Through an exclusive partnership with Enwave Energy Corp, an industry-leading district energy provider, Springwater phase 1 residents will enjoy year-round heating and cooling provided by GeoExchange technology. Operating with 4x more efficiency than natural gas furnaces, Enwave's GeoExchange system requires no direct fossil fuels, little maintenance and improve your carbon emissions by up to 75% when compared to an Ontario Building Code home with a furnace.
GeoExchange is a sustainable energy system that harnesses thermal energy from the ground. It’s been used throughout the world for decades to provide homes and buildings with clean, efficient and reliable heating and cooling.
The underground GeoExchange system connected to your Springwater home will replace both a traditional interior furnace and the exterior central air conditioning unit with a single ground-source heat pump. This heat pump is more compact and quiet than a traditional HVAC system, and will be located in the mechanical room of your home, connected to duct work just like a furnace would.
The science behind GeoExchange technology is tried and tested, and is powered by the consistent temperature of the ground beneath the community. GeoExchange technology harnesses an exchange of thermal energy with the ground, using buried pipes carrying water and food-grade glycol. These pipes are 1” to 2” wide and can go as deep as 250 metres below the surface.
The pipes will be located underneath the roads throughout the community and connect to each home with supply and return pipes. These two pipes allow the glycol water to enter the heat pump within your home, exchange thermal energy, and return back to the community system.
In winter, the community pipes absorb heat from the ground, concentrate it, and send it to your heat pump to heat your home. In summer, the reverse happens: your heat pump cools the hot air in your home with the cooler temperatures from the ground.
GeoExchange technology requires no direct fossil fuels to run, and will enable residents to improve their GHG emissions by approximately 75% when compared to an Ontario Building Code home with a natural gas furnace, just by owning a Springwater home. Because the system is not tied to fossil fuels, you’ll also enjoy the benefit of cost certainty, without the worry of carbon tax increases.
The system is also incredibly safe and reliable, and will be professionally monitored and maintained by our trusted partners.
