Learn About Geothermal Installation Types
The Tranquility Series provides you the most energy savings of any space conditioning system available. The advanced two-stage compressor and variable speed fan maximize efficiency while EarthPure Ozone Safe refrigerant provides unprecedented environmental protection. The system is so sophisticated it automatically adjusts itself to provide the optimum, consistent indoor air temperatures regardless of the weather extremes. The system is engineered for quiet, efficient operation and comes in multiple capacities with both horizontal and vertical configurations.
Available from 1.5 to 6 tons and primarily used in new construction type projects. However, existing homes that meet the space requirements for this system are greatly benefited. Suitable locations for this system are in a garage or indoor closet, or homes featuring an encapsulated foam attic.
The innovative design of the Tranquility Split offers all the features of the Tranquility Package System and a variety of cost-saving installation options available for the first time with a geothermal system. The indoor split system may be placed in a suitable location within the home eliminating the space requirements of the packaged system, and the need for outdoor equipment. ClimateMaster's electric air handler, or a gas furnace featuring ClimateMaster's air coil, replaces the homes existing indoor equipment with no need for relocation of the system or ductwork, reducing installation costs.
Available from 2 to 5 tons (whole ton sizes only) and primarily used in existing homes for retrofit.
Some homes may have such limited space that even an indoor split system cannot satisfy. In this case, the Tranquility Outdoor Split offers all the features of the Tranquility Package System and brings cost-saving installation options to the homeowner. The outdoor split system replaces your current outdoor air conditioner or heat pump, while ClimateMaster's electric air handler, or a gas furnace featuring ClimateMaster's air coil, replaces the homes existing indoor equipment. The outdoor split system features a waterproof steel enclosure to protect the equipment from the enviroment and eliminates the loud fan motor of today's conventional air conditioner's and heat pumps. Homeowner's are pleased to invite family and friends to their backyard BBQ without having to talk over loud equipment.
Available from 2 to 5 tons (whole ton sizes only) and primarily used in existing home for retrofit.
Hot Water Generation
The Geothermal Hot Water Generator (HWG), or desuperheater, option provides considerable operating cost savings by utilizing excess heat energy from the heat pump to help satisfy domestic hot water requirements. The HWG can reduce hot water operating costs by 45-55%.
The HWG is active any time the heat pump is operating, providing virtually free hot water when the heat pump operates in cooling mode and hot water at the efficiency of the heat pump in the heating mode. Electric water heaters that feature dual heating elements (upper & lower) are recommended. However, a gas or propane water heater can be used, but requires a second preheat tank that must be installed. If the electric water heater has only a single heating element, the dual tank system is recommended.
It is always advisable to use water softening equipment on domestic water systems to reduce the scaling potential and lengthen equipment life. In extreme conditions, it may be necessary to avoid the use of the HWG option since the potential cost of frequent maintenance may offset or exceed any savings.
