Heat and cool your home with geothermal energy

This highly informative video by Bruce Ritchey, CEO of WaterFurnace International, details how geothermal heat pumps can be used to heat and cool homes. Not only is the cost less than with conventional systems, the systems are quiet, environmentally friendly, and require less maintenance.

These heat pumps use the stable temperature of the earth a few feet underground to store heat in the summer and use it in the winter. Thus, the energy to heat and cool the home comes from the earth itself, something which has obvious huge potential, especially in the Northeast where heating oil is becoming extremely expensive.
