Heat pumps – why aren’t my friend and I all using them

My entire life growing up I remember being uncomfortable, and literally.

My mom was an seriously stringent woman, as well as my friend and I didn’t have much currency to labor with anyways.

As such, my friend and I absolutely were not allowed to too many household Comforts in my adolescence. For instance, I remember her yelling at us for leaving on lights. Sure, do not leave on a light if you leave the room, however she literally would yell at you for using a light while you were laying underneath it. She would ask if it was absolutely necessary that you use that electricity when you could truly pull out a flashlight as well as somehow dangle it from your teeth as well as study. She also never wanted to run the central heating as well as cooling system. As an adult I totally understand. As a child, I was pretty frustrated with being miserably cold all winter season as well as disgustingly tepid all summer. She absolutely would only run the boiler when it dropped below 20 degrees outside. She only wanted to run the cooling system if the humidity was above 100%..; Raining, essentially. As an adult now, I am a bit confused about why my friend and I didn’t just find a better Heating as well as Cooling solution. For instance, I just recently learned about these things called geothermal heat pumps. Maybe you have not heard of them, cuz I had no idea that this form of heating as well as cooling existed. These are little systems that connect deep down underneath the ground as well as funnel energy back as well as forth from your household as well as the dirt. If the ground is warm, the energy flows into your house as well as heats it. If the ground is cold, the energy flows from your household as well as cools it. The best part is, there’s no energy expenditure. This means my mom would have had no excuse to freeze or burn us alive. I guess hindsight is 20/20.
