If you live in a part of the country with very cold winters, then you are likely no stranger to cold houses and high energy bills. With fuel prices on the rise, the winter weather can chill more than just homes. It can also put the freeze on your bank account and put your family in the financial red.
Yet, there is hope. Geothermal heat pumps are renowned for their energy efficiency and are available in radiant floor heating applications that can warm your house and save you money. McQuay International manufactures a wide variety of geothermal heat pumps and other heating, ventilation and air conditioner units. They are very proud of their line of water-to-water geothermal heat pumps and the WRA-1048 4 Ton is no exception. It is designed for excellent energy efficiency and for radiant floor heating capability.
Of course, radiant floor heating is not all that common in the United States and you might be a bit leery of it. Don’t be! Radiant floor heating is as old as civilization and common use of it dates back to the Roman Empire and before. In the modern day, many Northern European countries, particularly in Scandinavia and Finland, make use of radiant floor heating and they have winters harsher than most! If it’s good enough for the Ice Capitols of Europe, then it is probably going to be good enough for our American winters.
McQuay’s warranty coverage is just as luxurious as the warmth their geothermal heat pumps provide. The put a 5 Year Warranty on all parts and a further 10 Year Warranty on the scroll compressor. That’s reassuring coverage, since the scroll compressor is the one part you want to insure has a long life.
So, if the looming precipice of a cold winter has gotten you down this summer, look into a geothermal heat pump and a radiant floor heating application. It can provide the warmth you want at a price you’ll love.
