This required drilling three geothermal wells, each 300 feet deep, for the heat exchangers (also referred to as geothermal loops). And involved installing both a 3-ton unit and a 2-ton unit to service the home.
This is a home that is a long-term new construction project, being built as a family retreat/estate/dream house, in the Cane Ridge area.
The exterior walls of the house are constructed using a foam core insulated, full log wall system, for the asthetics and charm of a log cabin, with energy efficiency that rivals any modern home.
Since the system was being installed prior to the home being completed, it was an ideal candidate for installing a Bosch geothermal heat pump, which is exactly what we did. The owner was also in a position to benefit from the 30% tax credit incentive, for installing geothermal units, so this ended up being the perfect solution for their family. It made SENSE from every angle!
The photos shown here are of a small mechanical room that is located at the foot of the basement stairs in the middle of the house.
This dream house is setup now for a long, happy, and energy efficient future!
