No Matter Where You
Are, You’re Standing on It

Looking up information on geothermal heat pump technology use results in some unexpected epiphanies, the first of which is the fast pace of global acceptance for geothermal heat pump (GHP) systems.

But first, the basics: A geothermal heat pump system uses the thermal energy in the ground (the “Energy Beneath Your feet”.) to deliver heating and cooling and water heating to the facility. Geothermal heat pump systems are energy efficient, renewable, reduce emissions, increase comfort and dramatically reduce energy bills.

In the US, it’s possible to call and order a geothermal installation from any state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

That’s the second epiphany: if this technology is available just underneath everyone’s feet, you should be able to use it even in the most remote corners of the world.

You can experience geothermal Technology at work anywhere in North America, where there’s a growing infrastructure of professionals, trained by the International Ground Source Heat Pm Association (IGSHPA) who can design, install and service GHP systems throughout the country.
