Bought Thermocore portable air conditioner with heat pump. 11,000 BTU heat pump uses 1250 watts. Partly runs off my solar panels and Im still 300$ ahead on my electric bill from summer solar. So far Im stoked. Free clean heat with no wood mess. More solar next.

I just built a 40x50 insulated shop over the top of my well. The water level is at 80 feet. My well cap has 2 extra unused caps on it. I intend to drop 60 feet of pipe in it with a small computer fan blowing out and see if I can use some geothermal to heat and cool also

A rocket mass heater is the most sustainable way to heat a conventional home
