Here’s how it’s gone. First, I never thought about getting geothermal, then my architect said we should look into geothermal, then I looked and found crazy high prices and went back to standard HVAC. Then today i talked to a local friend who said he knows someone who has it installed and the efficiency is super fabulous and the cost is only $5k.
hmmm…..so now it’s back on my list of things to check out. Here’s some information on the technology, Geothermal Heatpump Consortium . What better place to get unbiased info than a govt lobbyist group. Here’s a nice little graphic to show how geothermal heat pumps work.
Will share the info as it comes in.
