U.S. Dandelion, an extension of the Google company, recently unveiled an intelligent heating and air conditioning system that uses ground energy to regulate the home's temperature.

The business, which originated in the semi-secret X research and development laboratory run by Google, parent company Alphabet, was founded last year to sell geothermal energy systems to consumers. Its first commercial product is called Dandelion Air.

Dandelion Air is a geothermal system that moves the heat between the house and the ground with plastic pipes and a pump, which provides heat to the building in winter and pushes the heat towards the ground in summer.

The New York-based power company said the system is almost twice as efficient as typical air-conditioning systems and four times more efficient than traditional ovens.

The equipment is available from 2 to 5 tons.

The installation is not cheap. Dandelion estimates that the cost is around US $ 20,000, depending on the size of the home and the state and federal incentives. But the company notes that consumers are likely to save around 20 annual percent on the cost of domestic heating and cooling.

The system is now available to most households in New York, after a six-month pilot program in the Hudson Valley and Capital District areas.

Prospective customers can see if their home qualifies through the Dandelion website.

"Whether you are a proponent of renewable energy or not, this product is the best way to heat and cool your home," said Katie Ullmann, communications director of the company.
