Geothermal energy is a renewable energy that is little used today. With it we can air condition and obtain domestic hot water in a sustainable way, taking advantage of the heat generated by the basement. Clean, efficient and renewable energy, which can be used both in existing buildings and in new constructions.
What is the goal ?
Dandelion seeks to eliminate or minimize the cost of heating or cooling our homes in both summer and winter. All using renewable, free, abundant and clean energy. This energy is geothermal.
By using high-performance equipment and low-cost installation, homeowners can protect the environment while saving money on conventional, dirtier heating and cooling methods.
a necessary advantage. 39% of carbon emissions in the United States come from burning fossil fuels in buildings.
The impact is much greater during the cold months, with heavy use of diesel and propane gas. In winter, the prices of these fuels increase significantly.
How is geothermal energy used for heating and cooling?
Using this geothermal system is cheaper and cleaner. Costs are reduced since the energy found in the land where the houses are located is used.
Cold air and hot air are produced thanks to the temperature difference between the surface and the basement, in summer it is colder and in winter it is warmer. This makes it possible to use this energy to achieve the necessary cooling or heating at a lower cost.
When we need to raise the temperature in our house, a heat pump absorbs it from the ground. This pump increases the temperature of the air and circulates it throughout the house.
If cool air is what you want, the pump extracts heat from the air, redistributes it to the ground and then cools the house.
Kathy Hannun is the co-founder of Dandelion. He wanted to develop a technology that would allow families to take advantage of geothermal energy. Be easier and cheaper than other systems.
Previously, the installation of this type of system was quite expensive and complicated. But the Dandelion team looked for a new, more accessible approach.
They designed a fast and slim drill, which allows without too much waste, to dig a hole and install the earth pipes. They do this job in just a few hours instead of three or four days like before, which significantly reduces installation costs.
Dandelion is currently an independent business. It can provide low cost installation and high performance equipment.
It provides homeowners with technology that saves money and moves away from conventional polluting fossil fuels, which have been used for heating for decades.
Geothermal energy is abundant, clean energy that helps take care of the planet.
