(UNDATED) - Hoosier homeowners concerned about the environment and rising cost of fuel can participate in a program that will help them replace their traditional heating and cooling system with a geothermal heat pump.

The Indiana Office of Energy and Defense Development has been given $500-thousand dollars to help residents make the switch.

Program Manager Paul Cummings says a geothermal heat pump uses the natural heat storage capacity of the earth to provide energy efficient heating and cooling. The unit draws warmth from the earth to heat a home in winter, while discharging hear into the ground in the summer. Because a GHP moves heat instead of creating it, it uses less energy to heat a home.

The amount of the rebate for each home will be based on the size of the GHP system installed, with a maximum rebate of 2000 dollars per installation.

You can apply for the rebate by visiting www.energy.in.gov.
