Knoxville homeowners looking to build a new home will find WaterFurnace geothermal heat pumps
to be their best heating and cooling option. Especially with the planning assistance, installation, and service we at Smith and Associates Geothermal provide. We encourage using a Home Energy Rater,
particularly if your builder has not worked with one before. Making sure your structure is built efficiently allows a smaller, more economical HVAC system to be installed. A Rater will also ensure your whole house will work as a system, avoiding furture problems. Proper design is the foundation of any effective geothermal installation. Smith & Associates Geothermal has the knowledge and uses state-of-the-art tools to perform a comprehensive analysis for the design of every system we install. These services include:
- - Manual J8 Load Calculations for proper sizing
- - Dual and Variable Capacity Units for optimal efficiency
- - Zoned Rigid Duct Design to ensure each level/area of your home has total comfort
- - Loop Design and Installation
Up fronts costs may be higher for geothermal, but generally when those costs are rolled into a mortgage, the utilities savings more than offset the increased mortgage payment. This results in a positive monthly cash flow from installing geothermal in your new home.
