I make sure to do my part to protect the future of our planet. I always minimize energy waste whenever conceivable and minimize my contribution to landfills. I recycle all plastic and glass containers, compost cardstock and food waste, and ride my bicycle most of the time. I heat and cool my home by having a geothermal heating pump and work with my electrical needs with solar power systems. The solar panels were an unusually reasonable investment and easily applied. Despite living in the northeastern part of the main country, I can depend upon the solar panels for power all year long. The geothermal heating pump also provides effective operation despite the season. It draws from the temperature found underground and takes advantage of the free power source. There is a loop system buried inside my backyard which links to an electrical heating pump installed inside the house. This heating and cooling process produces more energy than it requires and achieves four hundred percentage efficiency levels. It only draws a small amount of electricity to run the heating pump, which is provided by the solar panels. It costs me virtually nothing to maintain my home at the ideal temperature constantly. Plus, the solar panels in addition to geothermal HVAC system create no greenhouse gas emissions which will damage the ozone. Although the purchase and setup with the geothermal heating pump were pricey, I have definitely made my money back in less than three years. I am now saving a large amount of cash, enjoying perfect comfort within my home, and I’m becoming environmentally responsible.
