Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Central New Jersey Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Central New Jersey, NJ, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Central New Jersey 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 Central New Jersey geothermal system depends on the most plentiful source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Central New Jersey, NJ, area. The result is a system that achieves Earth-friendly status in more ways than one: homeowners can reduce 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 similar to that of a refrigerator. A Central New Jersey 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 circulates 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 the home, providing warm comfort. Inside the home, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. A Central New Jersey 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 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 Central New Jersey 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.
