Geothermal Heating & Cooling - Another Solution
The constant temperature and 'infinite' heat of subsurface earth makes geothermal heat pump technology an ideal solution for heating and cooling your Cape home. It's a technology that has had only a few 'takers', but I believe that we'll see more and more homes equipped with geothermal heat pumps. The claimis possible savings of up to 80%. Additionally, there is, currently, a 30% federal tax credit for these systems. ClimateMaster, one of several geothermal heat pump manufacturers, has a fairly educational website with technology tutorials and tax credit information.
