Symbiont Services Recommended by CES

In the latest edition of Commercial Energy Specialists (CES) newsletter, CES Water Quality News, Symbiont Services was recommended for professional water source heat pump installations.

“Water Source Heat Pumps: Water Source heat pumps pull heat out of ground or lake water, and transfer it to the pool water, saving you thousands of dollars a year. Extensive installation makes the payback longer, but these units can heat AND cool, so you can have year-round direct control of pool or spa temperature.

★Pitfalls: This installation should be handled by an experienced heating professional (like Symbiont Services), as the well-drilling, directional boring, and DEP permits are beyond the skill set of a typical pool company. You will also want to watch your chemistry as chemical imbalances can destroy your heat pump investment.”

The GeoThermal System’s Indoor Portion: What It Involves

The GeoThermal System's Indoor Portion: What It InvolvesA geothermal heating and cooling system consists of an indoor and an outdoor portion, both of which are vital to the system’s function. The basic structure of a water-source geothermal system requires an outdoor system of pipes, often referred to as the water loop, placed in a well, aquifer, lake or other water source at a depth where the water retains a consistent year-round temperature. Ground-source heat pumps use a similar loop system buried at a distance beneath the surface where the temperature stays about 50 degrees all year long. Read More »
