We're gonna find a way to shift heat back and forth by putting something down here that is actually colder than the 55 degrees so that when it goes down, it's accepting heat from the ground plane, and then we bring it back up, let it go through its phase change, through this heat exchanger process, and now it's gonna be warmer than the air in the building, and so it's going to give that heat off into the building. You're shifting heat from the ground, then, up into the space. The geothermal is working using heat exchangers, has usually, typically, a few small pumps.
