–It’s August and winter is practically upon us. Christmas will be here before we know it. With Santa Claus and Turkeyday comes the cold. Projections from AccuWeather.com are going to take a little warming up to. The AccuWeather.com Long-Range Forecasting Team is predicting another brutally cold and snowy winter for a large part of the country, thanks in large part to La Niña… yet again. La Niña, a phenomenon that occurs when sea surface temperatures across the equatorial central and eastern Pacific are below normal, is what made last year’s winter so awful for the Midwest and Northeast. Monster blizzards virtually shut down the cities of New York and Chicago. Last winter was one of New York City’s snowiest on record. Check out more of AccuWeather’s prophecy here, and call Butch today to make sure your furnace is ready for the winter.

–An expansion project at a Greenwood manufacturing facility will use geothermal technology to heat and cool two massive buildings, highlighting a trend that proponents say reduces energy costs while championing sustainability. Endress+Hauser’s geothermal system will tap into energy stored below the Earth’s surface –in this case, 14 feet deep in a retention pond — for a stable, year-round heating and cooling source for buildings totaling 190,000 square feet.
While Endress+Hauser’s project is unique to Greenwood, Geothermal Heating and Cooling technology is taking root on a much bigger scale statewide, according to Joe Meyer, owner of Greenwood-based KOE Engineering & Surveying, which designed the system. Witness Ball State University’s project, labeled the nation’s largest ground-source, closed-loop district geothermal system.
