    The principle was used in ancient times. A long pipe buried deep in the ground moves air through an intake filter into the house’s ventilation system. In winter, the outside air is cold and the temperature is raised by the geothermal heat, so the house is heated.
    In summer, on the other hand, the air temperature is high and the air is cooled before it ventilates the house.
