Information Survival Kit for the Prospective Geothermal Heat Pump Owner

The fact that you are considering a geothermal (or ground-source) heat pump system, places you among the best informed and most innovative homeowners in the country. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), although not a new technology, remain a small (but growing) player in the residential
heating/cooling sector. Although somewhat higher in first cost, this technology can, in the right
application, quickly repay this cost premium through savings in energy costs.
