Drill several holes with pipes running up to 250 feet down to absorb the heat of the planet to heat homes. All it would take is electric for the pumps to move the water used (closed loop system to limit pollution) a heat exchanger and a fan to move the air? Or would it just trade pollution at one site for pollution at another?
Isn’t the expense of geothermal more up front while the expense of the conventional heating system over the life of the unit?
