Geothermal – Hydron Geothermal System An investment in a geothermal system provides a climate controlled environment to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer at a constant level.   This is a commitment to using the earth’s natural resources to maintain a temperature that is amenable to you year round.  A geothermal system offers additional benefits including a pledge to improving the environment, reduce home maintenance expenses, and saving on utility bills.

 Why geothermal? 

  • Safe and Secure – no fossil fuel exhaust means no chimney or flue is required. There is no opportunity for explosions or carbon monoxide poisoning, which makes a geothermal system the safest choice for your family.
  • Money In Your Pocket – Geothermal systems are recognized by the EPA as the most energy efficient heating and cooling systems available today. Savings are produced by tapping into the free energy naturally stored in the earth.
  • Earth Friendly – Geothermal systems actually have a positive impact on our environment since they burn no fossil fuels and use very little electricity. This enhances our efforts to control pollution, green house emissions, and other issues that impact our everyday environment.
  • Noise Free Environment – no noisy outdoor air conditioner is required, so air conditioning no longer has to detract from your outdoor activities. An additional bonus: there is no unsightly outdoor unit to detract from your landscaping.
  • Less Maintenance and Service – a single system heats, cools, and produces hot water. Since this unit is located inside the home, it is not exposed to harsh outdoor conditions which could lead to mechanical issues.
  • Comfort, Comfort, Comfort – because of the way geothermal systems cycle, they do a better job of air purification and dehumidification than conventional systems. They also provide more consistent air temperatures throughout the house, eliminating hot and/or cold spots. Additionally, zoning can allow you to maintain a different temperature in different areas of your home.
  • Free Hot Water – a geothermal system has the capability of capturing reclaimed heat during the heating and cooling modes thus reducing a typical 4-person household’s water heating cost by 50% to 60%!
  • Longer Life Expectancy – you can expect your geothermal system to provide you with, on average, 20 to 24 years of reliable total comfort and savings as compared to a 13 to 15 year life expectancy of conventional systems.
  • Flexibility – there is no job too big or too small for a geothermal system. Our versatile equipment can be installed in existing homes, new construction homes, small shopping centers, and even the largest commercial structures.

2 Watersedge Court Lattingtown is equipped with a highly efficient, corrosion free, minimal maintenance Hydron Stainless Steel Geothermal HVAC System with an outstanding dehumidification system in the natatorium.  The self-regulated system works whisper-quiet 24/7 to provide a comfortable environment during even the most humid or frigid weather conditions in the Northeast.

Locale for 2 Watersedge Court, Lattingtown Located in Nassau County, within the Town of Oyster Bay, perched on the northern most shores of the Long Island Sound, sits the tiny incorporated Village of Lattingtown.  Occupying just under 4 square miles, this quaint North Shore enclave is bordered by the equally lovely Bayville, Mattinecock and more urban Glen Cove townships.  The village got its name from its founder, Richard Latting, who in 1660 bought the land from the Matinecocks.

Today, Lattingtown is a charming and spacious place to live with beautiful beaches, shopping and dining establishments conveniently located throughout the surrounding hamlets. For art and leisure, there are many cultural sites to visit including the Bailey Arboretum, Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum and the Planting Fields Arboretum.  To find out more about Lattingtown, click on the neighborhood guides.

For those individuals who commute into Manhattan, there is the Locust Valley Train Station where you can almost always get a parking spot – a rare benefit on Long Island.

There is a tranquility and beauty in Lattingtown.  The amenities including great public and private schools at Locust Valley Central School District, golf and equestrian centers, boutiques and quaint shops make living here a wonderful experience especially during the summer months.  It’s Hamptons-esque without the travel especially along West Shore Road in Bayville.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

labor-day-2013Labor Day commemorates one of the great ethical victories of American society. It also marks the end of summer, and a time for retail store sales, and the last chance to get away to Disney World, but few of us think about the real meaning of the word “labor” in the name, and how it is meant to honor brave, dedicated men and women who fought, sometimes literally, the forces of greed, political influence, wealth and privilege in this country to ensure a measure of safety, consideration, fairness and justice for the hardest working among us.

At a time when too many people are unemployed, Labor Day also can remind us that having a job, whether white or blue-collar, managerial or administrative, bureaucratic or entrepreneurial, is a precious thing. We should not take it for granted, but celebrate that we have the opportunity to “labor” (and to barbecue).

Men are made stronger on realization that the helping hand they need is at the end of their own right arm”       ~ Sidney J. Phillips

Wishing you a happy and healthy long weekend!                                            ~Maria
