Palestinians now pay the highest energy rates, and the population has grown, and the number of gadgets utilized now is several times greater than it was ten years ago. The country's situation did not require air conditioners, but they have now become a necessity in all places, in addition to a large number of factories and installations, resulting in an overabundance of electrical energy, so we must use natural energy sources to reduce non-renewable energy consumption and environmental pollution from fossil fuels. If you're looking for a solution, a geothermal heating and cooling system is a fantastic option. Geothermal energy is ecologically beneficial, has a 24-hour production cycle, and has a long life span. The system employs a vertical ground heat-exchanger built at 70 meters deep through the water pipes, where heat is transmitted from the earth. A low-cost duct system distributes both hot and cold air throughout the structure and includes a fresh air intake. In this project, we will compare the benefits and drawbacks of geothermal energy to other kinds of energy, particularly electric (cost, maintenance, which is more effective?) by utilizing both in heating and air conditioning at Hardee's restaurant. Geothermal energy is underutilized in our nation "Palestine," and this is the solution to the query, "Has this concept project been done on any building before?" Geothermal energy is underutilized in our country "Palestine," therefore it is critical that we use it. With all of these benefits, we propose using geothermal energy in sites that run daily and 12 hours a day, as well as in regions that have enough room for drilling. We picked Hardee's restaurant in Nablus because it operates every day, 12 hours a day, so the recuperation period will frequently be brief, and in our estimates, it is around 3.2 years.
