    ground source heat pumps

    looking for design info for ground source heat pump for 2500sqft bungalow in southern ontario. Would it be suitable to install a horizontal loop below a 1000sqft attatched garage to provide a more stable ground temp without having to go to deep ? If so what size - length and type of tubing would best suite . I have been told 100ft/ton (home is a new build)

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

    Simple answer is no.

    I have been told 100ft/ton

    Not even close.

    I suggest you do research on loops.

    Sounds like the obverse of the HO who put his refrigerator in the doorway to garage with the fridge door open to cool the house, then wondered why the garage got hot.
