Geothermal History in brief

Today many are discovering geothermal heating & cooling and believe that it is a "new" technology. In fact it is nothing new at all! Lord Kelvin developed the heat pump concept way back in 1852! In the 1940's a heat pump was developed by using a freezer capturing the "wasted" heat from the compressor!

Then, with the oil embargo of the 1970's, it spawned a renewed interest in developing energy efficiency, and this was the catalyst that has helped the geothermal industry to be the hottest market for saving your energy dollars today.

In 1978 the first geothermal system for Porter & Heckman was installed in Lapeer county. Since that day over one thousand customers have had geothermal systems installed and serviced by us.

Shouldn't you find out why so many people have chosen to go with Michigan's best and most experienced geothermal contractor for their new heating, cooling, & hot water system?

The call is free! The site visit is free! In fact, we will send you a FREE information packet filled with literature on the best geothermal equipment on the market today.

"The WaterFurnace 7 Series™ provides homeowners the ultimate in comfort and performance and represents our finest products. This line is for those who accept only the best and is built using the latest technologies and highest standards.
The 700A11 signifies groundbreaking innovations on multiple fronts – most notably as the geothermal industry’s first fully launched variable capacity residential unit and the only unit to surpass both the 41.0 EER and 5.3 COP efficiency barriers. These ratings are vastly greater than ordinary conditioning systems and 30% higher than current two-stage geothermal heat pumps.
Our Aurora communicating controls work in unison with the InfiniSpeed technology. A variable capacity compressor, variable speed loop pump, and variable speed blower motor combine to offer a level of comfort you have to experience to believe. Best of all, 7 Series units use the stored energy in your yard to provide savings up to 70% on heating, cooling, and hot water."
This new breakthrough system is only available at specially trained WaterFurnace dealers. This training goes over and above the normal factory training that our dealers get on all our other products.
