What You Need to Know

Maintenance Requirements:

Self-clean water filter every 2 months during winter. Replace air filters once per year. Replaced defective termistor once in 4 years

My Motivation:

Desire to have cost-effective net zero energy home that will save $165,000 in energy costs over 20 years. The geothermal heat pump is one of three components. The other two are a 10 kW PV system and 10 kW wind turbine which combined generate 19,000+ kWh per year which is enough for heating, AC, hot water, all electrical systems PLUS 18,000 miles per year driving of my electric car.

Advice:

There are no qualified installers of geothermal in my county: Clinton County, NY. My house is a proven example of why we need an installer to set up a business!

Additional Notes:

The system cost $10,000 more than oil heat in new construction. It costs $1,200 less than running oil furnace Its an open loop Geothermal (Ground Source Heat Pump) system Download much more information about my house from my web site. www.ualberta.ca/~mtyree/SWIEP
