I love to do my part to protect one’s destiny on our planet. I try and minimize energy waste whenever I can and minimize my contribution to the landfills. I recycle all plastic and glass containers, compost report and food waste, and ride my bicycle everywhere. I heat and cool my home which includes a geothermal heating pump and overcome my electrical needs with sun power panels. The solar panels were a good investment and easily put in. Despite living in the northeastern part of the country, I use the solar panels for power all year round. The geothermal heating pump also provides effective operation despite the season. It gets the relatively stable temperature found underground, and takes advantage of the free energy source. There is a loop system buried inside my backyard which connects to an electrical heating pump installed inside my home. This heating and cooling operation produces more energy than it would take and achieves four hundred percent efficiency levels. It only uses a minimal amount of electricity to run the heating pump, which is provided by the solar panels. It costs me almost nothing to keep my home at the ideal temperature regularly. Plus, the solar panels and geothermal HVAC system create no greenhouse gas emissions which could damage the ozone. Although the purchase and setup of the geothermal heating pump was quite expensive, I have recovered from the investment in under three years. I am now saving a large amount of money, enjoying comfort inside my home, I have extra money to spend on anything I want, and I’m appearing environmentally responsible.
