Walk outside, There’s a power plant right under your feet. Thanks to the modern geothermal heat pump, homeowners no longer must choose between saving money and saving the planet.

Thanks to the Sun’s clean, renewable energy, and a rather steady ground temperature of about 50 degrees, a 2,000 square foot home may be heated/cooled for about $1.00 a day!
Maintenance costs are reduced as well. Geothermal systems have fewer moving parts, and outside components are buried, not exposed to the wear and tear of the elements.
