Nick Pryputniewicz, mechanical engineer, of NP Environmental, will speak on the basics of geothermal systems, components, costs and incentives. He will offer information on site evaluations, energy audits, price and value and system performance.
A solution to high energy costs is buried underground, organizers said.
Geothermal pumps can provide clean, quiet heating and cooling while cutting utility bills by up to 70 percent. The earth’s temperature stays at a constant 50 degrees independent of how hot or cold it is outside. Deep wells may also be an option if space and lateral loops do not fit the property plan.
