  25. 25. Energy Star
  26. 26. Why Choose Energy Star Housing?
  27. 27. High Energy Bills <ul><li>Air leaks in your home’s envelope </li></ul><ul><li>Inefficient windows </li></ul><ul><li>Inefficient heating or cooling equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Poorly sealed and insulated ducts </li></ul>
  28. 28. Drafty Rooms <ul><li>Caused by cold air coming into or going out of your house </li></ul><ul><li>Leaks hidden in the attic and basement </li></ul>

  148. 148. Geothermal Facts <ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  149. 149. Your Energy Bill... <ul><li>If you are a typical homeowner </li></ul><ul><ul><li>About 70% of your total energy bill is for heating, cooling and hot water </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The rest is for lighting, appliances and other usage </li></ul></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  150. 150. System Operating Cost Comparison
  151. 151. What Is Geothermal Energy? <ul><li>Geothermal systems use the earth or well-water to provide heating, cooling and hot water for your home </li></ul><ul><li>A heat pump “moves” energy from one location to another, instead of creating heat by burning fossil fuels, such as a gas furnace does </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Works like your refrigerator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Winter vs Summer </li></ul></ul>
  152. 152. How can it heat using the earth temperatures? <ul><li>A few feet below the surface, earth temperatures remain relatively constant and moderate. </li></ul><ul><li>Ground temperatures are much milder than average monthly air temperatures. </li></ul>
  153. 153. What Is a Geothermal Heat Pump?
  154. 154. How Does the Heat Move from the Earth to My Home? <ul><li>The heat pump moves through a liquid medium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Inside a loop system (CLOSED LOOP) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Through well-water (OPEN LOOP) </li></ul></ul>
  155. 155. Geothermal Loops <ul><li>Closed Loops </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Horizontal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vertical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>pond/lake </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Open Loops </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Well water </li></ul></ul>
  156. 156. Open Loop Systems <ul><li>Key considerations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adequate water supply (5-9 gpm in addition to household requirements) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Good quality water (low mineral content) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adequate discharge location (drainage ditch, field tile, pond, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Only changes the temperature of the water a few degrees </li></ul></ul>
  157. 157. Closed Loops <ul><li>High density polyethylene pipe (life expectancy of over 200 years) </li></ul><ul><li>Does not rust, rot, or corrode </li></ul><ul><li>All connections are made by heat fusion </li></ul><ul><li>55 year No Leak warranty </li></ul>
  158. 158. What About Hot Water? <ul><li>A geothermal unit can make hot water too! </li></ul><ul><li>An optional component makes hot water when the unit is heating or cooling your home </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The rest of the hot water is generated by your conventional water heater. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Free hot water during cooling </li></ul>
  159. 159. Applications <ul><li>Forced air heating and cooling </li></ul><ul><li>Supplemental water heating </li></ul><ul><li>Dedicated water heating (radiant floor, snow melt, pools) </li></ul><ul><li>Add-on splits to fossil fuel furnaces </li></ul>
  160. 160. Geothermal System Benefits <ul><li>Energy savings up to 60% </li></ul><ul><li>Quiet operation </li></ul><ul><li>No short, hot blasts of air - more even heat </li></ul><ul><li>No noisy outdoor unit </li></ul><ul><li>Less maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Long equipment life </li></ul><ul><li>No flame, fumes or combustion - SAFE </li></ul><ul><li>No unsightly outdoor tanks (propane) </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentally friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Clean </li></ul>
  161. 161. Customer Satisfaction <ul><li>According to the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) 99% of geothermal system owners are so satisfied with their systems they would recommend one to a friend </li></ul>
  162. 163. US Environmental Impact <ul><li>Nearly 1,295,000 cars taken off the road </li></ul><ul><li>More than 385 million trees planted </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce reliance on imported fuels by 21.5 million barrels of crude oil per year </li></ul>
  163. 164. Federal Tax Incentives (2009 – 2010) <ul><li>New and Replacement HVAC Systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>30% tax credit to homeowner </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geothermal equipment must be Energy Star rated </li></ul></ul>
  164. 165. Federal Tax Incentives for Homebuilders (2009 – 2010) <ul><li>A builder can claim a $2,000 Federal Tax Credit per home if the structure exceeds the 2004 International Energy Efficiency Code by 50% </li></ul><ul><li>An Energy Star home, already exceeds the 2004 IECC by at least 30%; adding a geothermal system will get the home to the 50% level in most cases </li></ul>
  165. 166. Local Property Tax Incentives <ul><li>Contact your County Assessors </li></ul><ul><li>Available on new construction and existing home change-out </li></ul><ul><li>Ranges from $50-350/year </li></ul>
  166. 167. Geothermal <ul><li>The #1 reason that homeowners decide to install a geothermal system in their home… </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Savings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Once they own the system, they love it for its comfort, quietness and reliability! </li></ul></ul>
