Let The Earth Heat and Cool Your Home
Geo Exchange is a system of heating and cooling that uses water and ground loops to use the earth as a heat sink or heat source in the winter. It sinks heat into the ground in the summer, as well as heating your hot water year round. Water is circulated through polyethylene pipes in closed loops that are installed below the ground. The loops are connected to an extended range water source heat pump.

The environmental benefits are that this system is non-polluting, has no exhaust emissions, reduced CO2 emissions and requires a smaller amount of both power and refrigerant than conventional systems. The upfront capital costs for a geo exchange system are 35-40% more, but annual savings with a system like this are about 60% over conventional heating and cooling costs.

The payback for the system in this video was 6 years, and now the owner is making money on it.    ;D

In U.S. homes, natural gas is the most widely used energy source (49%), followed by the secondary energy source, electricity, at 39%. Thatís reversed in commercial buildings, where electricity (55%) is depended on more than natural gas (32%).

The energy needs for these different buildings vary but when viewed as a whole, more than half of the energy used in commercial buildings goes to just heating (36%) and lighting (21%). Within this sector, retail stores and service buildings use the most total energy (20%), followed by office buildings (17%) and schools (13%).

Renewable Energy NEGA-watts (energy NOT used because it WASN'T NEEDED for passive geothermal applications in heating and cooling or other Renewable energy technologies) is NOT an energy unit for energy unit REPLACEMENT. That is because MUCH LESS ENERGY is being used to heat and cool the same space that fossil fuels used to.

But thermodynamically challenged enemies of Renewable Energy will continue to place a false equivalence on the fossil fuels versus Renewable Energy.  ::)  So it goes.   :P
