Hi there dummy!
"Fact: They work just as effectively in cooling and can be engineered to require no additional backup heat source if desired,---> although some customers decide that it is more cost effective to have a small backup system <--- for just the coldest days if it means their loop can be smaller."
http://energyblog.nationalgeographic.com/2013...
So how may heat exchangers have you installed moron?
So, they may need help if the purchaser DECIDES to install a too small loop system system.
What kind of moron would do that??
My loops are two holes at 375 foot deep or 750 feet.
Say $12 a foot ( I paid $8) the total cost is about $9k.
So some moron decides that he only wants 600 feet & buys another HVAC system to save $1800 or to save $7.50 a month over 20 years??
Maybe if they were as stupid as you.
I have never installed an motor in my pick up truck, it doesn't mean I don't know how they work. I know lots of people that have installed a new battery in their vehicle that have no clue how they work - you know, like you with your heat pumps & not knowing why a air to air heat pump performs differently that geothermal ground loops.
Geothermal HVAC do not require an alternative HVAV system to help it perform properly. Something you said was not the case in colder climates.

The Corbett administration's decision not to expand Medicaid under the new federal health-care law will result in an additional 400-1,500 deaths in Pennsylvania a year, nearly 13,000 additional families with catastrophic medical expenses and tens of thousands of cases of untreated depression, diabetes and missed screening tests, according to a study published Thursday.

Gathered by researchers from Harvard University and the City University of New York, the estimates show that in the states that opted out of expanding Medicaid, 7,000-17,000 additional deaths will occur among people who would have been covered had expansion been supported.

"We predict that many low-income women will forego recommended breast and cervical cancer screening; diabetics will forego medications and all low-income adults will face a greater likelihood of depression, catastrophic medical expenses and death," researchers wrote in the study, which was released on the website of the journal Health Affairs.

"We calculated the number and characteristics of people who will remain uninsured as a result of their state's opting out of the Medicaid expansion, and applied these figures to the known effects of insurance expansion from prior studies," lead author Samuel Dickman said. "The results were sobering. Political decisions have consequences, some of them lethal."

We really need to stick a fork in this pig called Obamacare.

The UCA is now being altered unilaterally by the Dictator Obama, yet another extension.

It's a Trojan horse.

Nothing has turned out the way Obama and the Democrats said.

You can keep your insurance if you like it! WRONG.

It will save money. WRONG.

The list goes on and on.

There is no global warming and will be none for decades
By Alan Caruba
I recently received an unsigned email about my Sierra Club commentary in which I pointed out that it opposes traditional forms of energy and made a passing reference to Obama's lie that "climate change," the new name for global warming, was now "settled science."
Global warming was never based on real science. It was conjured up using dubious computer models and we were supposed to believe that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change could actually predict what the climate would be twenty, fifty, or a hundred years from now.
The writer of the email disagreed with me. "lol you are a f**king idiot. you don't believe there is global warming going on? you need to let your prejudices go and stop basing your views on what your political stance is...do you research you f**king faggot."
Now, not everyone who believes in global warming is as rude as this individual and certainly not as ignorant, but his message suggests that those who do not believe in it do so as the result of "a political stance" when, in fact, our views are based on science.
Anyone familiar with my writings knows that a lot of research is involved. In my case, it dates back to the late 1980s when the global warming hoax began to be embraced by politicians like Al Gore who made millions selling worthless "carbon credits" while warning that "Earth has a fever."
A small army of scientists lined their pockets with government grants to produce data that supported the utterly baseless charge that carbon dioxide was causing the Earth to warm. They castigated other scientists or people like myself as "deniers" while we proffered to call ourselves sceptics. They were joined by most of the media that ignored the real science. And the curriculums in our schools were likewise corrupted with the hoax.
Then, about 17 years ago the Earth began to cool. It had nothing to do with carbon dioxide – which the Environmental Protection Agency deems a "pollutant" despite the fact that all life on Earth would die without it – and everything to do with the SUN.
A few days after the email arrived, two-thirds of the contiguous U.S.A. was covered by snow. As this is being written, Lake Superior is 92% frozen, setting a new record. As of February 5, the entire Great Lakes system was, according to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, 77% covered with ice.
On February 1st, NOAA and NASA held a joint press conference in which they released data about 2013's global surface temperature. They made reference to a "pause" in the temperature that began in 1997. Dr. David Whitehouse, science editor for the BBC, noted that "When asked for an explanation for the 'pause' by reporters, Dr. Gavin Schmidt of NASA and Dr. Thomas Karl of NOAA spoke of contributions from volcanoes, pollution, a quiet Sun, and natural variability. In other words, they don't know."
Both of these government agencies, along with others like the EPA and the Department of the Interior are staffed by people who understand that their employers are deeply committed to the global warming hoax. One should assume that almost anything they have to say about the "pause" is based entirely on politics, not science.
Then, too, despite the many measuring stations from which data is extracted to determine the Earth's climate, there is a paucity of such stations in COLD places like Siberia. Stations here in the U.S. are often placed in "heat islands" otherwise known as cities. If you put enough of them close to sources of heat, you get thermometer readings that produce, well, heat.

People in the U.S., England, Europe and other areas of the world who do not possess Ph.ds in meteorology, climatology, geology, astronomy, and chemistry have begun to suspect that everything they have been told about global warming is false. Between 1300 and 1850 the northern hemisphere went through a mini-ice age. After that it began to warm up again. So, yes, there was global warming, but it was a natural cycle, not something caused by human beings.

Nature doesn't care what we do. It is far more powerful than most of us can comprehend.

This brings us back to the Sun which determines, depending on where you are on planet Earth, how warm or cold you feel. The Sun, too, goes through cycles, generally about eleven years long. When it is generating a lot of heat, its surface is filled with sunspots, magnetic storms.

When there are few sunspots, solar radiation diminishes and we get cold. Scientists who study the Sun believe it may encounter another "Maunder minimum," named after astronomer Edward Maunder, in which the last "Little Ice Age," between 1645 and 1715, occurred. The Thames in England froze over as did the canals of Holland froze solid.

There is no global warming and scientists like Henrik Svensmark, the director of the Center for Sun-Climate Research at Denmark's National Space Institute, believes that "World temperatures may end up a lot cooler than now for 50 years or more." I agree.

Well, that ray of sunshine didn't last long. House Republicans' encouraging tilt toward immigration reform, complete with a statement of principles conceding that even immigrants without documents who meet certain criteria should be able to "live legally and without fear in the U.S.," survived for just one week.

It took one week for heated backlash from anti-immigration stalwarts in the House and around the country to prompt Speaker John Boehner into backtracking.[...] Boehner's capitulation to the GOP's die-hards is deeply disappointing. It was also brazenly insincere.[...]

Rarely has a party been so stubbornly in denial about the need to reach out to a wider base.

States who opted out of Obamacare are now going to be forced to comply because of the Obamacare gap.

So a massive and incompetent federal government wins again.

This law is designed to punish individuals and businesses for not obeying and complying. Just what the Founding Fathers had in mind.
An overbearing federal government forcing its will upon the people to purchase a flawed product and inflict punishment if any rebellion creating chaos and confusion.

No wonder Obama keeps delaying his own law at will. It's doomed to fail. But there are elections to win in the meantime.

ummmm...all the states had the option to form their own exchanges the way they wanted to. they all knew the feds would set up the exchange for them if they didn't.

how are the products flawed or any different from the other private company insurance policies people buy? same companies...

you are just parroting lies you don't even understand, clearly....
