This book is truly helpful to home owners, commercial business owners and installers looking to know more about this fantastic technology.
I had been considering installing a geothermal heat pump system for a few years but I didn't feel like I knew enough about the technology to make the leap. This book gave me the information I needed and I knew that investing in this technology was definitely the route I wanted to take. So, about 6 weeks ago I took the plunge and contacted the two geothermal installers in my area for bids. During our meetings I felt like I had the knowledge and understanding about the topic to be able to converse with them and I understood the terminology they were using. I felt informed and confident conversing about the subject. Anyways, I choose one of the installers (again, the book helped me know which would be best depending on the brands they offered and certifications they had).
I've had my new HVAC system for a little over a week now and we are loving it! The unit is super quiet (we never hear the air kick on or off), the temperature seems more stable throughout the day, and it takes up less space than my old system. I haven't received my first electric bill since the installation but I'm expecting to see quite a drop! Overall, I've become a total believer in this technology. I've had a very successful experience and the book helped guide me through it all. 5 stars from me!

It's the surface of the subject. You won't be able to do nothing with this. I'm happy than the book is not expensive.Published on Dec 11 2011 by Jrl
