American Dream Geothermal: Environmentally Friendly & Economically Sound
The American Dream ground source heat exchange system bears no harm to mother earth. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Our unit teams with nature and harnesses the very wheel-work that sustains the earth.
Heat is extracted(indirectly from the sun) from below the surface of the earth by means of conduction through the metal copper(the second most conductive metal, silver being the first). It is a perfectly clean, renewable, and brilliant alternative to traditional fossil based fuels for energy.
Our ground source heating system produces up to 6 units of energy for every 1 unit of energy consumed(600% efficient), while emitting absolutely no carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Heating/cooling in this manner will pay for itself in a very short amount of time, while drastically off-setting the amount of C02 you’re emitting. This technology is beyond “green”, so far beyond “green”, it’s clear. Can anyone really afford NOT to install a geothermal heat pump?
The heat pump is also environmentally friendly since no combustion occurs at the site where it is used.
Depending on the source of electrical supply (hydro electric for example) the transmission of energy from the power plant to the home is completely non-polluting to our environment. When the electricity used to operate the heat pump is produced from coal or oil the reduction in air pollution from sulfur and carbon dioxide is reduced by 65 to 75% since the power plant only has to produce 25 to 35% as much power to heat a home as it would if it supplied the same customer using electric baseboard heaters.
If you are concerned about the Climate Change Crisis, and wondering how to do your part, take a look at a few examples:
– Current geothermal systems save more then 14 million barrels of crude oil every year. And because the only energy needed the run geothermal systems is a small amount of electicity to run the pump, they reduce the need for new coal-powered electric power plants to be built.
– Installing a geothermal heating system in a typical home is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees, or taking two cars off the road.
– Geothermal currently provides the thermal equivalent of 600 million kWh a year and displaces the emission of 250,000 tonnes of green house gases.
