Re: [hreg] Geothermal cooling/heating?
- My partner Sam and I just gave some presentations for the an Engineers Without Borders seminar discussing many aspects of renewable energy and various available technologies including Geothermal. We have posted on our website www.alternateenergycentral.com the power point slides from this presentation. If you look into the Geothermal pack it discusses how well the Geothermal systems work here and gives some cost and energy savings estimates to start from.
If you have any questions about the slides please let me know.

It works great, but can be expensive. It is very efficient. And the units are getting more efficient.Air Cool is one company to try http://www.aircoola c.com/. You can talk to Robert Milner.The general rule of thumb is one well per ton, and the wells need to be space 15 to 20 feet apart. You can see if your property is big enough.You might consider also pricing the best traditional system you can afford – a 21 seer system is less expensive than a geothermal system, and then you can spend the money on other improvements.Good luck!

Subject: [hreg] Geothermal cooling/heating?Has anyone installed or using a geothermal cooling/heating system for their residence? If so, does it work well in the Houston area? What benefits and disadvantages have you experienced? Do you know of a recommended supplier that could help us get a system running at our house?Jeanette
