Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Beckley Geothermal Heating Homeowners across Beckley, WV, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Beckley 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 Beckley geothermal system is dependent on the most plentiful source of renewable energy and a source that is available virtually anywhere in the Beckley, WV, 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 similar to that of 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. The basic premise of a Beckley 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 circulates through the pipe transporting heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of your home. Furnishing warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system. A Beckley 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. 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 Beckley geothermal system and contribute to good IAQ throughout the home.
