The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has called ground source heat pumps the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available. Heat pumps offer significant emission reductions potential, particularly where they are used for both heating and cooling and where the electricity is produced from renewable resources.
Ground-source heat pumps have unsurpassed thermal efficiencies and produce zero emissions locally. Installing a 3 ton system is equal to planting 1 acre of trees or removing 2 cars from the road.
America is way behind in Geothermal Heating and Cooling compared to Switzerland and Sweden.
