American Standard Geothermal System
The key to successfully using geothermal heating and cooling is having a good house.
The Ultimate House has spray foam insulation, great windows, dehumidification, and a Honeywell 9500 Thermostat. The American Standard Geothermal System works together with the other features to efficiently heat and cool the house.
The geothermal system circulates water through the geothermal loop, which allows Mother Nature to do the work of cooling the unit. The geo-start keeps the unit from starting at a high amperage, which means it requires less energy and is more efficient. Furthermore, the American Standard Geothermal System produces free hot water, which augments the existing water heating system and leads to lower energy costs for the homeowner.
