Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Van Buren Geothermal Heating A source of consistent, metered flow of conditioned air is already being tapped by many homeowners all across Van Buren, AR, 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 Van Buren 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 plentiful source of renewable energy that is available to almost all Van Buren, AR, residents. The result is a system that achieves Earth-friendly status in more ways than one: homeowners can diminish 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 eliminates noise pollution, with a sound level like a refrigerator. A Van Buren 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, supplying 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 2-5 times higher than those outside, according to EPA tests. A Van Buren 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. A variety of devices can be used to diminish 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 Van Buren geothermal system and contribute to good IAQ throughout the home.
