Harnessing geothermal energy for your home is a wonderful way to reduce your carbon footprint, while also saving yourself some cash if you are in it for the long haul. In fact, it is one of the best ways to get clean, renewable energy, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Here are four advantages of using geothermal energy for heating and cooling your home.
The Power Of Using The Earth
There is currently no other system that is as energy efficient as geothermal, because you are literally using the power of the Earth. No run-off gasses, no carbon emissions, just the earth itself to heat and cool your home. However, it does use some electricity to extract the heating and cooling from the ground – but far, far less than any other system uses to get the job done.
