You better hope you have a good well. If you run out of water you run out of heat.

Have intentions of installing ground source heat pump in my home. Will take water from well, filter it, run it through the condenser coil, and dump it into my pond. This will cost me a couple of SEER points, but should still put me in the 16 -18 SEER area. Will cost about $350.00 for ditch witch to dig trench - ( 4 ft deep at deepest ) and pvc pipe to bury in the ditch. The remaining cost will be in the unit
itself, which is not cheap, but by doing the work myself, it will be worth the cost in just a few years.
