Hi Folks. I was known before as AmericanPit. I've spent quite a bit of time all over the country, over the course of the past several months, and as a result I've forgotten my everything...including my passwords. I've decided just starting from scratch would suffice, so now there is a "CarbonPit" where there used to be an "AmericanPit". (The CarbonPit seems to be much lower maintenance...TeeHeeHee) Okay, so I punched MYSELF in the eye for that one!!!
Anyway, we decided to start bidding jobs out-of-state to ,well, you know. I've trippled proffits this way, but being the only person with the credentials and knowhow to design our systems, which proved challenging at first due to the fact that geothermal requirments differ from region to region, pretty much ended my social life for a while. I've hired a couple other geothermal specialists recently, so guess who gets to live again?...Yep, you got it - ME!!!
Now that I'm finished crying about my pitiful social life ( Or the lack thereof ) I guess I can express what I've noticed changed since I've been gone (This won't take long); Weakness4puppies has changed handles as well. Well, there you have it...DONE. Yup, she's the only thing/person I paid attention to, obviously!!! Cool lady, that's all.
So, that was all. Plenty of other cool people in here, by-the-way, with a wealth of info on our breeds, and I for one appreciate you ALL.

First of all, Thanks for the re-welcome, guys! LuvUbull, I mean, Luvabull, you could change your user name twenty times and I'd know it was you! ( I've got this knack for YOU! )
Anyway, in answer to the last post; Explaining the entire Geothermal concept would take way too long, and probably make people hate me, so I'll give you this; Basically, Geothermal is a method of heating&cooling, suitable mainly just for comfort, i.e residential and office enviornments, although is often used in many other situations. This method of heating and cooling derives it's thermal energy from what we call a "Groundloup" system, which is a fairly complexed network of piping installed under the ground in proximity to the space to be conditioned, such as, your home. The reason this is able to work is that, several feet down below the frostline, the ground pretty much maintains a constant temp. year-round, which is why in the summer, in hot regions, a cave feels so cool, and in the winter so warm.
The piping network absorbs this natural energy and transfers it to the home in a condensed form, where it is extracted, much in the way that a standard "HEATPUMP" functions, giving you heat in the winter, and cool in the summer. However, unlike a standard heatpump, this method continues to perform well below zero, making it a much better system. These are very expenssive systems initially, but money well spent over the course of several years, as they opperate at a fraction of the cost of conventional gas/electric systems.
Well, there you have it. I wish there were an easier way to explain it all, but I was raised south of the Ohio River (Kentucky) so the fact that I'm able to spell my own name is a small wonder, much less give a lucid explaination of Geothermal methods :lol: Nah, we Kentucky folks generally have a little more On-The-Ball than most folks give us credit for. Heck, just last week I started using a pencil to sign my checks instead of a crayon! I guess that may have something to do with the fact that I now live in Indiana?!...

Yes, I own it, and I have two of my brothers who run the crews. It's gotten complicated at times, especially of late, due to the aggragate needed, and the density differences in soil in other regions throughout the the states, but it's not as tough as it may seem. I guess it's like most things...Practice makes, well, something as close to perfect as we can get.
Lots of heavy equipment involved, so that part gets taxing. Out-of-state permits, liability, these kinds of things can set a person to pulling their hair out! ( That is, if said person had hair, which I do not (By choice) so I guess I have that advantage!!!)

Well, since I don't know you (I'm newer here - since Dec 24th-ish), I just wanted to say hi, and welcome or in your case welcome back!
