The CORE Home

There is a new type of dome home being developed by Sustainable Living Systems called “The Core Home” Basically, it is a hollow Tubular dome structure surrounded by  wood panels just as in a regular geodesic dome. But the best part of this idea is that there is a coolant fluid running through the Tubular pipe structure with a pump in the top of the dome that keeps the fluid in constant motion. This fluid is then sent to a ground heat sink that stabilizes the temperature. Thus the whole house remains relatively a constant temperature. This fluid transfers the heat or the cool throughout the house. Heats up at the top of the house, and cooled at the bottom. or if it is cold out, collects the heat of the ground, and transfers it through out the structure.

This amazing idea gives the net energy usage as ZERO. since you are using a subterranean heat sink to to keep the house at a relatively constant temperature.  The average temperature of the earth. below the frost line is appropriately  65 degrees. To augment the savings you could use a solar pump to push the fluid through the pipes, and add Solar Panels to create more energy for your home usage.

  1. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned better from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there…
