Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy--which literally means “energy from the heat of the earth”--has been a staple of society for centuries.  Some archaeological studies suggest that Native American tribes utilized hot springs and pools for bathing, cooking, and heating going back thousands of years.  From the bathhouses of ancient Rome to the medicinal thermal springs of 5th century China, geothermal has been a major source of energy throughout the world.  Beneath the ground, roughly 10 meters down, temperature variations of the season cease to be a concern--so geothermal heat pumps can be used pretty much everywhere. 

Beat the Heat with a Dehumidifier

Step outside on a scorching summer day in the South and you’ll notice something particular about the lower states.  As we are all fond of saying, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity!”  Sure, it may be over a hundred degrees in California, but they don’t have it as bad as we do!  Down here, the air outside isn’t just hot, it’s heavy.  It’s thick.  It’s miserable at times.

More on Samsung Mini Splits

This week, we are featuring Samsung’s Residential Mini-Split Systems.  These are a great way to provide your home with an energy-efficient cooling system that doesn’t completely bust your wallet!  While a central air conditioning unit can require loads of ductwork to be added to your home--which can be exorbitantly expensive--these mini-splits are a completely duct free system. 

Don't Take Your AC for Granted

It is easy to take the wonder of modern air conditioning for granted.  After decades of readily available cooling systems, most Americans cannot even comprehend of a day when the A/C was not a part of their day to day lives.  Through our homes, our offices, restaurants and theatres, our cars and our workshops flows artificially cooled air--a feat that would have seemed miraculous even 100 years ago.
