    Does anyone know if you can combine a vertical loop well with horizontal loops? My installer drilled one well and was unable to complete the remaining wells do to soil conditions, so he installed the required footage of loops in horizontal trenches and tied it into the one vertical well. I've had another installer tell me that the system will not work proper with combined vertical and horizontal loops.

    Yes, you can combine vertical and horizontal loops, keeping in mind flow rate and head pressure requirements match with heat pump and the rest of the system.
    We have done a number of these hybrid loops.
