Cooling and Energy Efficient Technology

I am sure people living in and around Phoenix, Arizona would agree with me when I say that summer is quite hot in this area. I know this because one of my good friends resides in this area and he always spoke about the hot summer that he faces in the months of May and June. So, for this year, I have decided to help him with the need to cool his home with the help of technology and also to ensure that he uses energy efficient systems so that it also contributes to the betterment of the environment and helps to go green. So, me and my friend started to search how technology helps keep one's place cool and at the same time conserves energy. Air conditioning was not the definite answer because there is too much of energy usage in it.

Whilst our search continued, we suddenly bumped upon the concept of geothermal cooling which was quite new to us and so we were quite excited to read about it and make ourselves familiar with it. So here is what we understood. The concept of geothermal air conditioning is where in one can make use of the geothermal energy stored in the earth to convert that geothermal energy into heat or cooling. We were quite excited about this and my friend is now looking forward to adopt this technology for his home and keep his home cool during the summer and also to make use of a geothermal heat pump to keep his home warm during the winter.
