Why geothermal is a hot trend in new condos
Many condominiums being designed and built right now in Canada are greener than their predecessors — not just from the ground up but also deep down. That’s because many are turning to fossil fuel-free geothermal or geoexchange technology for their heating and cooling. While most geothermal systems in the past 40 years have been installed in single-family homes, those in the industry say growth in the market is now driven by condominiums. “That market is increasing and actually increasing very, very quickly right now,” said Stanley Reitsma, president of the Ontario Geoexchange Association.
