Sep 2 Sustainability Forum LUNCHEON SEMINAR: Geothermal Heat Pumps Shrink Energy Use…..

Title: Geothermal Heat Pumps Shrink Energy Use in Buildings & Significantly Reduce Carbon Footprint


Ground Source (geothermal) heat pumps eliminate the need for fossil fuels for heating and are nearly double the efficiency of other state-of-the-art air conditioning systems on the market. Geothermal systems are not as complicated as one might think – most of the infrastructure required is identical to traditional HVAC systems. This presentation will show how a geothermal system is installed through the use of video and photos from actual installations in Massachusetts. It will also provide data from local installations where 50 to 70% savings on annual heating and cooling costs have been realized. If you are looking for examples of how renewable energy products can minimize impact on climate change and save money, this session is for you.
