We struggled with the decision of whether to use geothermal energy in our new home. Although geothermal was on my husband's "must have" list, the price of it nearly took it off the list. After careful consideration of the local rebates and federal tax credits and more calculations, we decided to go for it. It will take many years to pay for geothermal, but we plan to be in our home long enough to see the benefits. In the meantime, we'll have a cost-effective and environmentally friendly heating and cooling system.
Digging of the well for the geothermal system is finally under way!
