I have more info on current setup than the actual quote contains. Talks are on hold during virus. My choice - I'm high risk. House was built in 1998. 2300 sq. ft. upstairs, about the same finished in basement as well. Currently on propane heat via 500 gallon tank (owned) and we've spent just over $3,000 since 11/10/2019 @ $2.12/gallon delivered. I know there are some insulation/envelope issues. Those have been contracted & $ put down to address when this virus crap is over. I'm getting attic fully cleaned out, can lights covered, some gaps closed up, and everything closed cell sealed, plus R-60 cellulose sprayed everywhere in attic. Plus, they're removing the ceiling tiles along basement perimeter and closed cell spray sealing the floor/ceiling joists/perimeter in basement as well. I was hoping for a $30K quote for geothermal to replace 2 old systems. Basement furnace is a 92% efficiency propane furnace, with 2 ton AC outside (both systems manufactured in 1998). Main floor heated by attic 80% propane furnace, 3.5 ton AC unit outside (both systems manufactured in 2008). The AC unit has a small leak around one line outside per geothermal quote guy as it's "wet" looking and he said should be dry (other unit was dry). I have a great area for a couple vertical wells and it is just off the outside basement entrance to house - so getting the lines into house will be easier. Here is the "rough" estimate, more detailed provided should I wish to move forward and before I move forward (looking for rough draft first). Basement GEO System: 1 Two Ton, Two stage Water Furnace Model #LDV024-104L0AA Package Heat Pump with 5kw back up heater kit (Water Furnace Warranty: 5 year parts, 5 year labor). 1 Healthy Climate Model #HCC20-28 MERV 11 20x25x5 (was quoted initially a MERV 16, so this info is incorrect) 1 Air Scrubber X153639N Air Purifier 1 WiFi Water Furnace Thermostat Main Floor System: 1 Four Ton, Two Stage Water Furnace Split GEO Heat Pump System 1 Four Ton Fan, Coil, Air Handler Installed in Attic with 15kw Back Ip Heater Kit Model #SAH048151 Unit (Water Furnace Warranty: 10 year parts, 5 year labor). 1 Healthy Climate Model #HCC20-28 MERV 11 20x25x5 (was quoted initially a MERV 16, so this info is incorrect) 1 Air Scrubber X153639N Air Purifier 1 WiFi Water Furnace Thermostat Main trunk line will be fabricated from 26 gauge metal wrapped in 3’ R-8 duct wrap We will do low voltage control wiring BUT NO power wiring in this bid Copper refrigerant lines with insultube on the suction line PVC drain from the indoor unit to take care of condensation Drain Pan with emergency float switch Wood platforms in Attic for unit and walking area I was also told they would install a "pre heat tank" to feed into our propane tankless water heater and add a 'loop back' to the farthest point to provide always ready hot water nearly everywhere in the house. This is a bonus to us, as right now, it literally takes about 100-120 seconds to get a hot shower at either main floor bathrooms or hot water at the kitchen sink (opposite side of house). Water heater currently in basement/middle of house, closest to kitchen. Total estimate is: $58,500 with 25 months financing at 0%, or $62,884 with 60 months financing at 0% (essentially, they front load 7.5%) It's my understanding, the tax credit doesn't apply to all the work. I was also told I'd need to replace wiring, currently 200A service would need upgraded to 400A service, and that would cost about another $4400. Does tax credit apply for this as well? This seems REAL steep to me. Company has some good ratings on google/elsewhere. They also came in considerably cheaper for instead installing 2 new Carrier heat pump full installations with propane as backup source than the competition I had provide quote as well. Other company wanted $36K for 2 Carrier Infinity 18 systems where as the geothermal company quoted $24-26K for the same 2 systems. Both companies were high rated/reviewed on Google/other sites at 4.7-5.0 ratings (80-160 ratings each available). I don't know why I was hoping this order would have come in at $30K. If it had, I would have already signed the contract. at $59-63K, it's considerably MORE to consider. I don't have $59K and am not quote comfortable with $2360/mo at 25 months, so it'd need to be $63K @ $1050/mo for 60 months. I didn't see the geothermal company name in any searches, so not sure if they've been discussed here or if naming companies is just frowned upon, so won't name them unless that's permitted. Would love to find out they are top-notch from those here that are "in the know."
