    I am currently building a house for my self in MN. I'm doing 90% of the work. I am hopeing to talk to any one willing to offer suggestions of things to keep in mind, regarding geo heat pumps. (wish I would have placed a valve here, Should have placed Vibration isolators there, ect.

    Does any one have pictures of their utility room? I am haveing a hard time finding any on the net. I would like to see how some set-ups look and maybe get an idea how to delegate space in my utility room.

    My set up will be a 7 TON hydronic unit for heating and cooling. I will have a hydronic air coil supplying forced air heating and cooling. Also, radient infloor heat in the basement and garage. My HP also has a de-superheater supplying 60%+- of the domestic hot water. The Hydronic tank will be 80 gallons. The domestic hot water tank will be 80-100 gallons, DHW will be operated on "off peak" (hot water storage).

    Thanks,
    Tdoe

    Pics of my setup

    Here are some pics of my setup. My installers didn't do anything special for noise or vibration. We have some amount of noise when it is running but if you are upstairs you don't really notice it. The zone motors are louder when they change position then the geo unit is.

    I wanted a seperate KW meter (for personal use)

    I wanted a seperate KW meter (for personal use) for the heat pump, to give me the ability to say "It cost me $..... to run this month". My electritian reccomended me calling my local power company and asking if they had some old meters that still worked. I called them and I got a KW meter for $25. It didn't come with the mounting socket, but the electrician said he could probably get one.
