresses pollutants in the air. According to EPA tests, levels of pollutants are 2-5 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. On the market today are numerous devices used to decrease the health risks associated with poor IAQ. Improve the air in your home with these WaterFurnace products designed to work with their Rochester geothermal system.
