Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Oswego Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Oswego, NY, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Oswego 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 benefit, 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 Oswego geothermal system is dependent on the most abundant source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Oswego, NY, 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 like 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. A Oswego 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. A Oswego geothermal system also addresses pollutants in the air. According to EPA tests, levels of pollutants are two to five times higher 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 reduce 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 Oswego geothermal system and contribute to good IAQ throughout the home. See the WaterFurnace website for a listing of products to help improve your home’s air quality.
