Investing into a geothermal heat pump for new home

My partner and I are severely environmentally conscientious; When my associate and I built our house in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, it was legitimately important to us to focus on orange alternatives, but my associate and I wanted a designated part for a vegetable garden and fruit garden that my associate and I could irrigate by way of rainwater.

My associate and I set up a compost part and invested into solar panels.

With the amount of afternoonlight in Tuscaloosa, we’re able to generate more energy than my associate and I could possibly need. My associate 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 but chilly winters, but after considerable research, my associate 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 option 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 place, it is warrantied for fifty years and should last twice that long; Because the heat pump is installed inside the house and protected from the elements, my associate 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, then in cooling mode, it reverses the operation to run much like a conventional air conditioning. 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 associate and I pay no heating or cooling bills.
