ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role of geothermal energy in heating homes all over the U.S. during winter. In 1993, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published a report stating that geothermal heat pumps as heating systems that have great energy efficient, low costs, and clean emissions. Geothermal heat pumps have been providing warmth in homes and buildings all over the U.S. including the Greenwich Audubon Center and Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.
