EnviroWise Geothermal Systems
a new take on comfort.
Hardworking, ultra efficient systems
that can change comfort forever.
When you think smart, efficient comfort solutions, you think American
Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. In fact, you’ve trusted us to
provide perfectly heated, cooled and cleaned air for over 100 years.
Now, we’re bringing home new thinking about home comfort with
the impressive efficiency of geothermal heating and cooling.
And our systems are every bit as comfortable as you’d expect.
So relax and enjoy a whole new standard of energy awareness
with EnviroWise™ Geothermal Systems from American Standard
Heating & Air Conditioning.
When comparing geothermal units, pay close attention
to the EER, or Energy Efficiency Ratio. Similar to miles
per gallon in a car, EER measures the efficiency with
which your system operates. The higher the EER, the
less energy you’ll use to stay comfortable.
Your home should be as quiet as it is comfortable.
So you’ll find American Standard geothermal
systems can offer some of the lowest sound levels
of any system on the market.
Comfort for your whole home. From your planet.
An American Standard EnviroWise™ Geothermal
System works on a very simple principle based on
renewable energy from the sun. No matter what the
weather or season, the temperature within the earth
remains constant because almost half of the sun’s
energy is absorbed by the Earth. By tapping into
those even, steady temperatures underground, your
American Standard geothermal system can comfortably
heat and cool your home with great efficiency.
There is a system that is right for your home.
Your system’s installation includes a professionally-designed, fluid-filled loop that consists
of an underground pipe system. As the loop’s fluid circulates, it draws heat out of your
home in the summer, and into your home during the winter. Four different configurations
are possible. Your dealer will help you select the system that is most efficient for you.
Vertical Loop
Horizontal Loop
When space is limited,
heat transfer tubes are
mounted straight down
into the earth.
When plenty of space is
available, heat transfer tubes
are installed horizontally rather
than vertically.
Open Loop
Pond Loop
Existing groundwater
is used as the heat
transfer solution.
A nearby lake or pond
is used to absorb or
gather heat.
According to the EPA, a geothermal system is one of the most efficient ways
to heat and cool your home. When you consider that your home comfort
system accounts for a significant amount of your overall energy costs, an
American Standard geothermal system can provide substantial savings over
the long run. In fact, an American Standard EnviroWise™ Geothermal System
is so efficient, it can return up to $4 of heat for every $1 spent on electricity.
Special financing available.

to transfer heat, using an air handler or furnace to circulate air.
Platinum ZM – indoor
Platinum ZM – outdoor
Platinum XV – indoor air handler
This two-stage system offers
up to 33.1 EER, and works in
conjunction with an air handler
or furnace for enhanced indoor
comfort. The small footprint
saves space, and the indoor
product can be located up to
60 feet from the air handler.
Optional hot water heating is
Similar to the Platinum ZM indoor,
this system offers the comfort of
two‑stage heating and cooling and
works in conjunction with an indoor
air handler or furnace to provide
comfortable temperatures from two
different sources. In this application
all geothermal components of the
Platinum ZM reside in a weatherized
cabinet outside your home, minimizing
the space requirements inside.
The unique cabinet design of our
Platinum XV air handler allows less
moisture and fewer dust particles to be
drawn in from garages, attics or crawl
spaces. This double-wall cabinet design
also helps prevent energy loss and
virtually eliminates condensation. Select
models of our Platinum XV air handler
have been specifically engineered to
match with our EnviroWise geothermal
heat pumps.
Water Heating and Cooling Systems.
These systems circulate fluid through the earth, transferring heat to and from another fluid loop built
