Geothermal House Heating

Last weekend I met with one of my uncles who is a carpenter. He usually work on huge custom houses for
people who can afford them in the Quebec city area. He was telling me an interesting fact, which is that most houses he built in the last years was equiped with geothermal heating systems. Although more environmentally friendly than oil or electricity heating, they have a huge upfront cost, about $20,000. The process of digging the small and deep hole is apparently quite complicated. It shows again, that a lot of environmentally friendly technologies are still for the most fortunate.

He was also telling me that the new fashion for kitchens was to get two dishwashers installed, one clean, one dirty.
