Green Heat

Need a new heating/cooling system for your home?  Why not consider geothermal?  The air temperature around our home varies greatly.  In the summer it’s very hot and in the winter very cold but if you dig down into the ground 5 feet or so the temperature holds steady at about 50 degrees.  Watch this video to learn how it a geothermal heating and cooling system works…  

Cool (or warm) right?

Would you be a little afraid of the investment?  I was talking to my brother about it.  He builds houses in Florida and said there are so many environmental things he would like to do like passive water heaters and solar panels but they are just not selling points for buyers.  It is human nature to be afraid of investing in something new because of fear of the unknown.  But what if it was required and we were all in the same boat?   A boat that was better for the earth and one that would save us money in the long run!  I know I would support legislation that would require a percentage of new construction’s energy to come from renewable resources.  How about you?

  1. I think it’s a fabulous idea. I am not scared of something new, I’m scared of the cost. I know it will pay off in the long run, but we also need to live in the short term.

    I’m all about reducing our dependence on coal and oil. This is the future.

    Thanks so much for sharing and for educating me.

    • I don’t think so, that is why you need the compressor. It would be cool to live near a naturally occurring hot-spring though!

  2. How fascinating! All the new builds around here seem to have eco-friendly things like solar and passive hot water. Very smart ideas in such a sunny place! I spoke with another man who built his own house and said the power company pays him each year for the power he puts back into the grid.
