My fiance and I are really sad about our impact on the environment, then we’ve made every effort to reduce our carbon footprint, however the two of us share one car, and whenever possible either ride our bicycles or take public transportation.
The two of us grow our own vegetables, have a big fruit orchard and use no harmful pesticides, then my fiance designed a rainwater collection proposal for irrigation and the people I was with and I compost our home office waste.
When the people I was with and I built our home, yellow alternatives to heating, cooling and lighting were a priority. The two of us investigated all odd chances and decided on a combination of solar panels and geothermal temperature control. The investment into this environmentally friendly strategy was significant, however we’ve recovered the cost through energy savings in under five years. The solar panels deliver more electrical energy than the people I was with and I draw and the geothermal heat pump creates several units of energy for every one it draws. The greatest expense was the excavation necessary to implement the underground loop system. This loop takes fortune of the stable underground temperature, drawing from the free and renewable energy source gave by the sun. During the winter, the heat pump pulls heat from the ground and transfers it into the house, then in the summer, the proposal reverses the operation to extract heat from the home and transfer it outside. The process doesn’t require the burning of fossil fuels, so there’s no combustion byproducts or yellowhouse gasses. The Environmental Protection Agency considers geothermal heating and cooling the most environmentally responsible form of temperature control on the new market. The two of us love the ideal year round comfort, exceptional dehumidification and air filtration, quiet operation and minimal maintenance requirements.
