    I was wondering about geothermal in Maine. If its effective, worth the cost, problematic, and if any loop was preferred over the other in this region? It will be for a newly built house 1900 sq ft

    Geothermal should allways be looked at as an option to other heating and cooling methods. There are a lot of methods to do the exchange. Which method depends on your exact location on the rock, and your specific lot conditions. Up north we see a wide range of exchange methods being offered. Is there a local geo company anywhere near you? That should be your first call. You can stop by my website for a quick over view of the different ways to get it done.

    Many parts of Maine are within our service area. We will be glad to visit your site and give you some ideas. Yes, geothermal should be considered a real viable way to condition any new home in New England, especially as fossil fuels continue to rise.
    Visit our website and give us a call if you want.

    Geothermal works the same in Maine as it does anywhere else, however, equipment needs to be sized for local climate (manual J heat load) and loops need to be sized based on your soil conditions (and temperatures) for proper operation. My company has dozens of installs in central to northern Maine. Send me a message for my contact info.
