I'm new to this discussion board, but have found it very informative.
From what I've read, there seem to be issues with both of the major brands of geothermal systems: FHP and WaterFurnace. As I have NO experience with any geothermal system, I was wondering if anyone would please enlighten me as to the 'true' reliability of the different geothermal manufacturers. I realize a good installer is key, but that aside - a good installer can't compensate for a defective design [as we've witnessed here]. In other worlds, who right now has the most reliable design [I'm not looking to go cheap on the units cost]. Quality over cost.
Any insights would be appreciated.
