environmentally friendly. It does not produce dangerous omissions to the atmosphere therefore it does not interfere with the normal ecological system. Geothermal energy is a renewable source of power therefore its production in large scale comfortably meets energy needs of its users both at large scale, factories and institutions, and at small scale, homes and offices. (Rybach, 2017). Geothermal energy is also sustainable because it offers a quick payback to the resources pumped into its production. This means that it offers quick contribution to meeting economic goals. Heat pumps are devices used to transfer heat from one surrounding to another based on existing environmental conditions. Heat pumps are environmentally friendly as they do not emit harmful substances that contribute to air pollution. (Gilman, 2017). Heat pumps are budget friendly after their installation. Residential heat pumps are quiet in their operation they do not produce a lot of noise. Their durability nature allows heat pumps to meet the needs of its users

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
