Proponents of geothermal heating and cooling systems have been pounding on the door of public acceptance for almost two decades. And now, thanks to improved equipment and changing attitudes, doors are beginning to open. Though the number of geothermal systems sold today is still less than 1 percent of the domestic heating market, sales for fall through spring were up nearly 22 percent from the year before. When the numbers for the ''98 season are tallied, the industry expects similar gains. Slowly but surely, homeowners are beginning to take notice. What's so compelling about geothermal technology?

Before installing any new heating or cooling system in a home, it is necessary to re evaluate and reduce the energy load of the home. A more energy efficient home will not only reduce the cost of a new system and utility bills, but it will greatly improve the comfort of your home. Before we design and install any systems, we schedule a home energy audit in which an energy auditor will recommend improvements and make estimates for cost and energy savings from these improvements. Basic improvements usually include adding insulation and air sealing measures. Energy Environmental Corporation works with and can recommend several qualified home Energy Star auditors and installation experts. Please Contact Us for references.

The frequency in which you should clean or replace your filter is dependent upon several variables including the type of filter media, your outdoor environment and your indoor environment. Contact your dealer with a recommended schedule for filter maintenance. If you have opted for a permanent electrostatic filter, wash it with a garden hose and a mild household cleaner at least every 60 days.
