Geothermal Energy

I had always thought that geothermal energy came from hot springs. The hot water that blasts forth from Old Faithful was the image in my mind when the phrase came up.

The owner of Atlas L.C. Heating and Air Conditioning, Rob Gault, taught me that the earth does not have to spew hot water for us to take advantage of geothermal energy.

You see the ground is always about 55 degrees year round. So when its 45 degrees outside we can use the ground to warm us up, and when its 95 degrees outside we can use the ground to cool us off. How great it that?

Atlas has the trademarked “Ground Hog” geothermal heat pump which takes advantage of the fact that the ground is always giving us that 55 degree energy year round. I can’t pretend to understand how it works. To me it’s magic.
