Investing into a geothermal heat pump for modern home

The solar panels are satisfactory to run the geothermal heat pump

My husband and I are extremely environmentally conscientious; When my pal and I built our apartment in Tuscaloosa, AL, it was absolutely important to us to focus on yellow alternatives; My friend and I wanted a designated section for a vegetable garden and fruit garden that my pal and I could irrigate by way of rainwater. My friend and I set up a compost section and invested into solar panels. With the amount of sunlight in Tuscaloosa, we’re able to generate more energy than my pal and I could possibly need. My friend and I still wanted to be responsible with handling heating and cooling, however the local weather brings especially hot and humid summers and rather short however cold winters, after considerable research, my pal and I chose a geothermal heat pump. While the initial investment is significantly higher, geothermal heating and cooling is rated as the most environmentally friendly opening by the Environmental Protection Agency. The majority of the cost is due to an underground loop system that requires a good deal of excavation, once the underground loop is in site, it is warrantied for fifty years and should last twice that long! Because the heat pump is installed inside the apartment and protected from the elements, my pal and I can expect it to provide upwards of twenty years of operation. The system works by drawing free and sustainable heat energy out of the ground and pumping into the home! In cooling mode, it reverses the operation to run much like a conventional cooling system. The system produces four times the amount of energy it requires to operate, achieving 400% efficiency ratings. The solar panels are satisfactory to run the geothermal heat pump. My friend and I pay no heating or cooling bills.
