has installed geo-thermal, in-floor heating systems for homeowners in Seymour, Kaukauna, Appleton, Neenah and Menasha.
Homeowners really appreciate the warmth and comfort that comes with geo-thermal, in-floor heating systems.
You’ll experience lower heating bills during the cold weather months. Contact Pat at Randerson Heating and Cooling for an estimate and to learn more about how geo-thermal, in-floor heating systems can pay for themselves over time.
Geothermal takes advantage of one of nature’s wonders—the earth’s nearly constant underground temperature of 45 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit—to provide year-round heating and cooling. Geothermal systems exchange heat with the earth using an underground network of pipes filled with water or refrigerant. In winter, the fluid pulls heat from the ground and transfers it to the house through a heat exchanger. An indoor fan system circulates air through the house. In summer, the system deposits heat from the house into the earth and brings cool air back in.
Nearly any home—old or new—can take advantage of versatile ground source heat pump (GHP) systems. Retrofits often use existing ductwork with minimal modifications, and the slinky loop system makes pipe installation possible even on small, tight lots.
Down to Earth
Wondering if a geothermal heating and cooling system is right for you? It’s easy to weigh the pros and cons of this clever technology.
■ Efficient and eco-friendly. GHP systems transfer heat instead of creating it, so they don’t rely on fossil fuels. GHPs get high ratings from the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.
■ Durable. Underground loops are protected from external elements such as inclement weather and vandalism, and they rank high in safety with no open flame, flammable fuel or fuel storage tanks; no combustion is involved. Pipes are fusion-welded to prevent leaks. The pipes have a life expectancy of 50 years or more.
■ Inexpensivetooperate. With fewer mechanical operating components, GHPs require less service than conventional heating and cooling systems and have a high reliability rating, keeping maintenance costs low.
■ Space-saving. Hardware for GHPs is smaller than conventional heating and cooling systems and requires a smaller mechanical room, which frees up floor space for other uses.
■ Comfortable. GHP systems maintain humidity at a constant comfort level.
■ Quiet. GHP systems have no outside compressors, which eliminates exterior noise.
