Propane shortages are contributing to skyrocketing prices and rations in many parts of the country. Many homeowners are feeling anxiety about whether they'll make it to the next fill-up—and if so, how much it will cost. This is no longer simply a financial strain; it's become emotional for millions of people. Unfortunately, for many rural homeowners, there are few alternatives to propane for heating. Natural gas is often unavailable and air source heat pumps lose efficiency as temperatures drop—making them least efficient when they need to be the most efficient.
A geothermal heat pump (GHP) uses the constant temperatures stored in the earth to provide ultra-efficient conditioning (regardless of outdoor weather) and is the ideal option for those struggling with the increase in fuel prices.
