Use what’s already there – free & renewable store of energy
Taking advantage of geothermal energy to heat and cool your home or business with efficient, environmentally friendly geothermal power just makes sense. And selecting WaterFurnace is a smart way to get “greener”. Don’t just take our word for it…
- The EPA concluded that geothermal energy is the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling system on the market
- The U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory determined that geothermal energy is a cost-effective and more efficient method of heating and cooling than conventional residential systems.
- Federal, state, & local governments and utilities offer many rebates and tax incentives which encourage investment in geothermal heating and cooling.
- Most importantly, ask any of your neighbors of whom switched to geothermal and love it!
While cost savings and energy usage will vary by region and type of system a geothermal pump is replacing, a geothermal solution will usually be more cost effective, smarter, and certainly a greener option.
Geothermal energy is the smarter way to heat and cool your home or business – it’s efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. It’s hard to get much greener than WaterFurnace.

You already own the property – why not utilize the free energy source just beneath the surface of your yard? A WaterFurnace geothermal system can distribute an astounding five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used.
Not quite sure what that means to you? What you get is an economical means to condition your Northern Colorado home – much less than what your friends and neighbors will pay. The geothermal products we place in your home are the most proficient equipment in the industry today. So why not use the clean, renewable energy in your backyard and realize savings up to 70% on heating, cooling, and even hot water!
The approach of fall signals a prime time to start thinking about heating your home during the cold winter months. According to the Department of Energy, the average family in the United States spends roughly $1,900 a year on utility bills. Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted. The secret to saving energy and money is to investigate energy efficient improvements for your home.
A Northern Colorado geothermal home comfort system taps into the abundant source of free solar heat energy trapped in the earth. It uses a series of pipes (also known as an earth loop) buried in the ground to transfer that heat into a home during the winter. According to the experts at WaterFurnace, most systems can be easily installed in both new and retrofit situations. In addition to the ground loop (either horizontal or vertical), the system also requires ductwork to dispense conditioned air through the Northern Colorado home or business.
Although the initial investment in a geothermal system may be higher than the investment in a standard system, the long-term return on that investment ensures it is one worth making. The energy source is both free and renewable, and the average system lifespan exceeds 24 years—compared to 15 years for an ordinary system.
In most cases, the monthly savings that an energy-efficient geothermal system offers will surpass any payments associated with the installation of the new system. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) deems geothermal one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems offered.
Installation of a geothermal system starts with a visit from your Northern Colorado geothermal dealer. The dealer will measure your house, compute your heating and cooling requirements and review your property to suggest the best location for your loop system. If you own a house that does not have an existing duct system, your geothermal dealer can easily retrofit your home to include one.
Once installed, a geothermal system requires less maintenance than a standard heating and cooling system and functions more efficiently, delivering an impressive five units of energy per one unit of electrical energy used. That translates to a 500 percent efficiency rating and savings up to 70 percent for utility costs.
Another advantage — geothermal systems use no fossil fuel and produce no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases. Homeowners experience added comfort, enhanced indoor air quality and less noise as they minimize their carbon footprint.
