FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - A new program from WaterFurnace International, Inc. (TSX: WFI) offers up to $2,000 in rebates to homeowners who upgrade their existing geothermal systems to WaterFurnace Envision or Synergy3D before Feb. 15, 2010, depending on the age and manufacturer of their existing system.

The Geothermal Homeowners Stimulus Event offers:

--  $2,000 to homeowners who upgrade WaterFurnace equipment that is between
    one and 10 years old

Under the provisions of ARRA, homeowners who install a geothermal system before Dec. 31, 2016, can take advantage of a federal renewable energy tax credit of 30 percent of the total investment for the system. This tax incentive is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2009. Homeowners can also take advantage of utility rebates and state and local tax incentives to make geothermal systems more affordable than ever.

WaterFurnace Envision products set the industry standard for efficiency, reliability and quiet operation. Envision units use ozone-safe R-410A refrigerant to meet the most stringent requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Synergy3D is the geothermal equivalent of a boiler, furnace and air conditioner -- all in a single unit. Synergy3D units use environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant, and variable-speed ECM blower motors ensure quiet operation.
