Indoor Comfort, Down to Earth Savings with Kansas City Geothermal Heating

Homeowners across Kansas City, Missouri, have discovered the benefits of using the energy source in their own backyards to provide heating, cooling and hot water. Kansas City 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.

Consider that according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), they list Kansas City 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 depends on the most ample source of renewable energy that is available to almost all Kansas City, Missouri, residents.

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 Kansas City 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 transporting heat from the ground to the fluid and then to the geothermal unit inside of the home. Supplying warm comfort and improved indoor air quality, the heat is distributed through either a conventional duct system or a hydronic radiant heat system.

Levels of indoor air pollutants are two to five times higher than those outside, according to EPA tests. A Kansas City 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.

On the market today are numerous devices used to lessen the health risks associated with poor IAQ. Improve the air in your home with these WaterFurnace products designed to work with their Kansas City geothermal system. HEPA filters, heat recovery ventilators, electronic air cleaners are among the devices and technologies that will contribute to good IAQ throughout your home.
