    Geothermal Loop question

    Hello All new to the community.

    Quick question. I m looking at installing a (2) zone Geothermal Horizontal loop system for a new build. Is there a thermal advantage of running (1) long line in a narrow trench vs the Slinky type of installation With (1) wide area? Thanks for the imput.

    If you use the same load they should both do the job.

    The slinky will give more area, so you get more out of it, Google Ground source heat pump design and there's some info from some colleges& TVA that can help you

    No one-loop design is any better or worse than any other PROPERLY deigned loop configuration. The loop design will be determined by the site-specific conditions on the ground, such as land area (or lack of it) or water availability for a pond or lake loop. You work with what you have.
