Heating Up with Geothermal Power

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

GeysersWhile the air can range from scorching hot to freezing cold, the earth maintains a steady temperature that has increasing applications as a renewable and highly earth friendly power source. Geothermal heat pumps can be used to regulate building temperatures and in some cases, even provide piping hot water- with next to no environmental impact. Although the technology has been available since the 1940′s, in recent years small and easy to install models are making the ground’s natural energy more accessible than ever.

Manufactured by ClimateMaster, the Tranquility 27 is one of the most eco-friendly models on the market. Exceptionally efficient, this refrigerator-sized geothermal pump uses the stable temperature of groundwater to redistribute your home’s heat, providing cooling air in summer and effective cold weather heating, depending on your needs. Considered the highest-efficiency water-source heat pump commercially available, the Tranquility also uses “zero-ozone depletion” refrigerant, making this an excellent choice for earth-conscious island owners.
