The United States needs to get serious about becoming energy independent by 2016, according to a report issued by the Advanced Energy Center. This organization studies energy use and trends throughout the country and was alarmed to discover that half of the energy sources in the United States today are imported from other countries. The Advanced Energy Center established the goal of becoming energy independent by July 4, 2016 out of concern for our nation’s vulnerability. If other countries run out of energy sources or become hostile to the United States, people in Longview, Texas and nationwide would pay the price.

Geothermal heating and cooling has become a popular way to provide indoor comfort without draining energy resources. It involves placing a tubing system six feet below your property line to extract warm air and pipe it into your home. Some other popular choices for alternative sources of energy include fuel cells, solar energy and wind power. They are becoming more commonplace all the time, which helps homeowners contain costs and the country conserve its energy sources. JD’s Air Now would be happy to discuss all of your options during a home energy audit.
