Trane's EarthWise Geothermal System: Flexible and Functional

You are always looking for better, more environmentally-friendly ways to do things. You have a plastic bottle you reuse for your water, you faithfully separate your waste into recycling containers, and you compost the biodegradable waste. Why shouldn't your home be just as efficient?

Shakley Mechanical is experienced with both Trane and ClimateMaster geothermal unit installation and maintenance. As we said in a previous blog, these geothermal heat pumps are extremely efficient. They can reduce your heating and cooling bills by up to 80%. These pumps provide:
  • Home heating and cooling
  • Water heating
  • Radiant heating
In this blog we are going to talk about Trane and their unique EarthWise™ Geothermal System. A geothermal system works like a heat pump, only on a much larger scale. In cold weather, your home is warmed by heat brought in from the earth. During warm weather, your home is cooled by the movement of heat from your home back into the earth.

With Trane, they offer four types of geothermal configurations: Open Loop, Pond Loop, Horizontal Loop and Vertical Loop. Our helpful Shakley Mechanical staff will help you determine which installation works best for your needs. The best one will be the one that best matches your land situation.
  • Open Loop – Uses existing groundwater as a heat transfer medium.

  • Pond Loop – Uses the water in a nearby lake or pond to absorb or gather heat.
  • Horizontal Loop – When plenty of space is available, the heat transfer tubes are not as deep, and extend out rather than down.
  • Vertical Loop – When space is limited, the heat transfer tubes are sunk straight down into the earth.
The Trane brand is known for its reliability, which is why we choose to install their systems. They are built with quality materials and true craftsmanship, as well as backed with robust warranties. The flexibility of the four different configurations allow Trane EarthWise™ Geothermal Systems to adapt to any region, in any home, so no matter what you pick, you will see the benefits!

Spring Plumbing To-Do List

As springtime is now nearly here, your plumbing needs a little bit of preventative maintenance to keep everything running smoothly now that we are starting to thaw out! Here are a few chores to add to your spring cleaning list!
Drain Any Sediment in Your Water Heater Over time, sediment may collect in the bottom of your water heater. This can not only reduce how efficiently it works in the long run, but it could also mean an early death for your water heater. Draining your water heater can be a time-consuming process, and it requires a bit of knowledge. If you have never done it yourself, or you’re not entirely comfortable with how to do it, it is recommended that you call a plumber. One of the best plumbing tips we can give you is to make sure you are getting your water heater regularly cleaned. If sediment is left uncleaned, it’s very likely the buildup will cause the water heater to break entirely.

Outdoor Plumbing Maintenance

Often times we think about the plumbing inside of our house but what about outside of our home? Sure, chances are the outdoor parts of your home don't have as many outdoor plumbing fixtures, but they are just as important. Fall brings a few important things to do to protect the integrity of your outdoor plumbing. Many times they get overlooked until just before winter, until there's an issue, or missed completely. We want to make sure your outdoor plumbing is taken care of though.

1. Outdoor Faucets -- Outdoor faucets are one of the most prone to freezing which can lead to bigger issues with the plumbing inside your house. Switching the water supply off and draining the pipe can prevent water from laying there and freezing. Covering the faucets with styrofoam for insulation also protects them. You can pick up foam faucet igloos at most hardware and home improvement stores.

2. Hoses -- Proper storage of garden and garage hoses can help them last longer. By leaving water lay in…
