EnviroWise™ Geothermal Systems

EnviroWise Geothermal Systems
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.
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. Our geothermal systems are
environmentally friendly too; with no carbon dioxide
emissions, they reduce the amount of greenhouse gas
emissions that contribute to climate change.
American Standard geothermal systems include EnviroWise™ earth coupled heat pumps and a
high density polyethylene underground piping system (ground loops) that circulate a fluid between
the heat pump and the earth. This fluid transfers heat between your home and the earth, saving
you money every day, no matter the season. Your local, independent dealer is the best resource
to determine the most effective configuration for your home.
Vertical Loop
Horizontal Loop
When space is limited,
heat transfer tubes are
mounted deep down
into the earth 200 feet
or more.
When plenty of space is
available, heat transfer tubes
are installed about 6 to 15 feet
below the surface rather than
Open Loop
Existing groundwater
pumped from wells
is used as the heat
transfer fluid and is then
returned to the ground.
Pond Loop
A nearby lake or pond is
used, instead of the earth,
to absorb or gather heat as
a heat source or heat sink to
transfer heat. Piping is usually
used to transfer the fluid to
your EnviroWise™ heat pump.
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.
