TAG Mechanical Installs Geothermal System for Parade of Homes

Geothermal System Offers a Small-Footprint, Highly Energy Efficient Configuration

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Mechanical contractor TAG Mechanical Systems Inc. provided an Earthlinked Technologies geothermal system for the Oakhurst model at the 2013 Parade of Homes in Jamesville, N.Y., a suburb of Syracuse. The Parade of Homes event, hosted by the Home Builders & Remodelers of Central New York, showcased the latest construction trends and practices at Jamesville Grove Estates.

The Earthlinked Technologies direct exchange geothermal system installed by TAG is a small-footprint, highly efficient system that uses the consistent ground temperature (in this case approximately 100 feet down into the earth) to provide heating and cooling as well as hot water. A copper tube earth loop configuration circulates a heat-transfer refrigerant for energy efficient heat exchange with the earth. The system brings heat from the earth to a compressor to heat the home during the heating season and removes heat to the earth during the cooling season.

Earthlinked Technologies’ ground loops can be installed in several configurations — diagonal, vertical, or horizontal.

TAG also displayed Generac and Kohler standby generators at the Parade of Homes event. A permanently installed standby generator for a home or business provides power during power outages. The equipment operates on a variety of fossil fuels (such as natural gas, propane, or diesel) and can provide sufficient power to maintain heating or cooling, refrigeration, lights, and communications capabilities.

TAG Mechanical Systems is a leading Syracuse, N.Y.-based commercial and residential mechanical contracting firm providing design-build, construction, installation, and repair of HVAC and renewable energy systems (including solar photovoltaic, geothermal, and micro-combined heat and power). TAG Home Performance, a division of TAG Mechanical Systems, provides an array of building science services designed to make homes and buildings healthier, safer, and more energy efficient.
