Geothermal HVAC (Green Heating and Cooling)

File Size: 7.09 Mb

I have been passionate about geothermal air-conditioning for 20 years because it is renewable, sustainable, and comfortable. And now with new federal incentives in the United States, I am glad to say that I can add a fourth watchword: doable. Even so, my favorite word of the four is sustainable. You may think it’s because geothermal technologies can reduce our reliance on dirty, scarce fossil fuels and lessen our impact on the environment. That’s certainly true, but that’s not the first thing I think of.

You see, I grew up as the oldest of nine children on a nine-acre ranch in the high desert of California. My father is a great man, a high school English teacher, who provided well for our family on $18,000 per year during the 1970s, my formative years. Our electrical budget was $50. Our food budget was $200. We had a shared party line for the phone and no cable TV. We could get one or two network affiliates by antenna if the atmospheric conditions were right. By our very nature, we were green before it was cool.
