Hello all, I’m in the process of replacing my ac and have decided to go geothermal. I have the following 2 quotes Cooling load: 46k Heating load: 60-65K Quote 1: Good contractor, does a fair number of systems/yr Water furnace 7series 4ton (upgraded from 5series) 15kw electric back u 4x 200ft vertical wells, upgraded to 225ft (4.5 ton loop) Water heater add on Variable speed water pump Will add additional return duct $32k before tax credit Happy to take off $4500 to go with a 5 instead of a 7 series Will have to add several electric circuits for the heat, probably another $2k Quote 2: Good contractor, #1 in the area Water furnace 5, 6 ton No electric back up Vertical loop Possible horizontal (5k cheaper, wife doesn’t want the yard that torn up) $35k before tax credit Won’t need as much electrical work, but probably some My home is earth contact and has ductwork through the slab. The system is already air starved with the current 4 ton conventional system. Multiple contractors have expressed concern about increasing the system size due to airflow issues. I also have humidity problems that I need addressed with this new system. I’m inclined to go with quote 1 with a 7 series to handle the humidity. Per quote 1, waterfurnace recommends sizing the loop and system for cooling load in my area over full heating load. He was also the only one to seem to understand earth contact homes and the problems and benefits associated with it. I do have 2 large soapstone wood stoves to heat that I actually like a lot to use during the winter for extra heat. I plan to give someone money in the next couple days. Thoughts? Other information I need to add?
