Going Green: Geothermal Retrofit

Description

Installing a geothermal heating/cooling system is very challenging in an older neighborhood. Two wells 300 feet deep must be drilled in cramped quarters while avoiding water pipelines and utilities. The goal is to use the constant temperature of the earth, 50 degrees, to help cool the house in the summer and help heat it during the winter.
