Geothermal Energy

We Think....

Geothermal Energy is energy from the earth. We don't think that we should be using this energy. This is because it costs so much to be put in, and it takes so long for it see a difference in the bill. Is it really worth waiting 5 to 10 years to start to see a difference in the amount you pay. Also it takes $10,000- $20,000 to put the pump in. I don't think that is worth this amount of money. Also, it only works in the newer houses. There needs to be more research done on this energy before you install it into your house.

Pros & Cons

We might be against this energy, but there are some good side. Some of these are:

  • not much pollution

  • it is 30% cheaper that actual heat
Where we are against this energy, this is why we don't think that you should get it.

  • it is more suitable for new homes
  • it take electricity to power it, even though we are trying to save electricity
  • it also take a lot of money to put a pump in
