'Geothermal heat pump'
'Geothermal heat pump'
Fake Company: Futurizon Solar Innovations
Submitted to: EPA

Geothermal heat pumps basically move warm air from underground into buildings to heat them; then they pipe hot air out and store it underground to cool them.

The GAO used phony data that claimed that its phony pump was more energy-efficient than any legitimate counterpart on the Energy Star site at the time it was submitted.

Status: Approved

NEXT: 'Compact florescent light bulb'
