57 Welles Lane in Winter
57 Welles Lane is an Energy Star certified home using state-of-the-art Geothermal technology to both heat and cool this home. Throughout the year, even with snow on the ground, the ground temperature is a constant 58 degrees farenheight. Specially designed thermal wells on the property transfer this ground heat to the house using quiet, high-efficiency water pumps, circulating the earth's natural heat throughout the house.
In addition, ICYNENE insulation provides more than double the insulating properties of standard fiberglass insulation, reducing the total heating and cooling expense to less than half that of a traditional, oil fired system for a house of this size.
