The Google-Nest Learning Thermostat

Is your thermostat worth a billion dollars?

Probably not.

Most thermostats are simple and cheap, so it may surprise you to learn Google Inc. just spent $3.2 billion to purchase Nest Labs, maker of the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Why would Google spend so much money to purchase a thermostat manufacturer?

It could be worth $19 trillion dollars.

Google believes the market for the Nest Learning Thermostat, and other “connected home” products like it, will one day be part of a market worth $19 trillion dollars. That’s a whole lot of zeroes, but to get there a whole lot of people have to start buying new thermostats and similar products.

So, why would you or anyone else invest in a Nest Learning Thermostat?

To save money.

Used correctly, any programmable thermostat will save energy, which saves money. Manually adjusting a thermostat will save money too. Most people don’t do either. It can be a pain to get a programmable thermostat working correctly, and it’s easy to forget the thermostat is even there when you aren’t too hot or too cold already.

The Nest Learning Thermostat controls your interior air comfort without you having to learn any complicated programming technique or adjusting the temperature every day of the year.

Install the Nest Learning Thermostat, use it like a manual thermostat for a while, and it won’t be any time at all before Nest is adjusting the temperature the way you want it without you having to lift a finger.

As you can see, it’s called a ‘learning’ thermostat for a very good reason, because that’s exactly what it does.

The Nest is smart enough to reduce your energy consumption by up to 20%, so you waste less, and spend less.

Geothermal HVAC Systems – The Basics

Geothermal HVAC systems, also called ground source heat pumps, are among the most energy efficient systems available. Depending on the situation, typical energy savings are from 25% to 70%.

These units have two efficiency ratings. The unit’s cooling efficiency is given as an EER (energy efficiency rating). In both cases, a higher number with the rating means the unit is more efficient.

According to the U.S. EPA, these systems have the lowest life cycle cost of any HVAC system. Although they usually cost more to install, they generally require less maintenance and repairs.

Depending on the local conditions, the time required to recover the installation expense can be pretty short. There are now systems that can mostly be home-owner installed. This can lower the installation costs considerably and make the systems more affordable.

While water to water geothermal systems do exist, combined forced-air heating and cooling units are the most common.

There are two main types, open loop and closed loop systems. Closed loop systems carry either water or a water/antifreeze mixture.

Open loop systems are commonly called “pump and dump” systems. They pump water from a well to the system then return it to another well or discharge it on the surface. They are not very common and many local codes do not allow this type.

Closed loop systems are the industry standard. These loop systems use a sealed water system where the water is used over and over instead of being dumped. There are three basic ways these systems are installed. The first way is a series of plastic pipes buried in trenches about four feet deep. This is called a horizontal loop system. It is an economical solution where sufficient land area is available.

In the vertical loop system, the pipes are buried in a series of holes drilled down around 200 feet. The holes are filled with a non-setting material. This ensures good heat transfer between the pipe and the ground. This method is usually more expensive to install due to the specialized drilling required. But, much less land area is required, so it is a more common solution in smaller cities and towns.

The last method involves submerging the loop system in a pond or lake. Usually the loops are placed on a rack and submerged.

The earth’s temperature at the depths of these loops stays relatively constant all year. In the U.S., it is about 45-55 degrees all year. In the warmer parts of the world, the temperature can be as high as 70 degrees. But even at that temperature, they can still provide superior cooling capacity.

The next part of the system is the actual heat pump. They work like a typical air source heat pump operating in 50-60 degree outdoor air (which is where an air source heat pump is usually most efficient). Unlike the air source heat pump, there is usually no equipment located outside the home. The main difference is that their heating and/or cooling capacity and efficiency do not change as much because the ground temperature is relatively constant.

The unit uses a reversing valve to change the direction of refrigerant flow. This determines whether heat is added or removed from the air in the home.

Most of the units can provide a good portion of the homes hot water requirements. This is accomplished by the addition of a heat exchanger that is referred to as a desuperheater. This is usually combined with a regular electric water heater. In these systems, hot water is only produced when the home requires heating or cooling.

There are two types of these units. The first type contains all the mechanical components required for the system. This is referred to as a package system.

