WaterFurnace Announces Rebates for Geothermal Updates

Originally published: 09.25.12 by HVACR Business Staff

WaterFurnace International, Inc., recently announced its Perfect Choice Savings Event which will run from Sept. 4 to Nov. 30, 2012. Homeowners will have a choice between instant rebates up to $2,500 or special zero percent financing on any of three geothermal packages. 

“WaterFurnace geothermal heat pumps deliver dramatic savings on heating and cooling costs with a comfort you have to experience to believe,” said Tim Litton, WaterFurnace director of marketing communications. “We want to give every family an opportunity to upgrade to geothermal and our Perfect Choice Savings Event was designed for that purpose. This special offer becomes even more attractive when you factor in the 30 percent federal tax credit for equipment and installation costs, as well as the growing number of local incentives.”

Three promotional packages are tailored to fit homeowner needs and feature the WaterFurnace 5 Series 500A11:

Ultimate Comfort Package: Perfect for homeowners looking to dramatically reduce heating and cooling costs while generating 100 percent of their hot water. This offer combines the 500A11 with the Envision NSW hydronic unit and a GeoTank storage system. Customers who purchase this system can choose between a $2,500 instant rebate or zero percent financing for 12 months.

Essential Comfort

Package: This package includes the 500A11 for energy-efficient heating and cooling along with all the accessories required to install the system. Customers can take advantage of a $1,500 rebate or choose zero percent financing for 12 months. 

Geothermal Upgrade Package: Designed for the homeowner who is already experiencing the benefits of a geothermal heating and cooling system, this package offers a 500A11 system to upgrade an existing geothermal unit of any brand. Customers can choose between a $1,000 instant rebate or zero percent financing for 12 months.                    

The 5 Series 500A11 geothermal heat pump is similar to a traditional heat pump, but instead of using heat found in outside air, it taps into the constant thermal energy stored just below the earth’s surface. A series of underground pipes (an earth loop) circulates an environmentally friendly mixture of alcohol and water to transport that energy.  

The earth loop brings heat into the home from below ground during the winter and removes heat from the home during the summer, carrying it back into the ground. Using this free energy source can save homeowners as much as 70 percent on their heating and cooling bills, the company says. The system can also generate heat for hot water, all without using any on-site fossil fuels or emitting carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases.
