Have you noticed that most of life is about looking forward to something or dreading it. Even from childhood we begin these waves of anticipation or anxiety. We look forward to the end of the school year because it means of summer of fun, play and relaxation. Within two months the we now experience the other end of this wave with the dread of the school year beginning again. In adulthood we continue this roller coaster of emotion with major decisions that we have to make we look forward to buying our first home but we dread the responsibility of the work and costly repairs to maintain it. We can have some stability has homeowners with a stable energy saving utility bill with Geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal heat pumps are considered by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to be the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, cost-effective space conditioning systems available today. A wonderful aspect of this method of heating and cooling is that geothermal heat pumps do not use fossil fuel to heat or cool the air in your home like traditional heating and air conditioning systems. Geothermal heating and cooling systems work by using the constant temperature of the ground to heat or cool a space. The earth absorbs the heat from the sun and stays a constant temperature all year. Unlike the air which temperature changes with the hot or cold seasons. So, during the winter the geothermal heat pump absorbs the heat that is in the earth through water that runs through pipes underground, compresses it to a higher temperature to heat your home to the desired temperature. The system works in reverse to cool the home during the summer months. Geothermal heat pumps do not use fossil fuel to heat or cool the air in your home like traditional gas or oil heating and cooling systems.