The other type only contains the compressor and associated components. This is usually combined with a furnace or air handler. They are called split systems and are sometimes combined with a gas furnace and referred to as a hybrid heating system. This type is usually a lot more expensive to install but they offer more flexibility in design.

The latest innovation is a unit that replaces the old existing air source heat pump with a geothermal unit. It is designed to be placed outside where the old heat pump was located. The geothermal loop system is completely outside. Refrigerant lines run from the outdoor unit to a coil on the furnace/air handler. It uses many of the existing HVAC system components to minimize installation costs. One of the main advantages is that normally no changes are required to the existing electrical wiring.

There are many manufacturers of these units, which makes it hard to compare brands. We have performed the research and put the results in a simple format.

The final part of the forced air geothermal system is the duct system. This is similar to a conventional duct system, although the ducts are typically bigger.

Ingram’s Water and Air Equipment – GeoCool Geothermal Heat Pumps

Ingram’s Water and Air from Paducah, KY announces that production of their new GeoCool geothermal heat pumps are in production and will be ready to ship by the end of September.

The decision to use geothermal in your home is perhaps one of the single most important decisions you can make as a homeowner.

The new unit in production now is perhaps the most economical unit of its kind that you can purchase and is available exclusively through GeoCool.

This eco-friendly series geothermal heat pump provides the homeowner with ultimate comfort and performance in one compact – easy to install unit. This unit is built using the latest technologies and with the highest standards and boasts the specific use of R410A a chlorine free and non-depleting refrigerant. The good news to customers is that this unit can provide up to a 70% savings on heating, cooling and hot water, with added hot water heater coil.

Geothermal is becoming a more viable choice to homeowners even with higher installation costs, because of the return on their investment.  When fuel costs having climbed through the roof in the past year – with no apparent end in sight – homeowners are seeking ways to save money and geothermal is one way to do that.

DOE statistics show that the cost of running a geothermal system in a 3,000 square-foot house would be about $700 a year – and its equivalent natural-gas system costing as much as $6,000 a year – which is a more than significant savings for most consumers to consider.

Geothermal technology utilizes the relative constant underground temperature to heat and cool buildings – which amounts to an estimated 70% drop in home energy costs.

There is a catch. A geothermal system costs more to install-however the technology does allow residential users to qualify for a 30% federal tax rebate, which is an important incentive.

Geothermal power is a clean, renewable resource with considerable potential our day-to-day living as it comes straight from the earth – the earth is the biggest solar collector we know.

Ingram’s Water and Air realizes that positive solutions need to be found – and we are doing our part to think outside of the box – and one of those solutions is our GeoCool geothermal compact easy to install unit.

Ingramswaterandair.com, the online division of Paducah, KY based Ingram’s Water and Air Equipment, which supplies HVAC and related equipment throughout the United States, is pleased to announce that it still has stocks of R-22 condensers and heat pumps available for immediate shipment at clearance prices.

The Federal government has banned all new installations of R-22 based air conditioning equipment, but it does not regulate the repair or replacement of existing R-22 systems. Therefore, many apartment buildings and commercial premises which are cooled with R-22 air conditioning systems will need to have replacement condensers and heat pumps installed in time for the peak air conditioning season. Contractors are therefore seeking reliable sources that still offer a selection of R22 condenser and R22 heat pump AC equipment.

Given the nationwide reputation of Ingramswaterandair.com for quality HVAC parts and components that are delivered quickly at reasonable prices, the announcement that the dealer still has R-22 based equipment available was welcomed by HVAC contractors and building managers throughout the country. In order to make room for newer legally mandated R-410 based equipment, Ingramswaterandair.com is offering their remaining R-22 condenser and heat pump stock at clearance prices. The present stock  consists of heat pumps and condensers in various sizes from top manufacturers, so that the components can be relied upon to function properly for as long as R-22 refrigerant remains available in the United States.

Contractors and building managers who have R-22 based air conditioning systems that may require replacement or upgrading of heat pumps or condensers are advised to contact Ingramswaterandair.com at (800) 360-1569 or sales@ingramswaterandair.com for more information regarding the R22 condenser and R22 heat pump AC clearance.
