Our Solution Benefits
GeoSpot is more energy efficient & environmentally Friendly than RealSpot Solution.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
The Geoexchange Systems are "The most energy efficient, environmentally clean, safe and cost effective space conditioning system available today".
Our solutions uses Geothermal Borehole Thermal Energy Storage (BTES) scheme that is not only save energy but most importantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Using BTES system for both heating and cooling results in:
Geothermal systems have a longer life cycle:
Years for the Mechanical Equipment
Years for the ground loop.
Improved Comfort & Indoor Air Quality
Our system targets the worker, not the workplace, which allows the system to decrease humidity levels and maintain temperature levels below design threshold limits to provide comfort to the workers. Also, Geothermal systems provide heating and cooling more evenly than conventional equipment resulting in a significant increase in comfort.
Flexible - Customized for each facility's specific needs
Below numbers are based on ,9500 square feet molding plant where client was going to use 90 tons of conventional system, actually ended up using only 16 tons of Spot Solution, huge cost savings.
Easy to install, economical to purchase
Our system is size to provide comfort to the worker rather than whole plant so the system size is much smaller as compare to conventional system which means lower Capital Cost and maintenance cost.
100% Capital Cost of Conventional system
50% Capital Cost with Our GeoSpot System
30% Cost with Our RealSpot System
Lower maintenance Cost
Geothermal systems have a longer life cycle: 25 years for the mechanical equipment and 50+ years for the (ground loop,
compared to 15 to 20 year life expectancy for traditional HVAC equipment. With zero combustion and less moving parts, our GeoSpot system require less maintenance and cost when compare to RealSpot and Conventional system.

Lower Operating Cost
Because 75% of geothermal energy is free, and GeoSpot system runs at maximum efficiency with coefficient of performance (COP) values from 4 to about 8, compared to COP values of around 3.5 for a conventional GSHP geothermal installation as the ground is set at substantially lower temperature around 35 degrees F with same system operating hours in cooling mode, the GeoSpot is extremely efficient and offer lower operating cost when compare to RealSpot and Conventional System.

GeoSpot and RealSpot equipment are installed indoors. This improves longevity of equipment and provides a safe environment for maintenance staff. Workers are not exposed to the dangers of servicing equipment on rooftops. Also, there is no production of carbon monoxide from a geothermal system.
Reduce overall Green House Gas Emissions including zero on-site emissions. Geothermal heat pumps produce no GHG emissions on site. Due to the high efficiency and reduced use of electricity, geothermal heat pumps also produce less GHG emissions from offsite sources.
Also, GeoSpot and Real Spot use R410A refrigerants, which has an ozone depletion potential of zero. As well as helping to preserve the ozone layer, R410A boosts the operational efficiency of the air-conditioning system.
For RealSpot the heat may be provided with steam, hot water or electric heating. In certain circumstances the boiler system need to be added which use natural gas or propane as energy source. In Canada, natural gas is the main fuel used for municipal gas supply. Compared to oil and coal, this energy source generates lower levels of environmentally damaging substances such as NOx, SOx, and CO2.

No outdoor condensing units or cooling towers on roof or ground provide architectural freedom and less structural concerns from weight of roof-top equipment.
