Increasing demand for reduced fossil fuel consumption is creating business opportunities with geothermal heating and cooling systems
Increasing public demand for reduced fossil fuel consumption is creating growing business diversification opportunities with geothermal heating and cooling systems, according to presentations scheduled for the National Ground Water Association's (NGWA) "Geothermal and Horizontal Drilling Forum," Aug. 25 to 26, 2008 in Columbus, Ohio.
Using vertically drilled earth boreholes to connect heat pumps is a proven, reliable and efficient way to heat and cool buildings and homes of all sizes. Water well contractors, as well as HVAC professionals, consulting engineers, architects, planners, developers and others will learn from the technology's leading experts during this event.
Drilling technologies, large open loop systems, standing column well installations and reducing the nation's energy demands will be among topics features in this real-world forum on design, installation and equipment.
