FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Geothermal products from WaterFurnace International Inc., a leading manufacturer of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional geothermal and water source heat pumps, will be featured in an upcoming edition of the HOMETIME television show.

Hosted by Dean Johnson, HOMETIME is a home improvement television show broadcast on public television and in syndication across the United States. The weekly show is designed to help homeowners achieve professional-looking results from their home improvement projects.

On Feb. 27, 2010, HOMETIME aired the first half-hour episode in a 19-part series that documents the construction, from groundbreaking to furnishing, of a state-of-the-art house - The Stone Cottage. Designed by Minnesota architect Mike Sharratt, The Stone Cottage will showcase a number of innovative systems for foundations, framing, roofing, insulation, and HVAC, including a WaterFurnace geothermal heating and cooling system that provides hot water for radiant heat. The house also features attractive solutions for design, layout, and landscaping.

The first phase of the installation of geothermal equipment and the radiant floor heating system is the subject of episode nine in the Stone Cottage series. The episode is scheduled to release to PBS stations around the country on April 24. Viewers should check their local listings or use the online station finders in the On TV section of the HOMETIME Website to find stations, airdates, and times for HOMETIME broadcasts in their area.

A vertical ground loop will support the home’s geothermal heating and cooling system, which includes units from the WaterFurnace Synergy3D and Envision™ NSW Series.

The energy-efficient Synergy3D Series provides forced air heating and cooling, hydronic heating for radiant floors, and a desuperheater hot water assist option that can provide homeowners with free supplemental domestic hot water in one package. Designed to efficiently provide hot water for radiant floor heating, domestic hot water, pool heating and snow and ice melt, WaterFurnace’s NSW hydronic units can reduce hot water costs by as much as 60 percent per year, says the company. In addition, NSW units are capable of providing chilled water for cooling applications.
