High Performance Home Builders Turning to the Latest Geothermal Technology

Nov. 8, 2017

At the 2017 EEBA High Performance Home Summitt in Atlanta, building professionals from across the country gathered to share their experiences with the latest in building science.

Tim Wright, residential sales manager for Enertech Global LLC, discussed the role of geothermal HVAC in helping builders create homes that use less energy for heating and cooling and provide a high level of comfort as well. Geothermal HVAC manufacturers are responding to the building industry's need for smaller capacity units for tightly built, highly insulated homes that don't require as much heating and cooling capacity as a standard house that only meets building codes.
