ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the use of geothermal heat pumps or ground-source heat pumps in architecture (GHPs). It says that GHPs moves the thermal energy from below the earth and into a building, which reverse the process during summer by moving the building's heat down into the earth. According to the author, GHPs are significantly less expensive to operate compared to conventional cooling and heating systems. The differences of GHPs from geothermal power plants are also discussed.
