Need help recomending a system
I am a new homeowner, not a professional in the business, and do not readily understand the jargon. I have aproximately 1200 to 1500 square feet that I need to heat and dehumidify or drive off the moisture; I live in the wetest region in the lower 48. I have no heating ducts, and do not want to use them. I would like to install a geothermal heating system housing the pump in my unfinished basement, and running two coolant lines up through the basement to two different locations along the same wall separating my kitchen and living room from the bathroom and two small bedrooms with connecting hallway between the bedrooms which are located at the two ends of the house. There is a location along that wall where a heating/cooling coil and fan could be installed on both sides of the wall which could heat the bedroom and kitchen, and there is a similiar spot west along that wall where the same type set of dual heating/cooling coils and fans could be located heating the second bedroom and the living room. I would like to be recomended a geothermal system which could be set up this way. I need to know the exact product and where and how to go about obtaining and getting it installed.

Is there some insurmountable obsticle preventing the design of geothermal heating

ductless homes with GTHP geothermal hydronic fancoils
Hydro-Zone is a tm of Hydro-Temp for the chilled water and HW off of a forced-air same-unit system that uses the rfg off the air HX coil with modulated or no blower speed--- just for Mini-like distribution to console fancoils etc... but EER's higher, and the Heat-Reclaim 100% on demand HW IS pushing COP's near 6 as in cooling mode, the loop pumps are off line. 4zn board
Insulated pex to a Hot and Cold fluid fancoil unit, even higher pressure air ducted like a unico/ just better has been done by contractors.
If using UNICO system split air handlers with GTHP "condenser" sections, then up the air coils for heat pumps a ton larger than the Hydro-Temp or other splits.
I f Daiken has their ducts in a row, then their AIR HPump ~therm-- Domestic HW has heat reclaim too whilst Cooling is giving A/C heat rejected to a bronze circulator to a water tank (just not sure of their complete achievement)...
Hydro-Zone(tm) Hydro-Temp has NOW for about 3 years worked well with using VARIABLE compressors controlled by BACNET DDC systems , entirely residential as is institutionally used (that since 2009). Nicely "bug-free" so far.
EER's hit 45 acclaimed: just like many now in the mid 40's; but with heat-recovery (patented 1981, why so few big name users waited to see) heat reclaimed 100% in cooling modes to HW needed puts the EER's into near 55 easily [2:for:1, usage] (even small 2.1/2 ton units run near 24/7 with this off-the-shelf a/c dehumidifyer use making even ice melt at out-door-pads at/in permeters of larger structures in the winter time).
