Geothermal Heat Pump and Photovoltaic panels in Syracuse, New York

The threat of climate change was the strongest motivating factor for investing in a geothermal heat pump as well as rooftop solar photovoltaic electricity at this house in the Tipperary Hill section of the city. This case illustrates that geothermal energy is possible on a small lot in a tight space. The vertical wells were drilled in a small area on the front lawn and in the driveway. The homeowner was able to use the geothermal system to provide heat for radiant heat floors and air heating and cooling. The home owner is extremely pleased with the result of the project, noting that he is very satisfied at being able to move closer to having a net zero energy home.
