Geothermal vs. air-source heat pump
I have researching and getting quotes on hvac for a while now.. It is getting to crunch time.
Well insulated, tight house.
All three quotes include:
3 units, 3 air handlers, each zoned 3 times. Rigid Trunks and short flex runs.
option A. Carrier 18seer 25vna08… 5 stage. ( I don’t like the potential harmonics problems of their greenspeed)
option B. Lennox x25 top of their line variable.
option c. Waterfurnace 7 series geothermal units. horizontally drilled ground loop.
Just received Waterfurnace quote today, and with the tax credit, it is actually cheaper than option a and b. Very reputable company… I never researched geothermal, because I thought it would be so much more. But with the tax credit it is coming in cheaper than the other two companies.
Is there any reason why I wouldn’t choose the geothermal? These three companies all have amazing reputations, and come highly recommended…
