This is Murray. ... In the winter of 2006 Murray Schlotzhauer received a home heating bill of more than $800 one month for his country place near Stratford, Ontario. He began pondering the possibility that his oil furnace was not his friend. The case got stronger when he noticed a mess on the basement floor, wiped it up, and realized that the black substance on the mop was oil. ... “We wanted to get that smelly oil tank out of here. People said geothermal created nice even heat; and provides air conditioning too.” Buchanan & Hall helped them confirm that geothermal would be a good investment for their property. A geothermal heat pump helps collect and intensify the ground warmth or cooling energy, using a very small amount of electricity. It creates luxurious, healthy indoor air quality very affordably, while eliminating most of the system’s greenhouse gas footprint. ... “After two years with the geothermal system I phoned Buchanan & Hall and asked about maintenance. They sent someone over to look at the pressure levels and I received a bill for about $100. Since then, nothing…Now I spend about $350 on electricity for heating and cooling, compared with $800 or so previously for oil. This is a much better situation. Because don’t forget,” says Murray with a twinkle in his eye, “I’m just a poor hog farmer.” ...
