With heating and cooling costs reaching new highs, many people are looking to the Earth for answers. New geo-thermal heat pumps can so dramatically lower heating and cooling costs that many people are pulling out their old equipment for the next generation. Liz Galst of the New York Times says:
The business for ground-source heat pumps is so hot that when some people driving in and around Seattle see Gerard Maloney’s EarthHeat van, with the company’s phone number on the side, they call from their cellphones. “Really, we have people doing this,” Mr. Maloney said.
Like other energy alternatives, ground-source heat pumps have won new admirers as energy costs have skyrocketed.
The pumps, also called geothermal heat pumps, use the relatively constant temperature just below the earth’s surface — six feet below, in many cases — to draw warm air into a building in winter and remove warm air in summer. Advocates say the systems can save building owners 25 percent to 65 percent on energy costs while reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
