From the Ground Up

At 20 feet deep, the Earth has a constant temp of about 60 degrees. Using geothermal heat pumps and technology like DOWFROST heat transfer fluid, people can put this underground heat to use in their homes and businesses. In fact, 55 businesses in downtown Boise, Idaho are heated entirely from below.
