Hello, I am new to Geothermal and hope you can give me some ideas as my electric bill seem higher than normal! I live in mid-Michigan.... burr it's COLD! I have the following system: FHP ES060-1VT Open loop well water system. (dumps to a pond) volts=208-230v Phase: 1 HZ: 60min. volts: 197 Blower mtr (ea): 208-230v 6.80 FLA. .75hp Minimum circuit ampacity: 43.1 Heating: A20 - W20/W10/80 19/16/13 kw Model HP150 - 1XS/M Kw 14.4 The well water pump is 5hp. for domestic use and the heat pump It says: Franklin Electric H.P. 3 Volt 230 Hz 60 PH 1 Cont duty date 02A19 R.P.M. 3450 There are 5 big blue tanks. (each about 3 feet tall, I don't know how many gallons). Our electric use for whole house use is 150kw daily x 10cents per kw = an electric bill of $450 for 30 days. This seems very high to me. (Note: The auxiliary heater (which I understand to be heat strips) was kicking in, and we now keep the thermostat at a steady 65 degrees so now they don't come on at all... with the heat strips we were looking at a bill of $900.) My house is 3000 feet over a ground floor and an upper level. I think its insullated "average" but I'm not sure. (the basement level is not heated) The geothermal unit kicks on several times per hour. If I had to guess (I haven't timed it) I would say it is running 60% of each hour. Based on the numbers I provided above, does $450/month for electric seem high? Is a 3hp well pump too big? Do you need other data from my unit? is there any other way to make it cheaper? (we are already wearing several sweaters to keep it at 65 degrees around the clock). Thanks for your time!
