The Life on a Leaf house will be warmed by a geothermal heat pump which taps into the earth’s surface to use the energy and relatively consistent heat found in soil and rock. This means that the house doesn’t have to rely on electricity or oil for heating.

Mikko Nurmi represents Carrier, the company from which the geothermal heat pump is bought, as well as Warmia, which supplies the floor heating system.
