Abstract

In an effort to take advantage of the Earth’s renewable resources, more people have been turning to geothermal and solar energy systems to heat and cool indoor environments. With advances in technology, humans can now harness the Earth’s natural ability to produce heated air and water. Ground source heat pumps use Earth’s constant underground temperatures to manipulate indoor temperatures. Other space heating systems that are able to heat and cool buildings use solar energy. Hydronic systems, which use radiation from heated water, can also be used for heating homes and buildings. This project will compare how different types of heating and cooling systems have developed over time and examine the benefits and impacts of each one.
