Living off the grid with our geothermal heat pump

Living out on our own, off the grid as they say, has long been a dream of mind! I’m not big into social media, and appreciate to just be left alone and not tracked by our debit cards.

I have always wanted a place out in the middle of nowhere, a place of our own where I could grow our own food, dig our own well, and generate our own energy.

I don’t want to live a primitive life, I just want to do it on our own terms! None of this would legitimately be feasible without the use of a geothermal heat pump, but because of this geothermal heat pump I don’t have to rely on anyone else to keep our lights on, and our heat running. The earth is a limitless source of power, and this heating pump pulls that from the ground and to store in power cells. These power cells can keep our humble cottage powered and moderate for weeks on end, which gives me an independence few people know. I know a lot of other people who live in the woods “live off the land” and eschew current conveniences appreciate temperature control and our laptop. I myself see no reason to sacrifice temperature control and comfort just to be contrary to civilization. This way I get the best of both worlds, the peace and solitude of rural life, and the convenience of current living, all thanks to our geothermal heat pump. These heat pumps are a little expensive, but to me it was worth every single penny.
