I know, it is on for Tess!:new_smilie_colors1:
I know Snuffles' kinfolk have geothermal too. Not sure how they do money wise on a cold winter night since they use electric heat if the heat pump action can not keep up, but I think summer AC costs are very reasonable to keep the house 70 or below.We've had it on for over a month. House and kennels. Our geothermal is wonderful.
We have never gone on back up heat. We have the vertical unit. It is like a closed loop but goes 70 feet into the ground. At that depth the temp is always 45-50 degrees. Unlike a horizontal closed loop that is only a few feet below the ground where it can freeze in the winter.Not sure how they do money wise on a cold winter night since they use electric heat if the heat pump action can not keep up,
