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.
