    I'm building a house in the near future 2800-3000 ft2. I'll have spray foam. My question is how does Geothermal perform in hot climates. Summertime average temps 90-105F. I have a lot of limestone on my 1 acre lot so I'm thinking I may have to go vertical (more expensive). It seems there are few Geothermal installers in the area and it is difficult to find anyone who knows anything about Geothermal. I don't mind spearheading a trend in the San Antonio area, but I don't want to screw myself either. I welcome all responses.

    Thank you,

    in your cooling dominated climate, a conventional air to air heat pump will be much more cost effective.

    How deep is your water table?

    I could only find a range from 30-1600 ft. I’m thinking closer to 150-250 since I am close to a lake
