its 2 in a residence.
thats why i am here. nobody here seems to know much about scw heat exchange capacity. just looking to check my pro's #'s before dropping big bucks on a geo.
wall of shame...
So geo designers, what tonnage can this well support? I'm looking for 7.5t of HEATING if I can get it. Cooling is much less critical we are on the coast and rarely use the ac.
Well is not used for...
I have the santa fe and it works great for me. I think the crawl space units are tweaked to run at a cooler...

water quality is generally very good here, and no room for a buried loop.
its 500' to the well bottom. water is at 10'. not pumping up 500'
So I have a well (being tested tomorrow for geo capacity) and am likely going geo if the well can support 5t. pretty sure i am ok for 5t cause its 500ft deep, but has low production.
What i think...
I started by looking at geo. But with a 10+ year payback why would I do it?
it'll be worn out by the time i break even. It's nice and all but not that nice.
Until there are a few more installers...
that city multi hyperheat looks the nutz.
unfortunately no 3 phase here.
that leaves the sanyo eco i as my only choice out of your recommendations.

I am looking for the quietest high efficiency air source heat pump available.
looking for a handler too.
I have 2 AC only splits to replace 3 ton each.
Thinking of keeping the oil heat for second...
smart 'nuff to pry open wallets that otherwise might stay closed.
it is after all just a thermostat. cold =on warm=off.
If you are looking for a thermostat there are other choices, If you are...

A few hours is right, overnight is too strong.
I have a primo and love it.
had the original liner crack and they stood behind it great.
how many you cooking for? The egg can be small.
FWIW I don't care for the...
I hear you on the efficiency but a $10k price diff would require a $1320 yearly savings to justify it on a 10 year 6.75% loan. My entire heat bill should only be 1500-2000/year with...
I looked at this attic business a while ago and it didn't seem like it would meet my needs.
compare it to an embedded collector inside the roof only does 150-300btu/sf/day. need a big roof to heat...
I'm new to this but in the northeast we have cold Entry water temps. and there is another type setback that can be advantageous. if you have a water to water unit and a direct hot water tank for...
So got some quotes on geo air handlers.
Waterfurnace Envision equipment came in at twice the price of FHP EM series.
Is FHP that bad? is WF that good?
Marginal efficiency improvements between...
This is an interesting discussion and parallels what I have been finding.
payback on geo is a long haul. almost fell over when i saw the price of a 6t water to water heat pump. hard to justify the...
OK i know each install is different but what are some pro's and cons of each?
existing hvac is 9yrs old in a 9yr old house. 4500sf like this:
hydro air 2 handlers
2 outdoor splits for...
good guess on the footage
4500sf +hot water is off the oil as well.
I know we have infiltration problems, cold floors when it blows etc.
air handler in the attic. have to condition that space.
pretty much have that except the burner is about 9yrs old.
went through 1400 gallons of oil last year not looking to do that again.
insulation quote on the way.....
I am trying to decide on air source vs water source heat pump for residential hvac north of Boston MA.
Ground loop is not a possibility pump & dump not a possibility. SCW with bleed is...
