    • 25. Energy Star
    • 26. Why Choose Energy Star Housing?
    • 27. High Energy Bills
      • Air leaks in your home’s envelope
      • Inefficient windows
      • Inefficient heating or cooling equipment
      • Poorly sealed and insulated ducts
    • 28. Drafty Rooms
      • Caused by cold air coming into or going out of your house
      • Leaks hidden in the attic and basement
    • 29. Hot or Cold Rooms
      • Significant differences in room temperature could be caused by several factors
        • Inadequate insulations
        • Air leakage
        • Poor duct performance
    • 30. Did you know that a typical home can cause twice the greenhouse gas emissions of the typical car?
    • 31. Did you know?
      • In 2005, the Energy Star program as helped Americans have save
        • Enough energy in 2005 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 23 million cars
        • $12 billion on their utility bills
    • 32.
      • The average family spends $1,900 a year on energy bills
      • Energy efficient choices
        • Save families about a third on their energy bill
        • Save on greenhouse gas emissions
        • No sacrifice in features, style, or comfort
      Did you know?
    • 33. Each Energy Star qualified home can keep 4,500 lbs of green house gases out of our air each year
    • 34. Upgrades That Qualify for the Tax Credit

      • In a February 2006 report, the Energy Information Administration states that between 2005 and 2010 of the renewable fuels available today for residential use including solar, wind turbines, and forms of biomass, the most widely used and readily available residential renewable energy is geothermal energy from ground source heat pumps
    • 149. Your Energy Bill...
      • If you are a typical homeowner
        • About 70% of your total energy bill is for heating, cooling and hot water
        • The rest is for lighting, appliances and other usage
      • Therefore, the biggest opportunity to save large amounts of money on your energy bill is to increase the efficiency of you heating cooling, and hot water system
    • 150. System Operating Cost Comparison
    • 151. What Is Geothermal Energy?
      • Geothermal systems use the earth or well-water to provide heating, cooling and hot water for your home
      • A heat pump “moves” energy from one location to another, instead of creating heat by burning fossil fuels, such as a gas furnace does
        • Works like your refrigerator
        • Winter vs Summer
    • 152. How can it heat using the earth temperatures?
      • A few feet below the surface, earth temperatures remain relatively constant and moderate.
      • Ground temperatures are much milder than average monthly air temperatures.
    • 153. What Is a Geothermal Heat Pump?
    • 154. How Does the Heat Move from the Earth to My Home?
      • The heat pump moves through a liquid medium
        • Inside a loop system (CLOSED LOOP)
        • Through well-water (OPEN LOOP)
    • 155. Geothermal Loops
      • Closed Loops
        • Horizontal
        • Vertical
        • pond/lake
      • Open Loops
        • Well water
    • 156. Open Loop Systems
      • Key considerations
        • Adequate water supply (5-9 gpm in addition to household requirements)
        • Good quality water (low mineral content)
        • Adequate discharge location (drainage ditch, field tile, pond, etc.)
        • Only changes the temperature of the water a few degrees
    • 157. Closed Loops
      • High density polyethylene pipe (life expectancy of over 200 years)
      • Does not rust, rot, or corrode

    • 158. What About Hot Water?
      • A geothermal unit can make hot water too!
      • An optional component makes hot water when the unit is heating or cooling your home
      • The unit will generally make around 50-75% of the hot water required for your home, but the actual amount can vary depending on run time
        • The rest of the hot water is generated by your conventional water heater.
      • Free hot water during cooling
