Should I buy a geothermal heat pump?

Gas prices just keep going up, don’t they? It makes me wish I had one of those electric cars, but who has the money? As of late I have been thinking a lot about money.

  • There are so many things we have to buy a little at a time, so we don’t have much leeway in saving money on it.

Take gasoline, for example. You see those idiots filling up garbage bags with gasoline, and I understand where they are coming from in trying to save money, but it’s still stupid. Gas, like electricity, is only purchased a little at a time, which is why I have been thinking about investing in a geothermal heat pump. A geothermal heat pump draws upon an endless power supply – the geothermal energy generated by the earth itself. Just like solar power and wind power, geothermal power is limitless, and once you can harness it you can essentially use it for free forever. With that in mind, you might be wondering why everyone doesn’t use a geothermal heat pump – that is because of the cost. It is not cheap to acquire a geothermal heat pump, so you have to look at it like an investment. It will save you so much money on utility bills over the long term, but you might need to spend 10 years worth of energy costs all in one lump sum just to get the geothermal heat pump. I am still debating whether or not to get a geothermal heat pump, because it would require taking out a loan from the bank.
