    Question Geocomfort vs Waterfurnace

    Can any of the pro installers tell me if there are any big advantages or disadvantages to either one of these product lines. I'm building a new 7,500 sq ft house with radiant floor heat in walk-out finished basement and on first floor. Only two HVAC contractors in my area do geothermal. Their bids are similar in price. One uses Geocomfort and one uses Waterfurnace. I know about the 3rd party warranty on Geocomfort. Has that changed recently? Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I would choose the contractor with the most experience and personal references.
    Some people know the cost of everything but the value of nothing.

    Geocomfort vs. Water Furnace

    I'm sorry to be the next Johnny-come-lately... but I'm wondering if there were any more posts or opinions pertaining to Pablo1128's inquiry. I am weighing the benefits of a geothermal system and wondering if any of the pros have reason to recommend Geocomfort over Water Furnace (or vice versa).

    Your input, feedback, recommendations will be appreciated.

    GeoComfort has a new line out now that is pretty interesting.
    The coaxial coil is in the bottom enclosed in insulation.

    I have noticed the Geocomfort unit puts out a bit more BTU than waterfurnace. Don't confuse this for COP's as the GeoComfort may not be as high.

    Sometimes the higher output can keep you down a size vs the next unit.

    Both are very good units.

    My company has been installing WaterFurnace in Knoxville, TN for almost 3 years now, they are an excellent unit. Also there support and service to the installer and home owner is amazing. I would definately recomend the WaterFurnace. Check out the dealer too. Find out what kind of training and certifications they have, make sure they know how to install a geo unit properly. A good unit installed wrong turns into a bad unit very quickly

    thanks for the input

    thanks for the input. the remark about checking out your contract seems to be easy-to-overlook-but-EXCELLENT advise.

    i appreciate the feedback about the two systems.
