    Yes, I'm based out of Birmingham.

    I've been talking to John too.., and I just finished up scheduling a visit to the ChilTrix/HotSpot-Energy headquarters for the 1st week in November. Wilmington really isn't that much out of the way for me with this particular trip. I'll be heading into Atlanta to visit with the GA Mitsubishi Electric operations center after I visit the ChilTrix/HotSpot-Energy group. I could swing by and take a look at your project in person if you like...

    I finely decided on a two Gibson made by Gree multi split three high wall units. The main reasons were the house is in a very rural area in the middle of Missouri almost in Arkansas, qualified service people are hard to come by for technical systems in the area. Two systems were picked for one main reason - any problems with one system hopefully I'll have ac or heat while waiting on parts getting shipped. Geo,solar or chilltex are neat systems but if I'm unable to service these on my own the system would have to be replaced with a more conventional system

    There won't be much of a difference between the inverters that are in the Gree units versus any of the other mini-split manufacture's equipment... As far as refrigerant cycles and heat transfer within geothermal or air to water systems, the same science/physics that makes conventional systems perform is also in effect.

    I'm sure there are at least a few people near you that can service and install "high-efficiency" systems. You'll just need to search them out.

    I know mitsubishi makes water source condensers for their citi multis, only 3 phase at this point. As soon as they step up and make them single phase, WF and Climatemaster are going to be F'd right in the B. Just imagine 40SEER+ on a 10 ton modular system.

    I think they were testing their single phase air to water source units (called Ecodan in European/Asian markets) in ATL when I went for Citi-Multi training last Nov/Dec. They should have them avaliable by now..?

    By the way, hydronic heat pump/chiller systems are typically rated in COP/NPLV.

    I too live in Birmingham, AL, and am considering the Chiltrix CX30 system with fan coil interior units. JBeckham, did you ultimately go with Chiltrix? How's your experience been? Would you be willing to talk off-line to discuss?

    I didn't end up selecting an air to water source heat pump for my current residence. However, that doesn't mean I would exclude that option from any home I may build in the future, or advise anyone against using that particular application in theirs.

    If you need some help, just shoot me an email. My address is in my profile.
