You stoled my thought. Try learning how to do a horizontal loop from a book. When you get that first wet caving nightmare you'll probably panic and give up. Its hard to make any money in this...
We had a job like this and it took forever to figure it out. It turned out to be a bad seal on the pump kit itself that never leaked enough to leave water on the floor, but enough to trip off the...
just wondering why you went from open to closed loop?
If it was because of water quality than I hope they did an acid wash before hooking up the closed loop because a flush cart won't get all the...

Should have gone with a 6 ton Waterfurnace and whistled all the way to the bank.
My utility costs are 75%cheaper with geo vs. natural gas.
sounds like mo geo man has got it going on, I'm envious of your set up. We sub out the drilling and they get the loop profits
Did you have more than one trench because the max length of pipe is 800 ft. before it need to be tied to a header manifold. if they put 5 trenches 90ft. long with a 6 pipe system you still end up...
Could be that the header was installed incorrectly and you are short cycling through only one or two trenches. Without a reverse return header the whole loop field doesn't contribute heat equally to...
I've installed a top notch ground loop system and had attached it to Bard Equiptment and the only thing the customer had to say was that it sounded like a freight train was in the basement....
Just finished a changeout that took over a week, due to the side-jobhack who told the homeowner he had been to school and presently worked for a hvac contractor. FYI duct tape doesn't hold flex to...
I've worked on both kinds of equiptment and the Envision unit is the cadillac of all the geo's out there. I just pput one in my dad's house a little while ago.
As far as the closed loop options go,...
If you are going to average around a hundred bucks a month for electric, than you have a fantastic system. I also have a 4 ton system with the same setup and i'm double that. My house is twenty...
Time is money and cutting wood takes time and lots of effort
Check with your insurance company, i get a big savings discount because having a Waterfurnace means that I have no combustion in my...

A heat pump by definition is simply moving heat from one place to another.
An open loop is moving heat from ground water into a house. there is no combustion and no exhaust. Geothermal...

I can't imagine how your furnace wouldn't keep your house above 66 if you were decently insulated. Do you know what that situation is like. Rent a hopper from lows and blow it in whereever you can....
Anyone putting in that much electric strip heat either doesn't have a decent service department, or they don't really think that geothermal heat really works.:beat:

I could be wrong:couchhide: but your methanol/water mix could still be flammable at this ratio. Our tech department cries if we add to much methanol because it doesn't transfer heat as well as water...

I typically spec. a 150 ft deep well per ton, all connected to a reverse return header grouted form the bottom up with thermally enhanced grout.
My well driller and I are both Internationally...

the no pressure system has a resevoir mounted above the circulating pump where the air can escape from the closed loop system. This eliminates the need for a flush cart when filling a closed loop. ...

All the equiptment I've worked on only requires 1 and1/2 gallons per ton.
Sounds like the air source guys have a lobbyist whose willing to use some dirty tactics. i can't imagine casings would solve anything because in order for the vertical loops to work, they...
This new design was developed to increase ground contact and decrease excavation invasions. Shorter tranches and less yard to fix. It is a mat that is about 4 ft tall and 45 foot long and when put...
You have a monstrous sized ranch and a very reasonable heating bill it sounds like. Everyone knows that its cheaper to heat 2 levels than one.
Heat rises of course. My house is the same sq. footage...
I was just at a show in Indy and Waterfurnace is coming out with a new loop design that will be the envy of the industry. A pond loop is ideal due to the surface contact factors of the closed loop...

Sounds like someone put way to much methanol in your system.
It should be a 10 percent solution and I've never had any leaks with the waterfurnace supplied pumps and equiptment. Methanol is in all...

I hope the used a reverse return header to get equal flow to all wells:eek2:
The only thing worse than a hillbilly install, is one that is 200 ft. out of view.
Grouting should be done from the...
