An excellent alternative to air conditioning is becoming more affordable -- geothermal cooling systems. I became familiar with geothermal systems when the board of a local library decided to go that route with a new building it was having constructed. Geothermal systems can either heat or cool and are powered by the heat stored in the earth. Geothermal systems aren’t new. The Romans used geothermal systems (albeit less sophisticated ones than today’s) to heat their homes thousands of years ago.
Currently, if you decide to buy a geothermal system, you can also apply for tax credits that make your investment even more economical.
So, you too can be like some of your favorite celebs and have a healthier life and environment by turning off the AC.
