Research on Geothermal Ground Heat Pumps For Residential Heating and Cooling

As part of my quest to become energy self-sufficient, I’ve learned a great deal about using geothermal ground pump systems for residential heating and cooling. I’m managing properties in Nevada, Alaska, and Connecticut and my goal is to make all of them energy self-sufficient – this means that I don’t have to pay utility bills to heat, cool, and power the properties. Right now with inflation exceeding the interest rate I can earn on my retirement funds and the stock market being about as smart a place to invest as a casino slot machine, there are no safe places to invest my retirement funds anyhow. Investing in making these properties energy self-sufficient looks like the best returns long term. Visit to see how to analyze payback scenarios for multiple energy self-sufficiency applications.

I’m researching geothermal ground heat pump applications in Alaska and Connecticut. There are three ways to access the heat in the ground – drill deep wells, run long horizontal pipes below the frost line where the ground temperature is a constant 60 degrees, and the third is to use the water from a pond (one that I trust does not freeze). I’m still researching the need for geothermal in Nevada as there is ample solar and wind power options on the Nevada site to cover the heating, cooling, and power requirements of the properties there.
