WaterFurnace announces SEVENbration

Promotion offers homeowners savings of $2,100 on WaterFurnace's 7 Series variable capacity geothermal heat pump

FORT WAYNE, Ind., March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WaterFurnace International, Inc., the leading manufacturer of geothermal and water source heat pumps, announces the launch of SEVENbration, a celebration of the success of the groundbreaking 7 Series variable capacity geothermal heat pump. Through April 30, SEVENbration offers homeowners an instant rebate of $2,100. The offer is available through all participating WaterFurnace dealers.

"SEVENbration offers homeowners an attractive incentive to upgrade to the most energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system on the market," said Tim Litton, WaterFurnace director of marketing communications. "Since the launch of the 7 Series, we've saved thousands of happy homeowners millions of dollars on heating, cooling and hot water by using the clean, renewable energy in their backyard. Combined with a 30 percent federal tax credit, several local incentives and year-round savings on utility bills, SEVENbration provides a unique opportunity for homeowners to maximize their return on a geothermal investment."

The 7 Series is the first variable capacity geothermal unit available for homeowners and the only unit to surpass both 41 EER and 5.3 COP, efficiencies twice that of traditional air conditioners or heat pumps and 30 percent greater than current geothermal units. The unit utilizes a soft-start variable capacity compressor, in concert with a variable speed ECM blower and variable speed loop pump. This allows the unit to scale output to exactly the level needed rather than the "high" or "low" speeds found in normal systems. The 7 Series can ramp down to 20 percent of normal operation for ultra-efficient conditioning or up to 130 percent output using SuperBoost™, for periods when extra cooling is needed. The capacity range is the industry's widest and can even eliminate the need for auxiliary heat.

The 7 Series also utilizes Aurora, WaterFurnace's next-generation of controls, to continuously monitor and optimize operation. Aurora provides two-way communication between components, robust troubleshooting capabilities and advanced communication protocols.

WaterFurnace's 7 Series was recently honored with a prestigious 2014 AHR Expo Innovation Award in the "heating" category. The 7 Series also achieved the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient designation in 2012, 2013 and again in 2014.

WaterFurnace geothermal heat pumps are similar to traditional heat pumps but are more than twice as efficient. Instead of using the outside air, geothermal heat pumps tap 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 for heating, cooling and hot water, all without using any on-site fossil fuels or emitting carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases.
