A GHPcan serve both needs and actually improve overall system eciency by storing heat rom the summer in the ground or use in the winter.
GHPsoer an alternative to these high-cost uels. Signicant retrots, pri-marily the installation o ducts, can be required i electric baseboardsystems are replaced.
Withtax credits, accelerated depreciation, and USDA grant unding, aGHP is a very cost-eective investment.
Adding a GHPduring initial construction when excavation is required can signi-cantly lower initial costs.
GHPs can be coupled with on-gridsolar electric (photovoltaic) to power the pump and compressor.Tis makes the system entirely reliant on carbon-ree renewableenergy!
