IN MY EFFORTS TO GET UNDERSTANDABLE and easy to read information in the hands of consumers on green technologies, it is refreshing to see an affordable book come out on geothermal heating and cooling technologies.
“Geo Power” is just that; affordable, understandable and richly illustrated.
Geo Power effectively explains movement of heat rather than combustion for heat. The mind that grasps the concepts behind geothermal heat pumps becomes an instant convert for life. Lloyd’s “Geo Power” from PixyJack Press is under $20, and has awesome illustrations that help to explain clearly how geothermal heat pumps operate, and how consumers can take advantage of the technology.
When I received my copy, the first thing that caught my eye was the great illustrations. Don Lloyd goes into explanations on his successful efforts to explain added value of geothermal heating and cooling to his bank, increasing his property value. He shares insight on Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and Coefficient of Performance (COP) and how they correlate. And, if you want to know some of the science behind “moving heat”, you’ll come away enriched.
As a matter of fact, Don Lloyd’s book, “Geo Power” may be the first thing an individual considering geothermal should purchase in pursuit of help to really understand geothermal heating and cooling.
I believe that after reading through its pages, it will become clear to the reader that geothermal heating and cooling is the best way to reduce energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions, and increase the comfort in our homes and buildings, period.
Get on the GEO Bandwagon!
Let’s get involved! Industry Stakeholders have created a website with vast resources to educate the public on geothermal heat pumps. The “Geothermal Day” website http://www.geothermalday.com/ aims to raise awareness about environmental and economic benefits of geothermal energy and its vital role in building a clean and secure energy future.
We are inviting industry partners, communities, businesses and educators to join efforts to advance further understanding and acceptance of geothermal technology as an unlimited, renewable form of energy. Join us by co-creating and sharing educational resources and participating in interactive activities in local communities and on-line.
“Within your lifetime, the house you live in will probably be heated and cooled by geothermal energy.”
See you there!
