About the event
Want to learn about geothermal heat pumps--a cheaper, cleaner way to heat your home? CUB has a great event for you!
We're partnering with the Midwest Renewable Energy Association to hold a joint Zoom session to answer questions about heat pumps and joining a local "geothermal group-buy" program, called Grow Geo Chicagoland.
The group-buy program is designed to educate consumers about geothermal, and for those interested in participating it secures a reliable contractor to install such systems at a volume-pricing discount. The Grow-Geo program also has a series of price breaks as the program hits participation benchmarks. Read more about the program here.
Geothermal heat systems are an energy efficient method for heating and cooling a home. Much like a refrigerator, heat pump systems utilize electricity to move heat from cool spaces to warm spaces and vice versa. In the case of geothermal heat pumps, they move heat from the ground to your home or from your home to the ground.
Because heat pump systems move heat rather than generate it, they are more cost-efficient. In fact, geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy costs by up to 70 percent compared to traditional systems.
