How do geothermal heat pumps work? Should I go with a closed or open loop system? How much does it cost? Tens of thousands of readers have found these answers in Kevin Rafferty’s ‘Geothermal Survival Kit’.
First released in 2001, the ‘Geothermal Survival Kit’ was updated in 2008. It’s a foundational document and a great entry point into the geothermal industry, so we asked Kevin to expand and revise the document in 2011, on the tenth anniversary of the original publication.
What’s new in the latest version? Details about state and federal incentives, expanded discussion on the closed v. open loop debate, updated AHRI data, along with dozens of small updates and improvements.
Many geothermal installers and designers use this document to help educate (and qualify) potential customers. However you plan to use it, we hope you enjoy it.
