What are the benefits of a geothermal system?  
ENERGY EFFICIENT: WaterFurnace Envision systems are rated number one in energy efficiency because they can deliver an astounding five units of energy for every unit of electrical energy used. Compare that to even the best ordinary system that delivers less than one unit of energy for every unit it consumes. That translates into an efficiency rating of 500 percent, compared to the most efficient gas furnace, which rates only 94 percent
COST EFFECTIVE: Because of the extraordinary efficiency of a Water Furnace system, any added investment related to installing a geothermal unit is usually more than offset by your energy savings. In new homes, most homeowners will experience an immediate positive return on their investment when the system cost is added to the mortgage. In replacement installations, homeowners find that any added investment over the cost of an ordinary system is generally recovered in energy savings within a few years.
COMFORTABLE: Capturing the relatively stable temperature of the Earth to heat and cool your home, these systems provide consistent, comfortable heating and cooling. You can even regulate temperatures in different areas of your home with an optional zone control system
RELIABLE: The Water Furnace reputation for reliability has been earned by using only the highest-quality components, design and workmanship. Computer run-testing after assembly ensures that your unit performs flawlessly at start-up. And in the unlikely event of a malfunction, WaterFurnace units are backed by the best warranties in the industry. Your geothermal unit will provide many years of dependable operation.
QUIET: Water Furnace systems donít require noisy outdoor units that can disturb your peaceful surroundings or create unsightly additions to your homeís appearance. 
SAFE: Because natural gas, propane or oil is not required to operate the unit, thereís no combustion, flames or fumes and no chance of carbon-monoxide poisoning.
FLEXIBLE: One compact WaterFurnace unit provides heating, central air conditioning and supplemental domestic hot water. A variety of configurations and sizes are available for a wide range of home applications, including newly constructed and existing homes. No matter what climate you live in, your WaterFurnace system will deliver.
CLEAN: High-efficiency air cleaners found in WaterFurnace systems keep your indoor air quality clean, removing dust and pollen so you can breathe easier.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: The ground absorbs about 47 percent of the sunís energy that reaches the Earth. Water Furnace systems harness that free, renewable energy and provide an environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Installing a WaterFurnace system is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees or removing two cars from the road. And the WaterFurnace system doesnít burn fossil fuels, which means no emissions or harmful greenhouse gases are released into the air.

Geothermal Loop Types
WaterFurnace dealers are trained to determine the best type of earth loop to use in any situation. The type of loop used is based on available land space and installation costs for specific areas.

Horizontal Loops
Often used when adequate land surface is available. Depending on geothermal system needs and space available, pipes are placed in trenches that range in length from 100 to 400 feet.
  Vertical Loops
The ideal choice for a geothermal heat pump when available land surface is limited. Well drilling equipment is used to bore small-diameter holes from 100 to 400 feet deep.
Pond (Lake) Loops
Very economical to install if a large body of water is available for use by the  system. Coils of pipe are placed on the bottom of the pond or lake to capture the geothermal energy.
  Open Loops
Also called a well-water system. In ideal conditions, an open-loop application can be the most economical type of geothermal system. These use groundwater from a well as a direct energy source.
