A straight-talking book on why ground-source heat pumps (GHPs) are the best choice for heating and cooling new or existing homes in any climate and how this reliable, silent, non-polluting way of extracting free energy from the earth saves money year after year. Ideal for homeowners, anyone training for the geothermal industry, and home-building partners (architects, builders, lenders, inspectors).
