Kermit the Frog always said it was so hard to be green...he was wrong! Ground source heat pumps can make your home NetZero without doing much to the home. When combined with other renewable technologies such as wind, solar, building a more energy efficient building and selecting efficient appliances, it's not even that hard to get off the grid completely...
In my blog I'll be expressing my opinions about what I've the learned about ground coupled heat pump (GCHP) systems over the last 30 years. I've been very fortunate to work with many interesting people who are passionate about this technology...engineers, geologists, mechanical contractors, drillers, excavation contractors...in different parts of the world. I've learned a lot from them and will be using this forum to pass on some of the things I've learned and feel are important. Please feel free to use this information if you feel it's worthwhile...hopefully you can avoid some of the same mistakes I've learned from.
