Geothermal homes are centuries old. The concept is nothing new and certainly nothing that can be laid claim to with some sort of patent. However, it is a concept that is seeing a resurgence in many parts of the world and especially the desert regions of the United States. The benefits of a geothermal home are massive, but what are the reasons? Why are geothermal homes helping green living?
Energy is one of the key ways that geothermal homes help green living. One of the biggest complaints regarding energy is that energy producing plants and factories are polluting the air. With a geothermal home the energy comes to keep the home hot or cold comes from the earth. There is no central air and heat, heat pumps or electrical lines. Everything comes from the earth itself.
Some believers of the geothermal home building industry say that these type of homes can create new environments. If you look at the geothermal masterpiece by Cody Lundin, then it could be true. His geothermal home. located in the high desert, provides food for rabbits and has started to show a vegetative life in an area that is known for little to no life at all. The sustainability provided within a geothermal home can offer an ecological development unseen in certain areas for centuries. Imagine a desert becoming a lush countryside simply from the use of geothermal technology!
Geothermal homes can get their energy that heats and cools the home from the earth or it can use a geothermal heat pump. The benefit or the reason why geothermal heat pumps for geothermal homes help the environment and help people go green is due to the conservation benefits they give. If you use a geothermal heat pump that means that you are not using a natural resource to heat and cool your home which means the resource, especially non-renewable resources, is being conserved for emergencies.
