    Solar energy can be affordable with Solar Panel Warehouse solar modules. We will help you build your system one panel at a time.

    That’s not how indoor heaters work

    @rayban5016 lol it’s true though

    best advertisement ever.

    Sounds cool, but leave the global warming/acid rain crap out of your pitch.

    Very cool

    Save the environment. Save money. Use dead alkaline batteries to power LED flashlight! In fact, you can even use the ‘dead’ alkaline battery to power your solar night light your garden. The alkaline batteries act as a rechargeable batteries that can power your solar light for months. I have done with my garden and sidewalk.

    the reason why we need this is the fact the way it works doesn’t interact with the outside enviroment it only interacts with your home! this stops heating up the earth durring the summer

    I think geothermal heating/cooling is quite expensive to convert to for most families, it is definitely the future, but will happen slowly as new properties are built with geothermal. If I had the dough I would convert right now! I’m quite sick of paying 2-3 thousand a year on heating. Geo would pay for itself in a decade.

    i have my own backhoe and plenty of property how much can i exspect to save on instaulation by doing my own escuvating as i know theies pumps are well over 14,000 dollars US

    Why on earth some people want to over complicate a simple process is beyond me. I have a (currently) open looped system using well water for my source. Soon the well drilling company will arrive to drill separate closed loops systems which will be permanent. The HVAC unit in the home has a redundant heating and cooling unit to supplement the Geo-Thermal unit if needed. Right now it is 111* degree’s outside (air temp), and the Geo-Thermal unit has the indoor air at 75*, very comfortable degrees.

    @MrGregster17 Cost is dependent on geographic location, installation type, choice of equipment and local ground conditions. A local expert would be the best person to give you an accurate estimate. You can find a local dealer at the WaterFurnace website – I see you’re in Canada so make sure to click on “search Canada” at the bottom of the dealer locator page.

    How come there is nothing mentioned about the coxt? I’m sure that would affect many peoples decision.

    Please see globalwarminghysteria. com for the truth about global warming.

  18. unirrational says:

    Love the technology and I plan on using it in my next home, coupled with solar panels. It makes sense. But to claim that it minimizes global warming is ridiculous. Gore’s speculative global warming “the sky is falling” theory is nothing but – hot air. It’s bad science. And many scientists have said so.

  19. WaterFurnace says:

    @AXIAM79 The earth is a huge energy storage device that absorbs 47% of the sun’s energy–more than 500 times more energy than mankind needs every year. A properly designed system won’t negatively impact your neighbor’s geothermal potential. In fact, WaterFurnace is proud to be a part of many all-geothermal neighborhoods around the country.

  20. AXIAM79 says:

    sounds great but what if my neighbour also has geothermal, doesn’t that drain my heat source

    You could combine this with other energy star appliances and introduce solar voltaic panels on your roof and get close to getting off the grid. But most people I know that use this sell back their electricity during off peak hours. So they are not completely off the grid. I have not studied wind, but it seams it would be cost prohibitive for a single residence. Solar panels are quite expensive as well, cost $30 per square foot and generating 5w per hour per square foot, roughly.

  22. toddttucker1968 says:

    This will heat and cool your entire house, just as a standard heat pump will. With a standard heat pump, you heat and cool by exchanging with the utside air, which can vary. By using the ground, you have a more consistant temperature. Depending where you live, you may notice with a standard heat pump, the unit continually operates during the winter. This is because as it draws out the cold from your house, the lines start to freeze. It has to reverse the process and kick on the heat strips.

  23. cptnsmelly says:

    Will this heat/cool your entire house with no need for an additional heating source/cooling source? Also, will it heat all of the water in your house? Also, would it be possible to power the geothermal furnace using wind power or something similar? I’m interested in designing a completely off-the-grid house.

  24. WaterFurnace says:

    @alakazammagics This type of system doesn’t use steam. We place pipes just below the frost line where temperatures remain constant all year round. These pipes collect low temp heat (roughly 55 F) from the ground and concentrates it with a compressor to heat your home. To cool, it removes heat from your house and moves it back into the ground. The EPA and DOE call this type of system the most environmentally friendly, cost effective way to condition a building. Visit our website for more details.

  25. alakazammagics says:

    I love how they never specify directly how this will heat your home… only how it harvests heat from the earth, where does steam from the earth come into effect in heating air in your house? They did say this was a furnace system in the video, when in reality the only concrete evidence that geothermal energy profits us is in the creation of electricity alone not the transfer from heat.
