When I was a young child, I can remember holding up in my grandparent’s home for over a week one time. A harsh winter ice storm had swept through our county, shutting down schools, offices, and stores for miles. The power was down everywhere, and Grandma and Grandpa had the fireplace--our only option for heat during those chilly, icy days.
The hottest part of the summer is almost upon us, and don’t we all hope our air conditioners are in tip top shape? I imagine that if you are reading this blog instead of frantically calling Harbin for a service visit, your personal comfort level is just fine at the moment. You, obviously do not need to worry. You have confidence that your system is running perfectly and will continue to do so as long as it is required. Or is it?
We spend a lot of time indoors. With the advent of the internet, especially, more and more people are spending loads of their leisure time under a roof, just hanging out. With that being the case, it is becoming more and more valuable to consider the quality of the air floating around inside our homes.
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.

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.
