Overview The Geothermal Air Conditioning System is an innovative method of utilizing energy from the earth beneath our feet in such a way that one’s home will maintain a comfortable temperature year-round, without the high cost of electricity. EnerGEO Enterprises is developing this system as a way to save customers money as well as be environmentally friendly through this sustainable energy source. The System will be installed by drilling a well in the ground to a reservoir of water that is maintained at a constant temperature underground. This water would then be pumped upwards and circulate through the walls of the house, and finally returning to the reservoir where it will return to the initial temperature.
