    Ground Source Pool Heating and a radiant floor

    This is a new home we finished last week, it was almost 2 years in the making to get this home from conception to completion on the HVAC system.
    It has a slinky loop field(not our normal) because of the lot size and hill and wetlands making it difficult to do a pit or racetrack while equalizing pipe length. It has a total of 13 tons, a 4 ton Synergy 3D WaterFurnace unit that runs the lower floor radiant and master bedroom radiant as well as forced air heating and cooling on the left side of the home and a desuperheater attached to a Navien NR210a tankless water heater. On the right side of the home is a WaterFurnace split NDZ system with Lifebreath HRV.

    The pool is a 6 ton WaterFurnace NSW unit with a marine grade heat exchanger for the salt water pool backed up by a 400K BTU pool heater for initial startup and if they decide to use the system on the colder days of the year. Let me know what you think!

    Cool stuff. Looks like the equipment got put in some cramped areas. I like a big mechanical room, but not every house has that luxury!!!

    Yes very cramped mechanical areas. Its funny how the system starts out small(two furnaces and two AC's due to framing design) and then customer adds on geo and radiant floor and zoning and somehow the mechanical room gets smaller on the floor plan!

    Another great job Travis. You guys do a lot of geo thermal. Is it big in your area or does your company specialize in it?
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    Not very much geo in our area, but we are the largest geo dealer in the pacific NW from what Waterfurnace tells us. We do about 50 heat pumps per year, some companies in the Midwest do hundreds if systems per year so I feel small compared to them but larger than any direct competitors.

    No geothermal in residential at all here in Seattle. Wonder what makes PDX different.

    Or you just don't know about it :-)
    I personally know there is a decent amount of geo in Seattle. Geo is tough because you will never get a call for a repair if you don't do it and you will never get a call for install if you don't do it so most that dont' do it don't know about it. I have actually been asked a few times to come to seattle for jobs and have done a bit of work in Washington. Also with geo you will never know its installed at the house next to you because its burried under the ground. I know of at least two companies that are doing 30+ systems a year in WA and we are doing 50 or so just in the Portland metro area.
    I know its also very popular in the islands like Widbey? Island because most have acreage and only propane, oil or gas.

    With natural gas on site, the rebates must have sold that job.

    Yes, I doubt this customer would have moved forward without the federal tax credit, they still would have done a Navien and radiant floor and the IAQ equipment but it would be gas furnace and AC instead of geothermal.
