    hard knocks

    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...

    loop air

    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...
  4. bad choice

    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.

    loop size?

    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...

    Got pics

    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...

    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...

    Equipment is key

    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.

    Pretty good utility bills

    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...

    Not Geo?

    :beat:

    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...

    Insulation?

    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:
  16. 20% methanol mix?

    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...

    no pressure system

    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. ...

    Hyper loop is the answer

    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...
