Commercial Project Highlights

Benefits of Direct Geothermal Heating and Cooling

> New building, retrofit or add-on facility

A Direct Energy geothermal solution can be incorporated into the construction of a new building or facility, or retro-fitted within an existing building. Using up to 80% less mechanical space and requiring no ventilation they are easy to incorporate into any building design.

We understand commercial requirements are specific and unique and that is why Direct Energy provides a tailored solution to match your exact needs. Whether you are requiring technical consulting, feasibility assessment, system design, installation, performance monitoring or other services, Direct Energy provides you the unparalleled expert assistance and advice you need.

> Control energy costs, faster payback

Solar geothermal energy is a constantly available, clean, renewable energy source with environmental benefits and cost savings that have been proven over time. Boasting coefficients of performance (COP’s) from 3.5 to greater than 5 in space heating and cooling, Direct Energy systems reduce cooling costs on average of 30% as compared to a 10 SEER air conditioner, and heating costs by 75% as compared to electric heat.

Direct Energy’s geothermal heat pumps for water heating deliver up to 400% electrical efficiency. For every Watt of electricity consumed by Direct Energy’s compressor, the system delivers three to four times that amount of heat energy to the water tank because it is primarily transporting renewable energy. The monthly energy savings in commercial applications are so large that the system quickly pays for itself.

> Save up to 70% or more on energy bills

A direct geothermal heating and cooling solution is a highly efficient low-energy technology that taps into the natural heat of the earth that can save businesses up to 70% or more on energy bills. The more commercial applications the geothermal systems service, the greater the $$$ energy savings and the faster the payback period.

> Corporate Social Responsibility

Direct Energy’s geothermal systems utilise the stable renewable energy source to deliver the most economical, cost effective and environmentally friendly method for heating and cooling air and water. Direct geothermal not only delivers you significantly lower energy operating costs through reduced fossil fuel consumption, it also reduces your carbon footprint.
