Mountain Home Idaho
Retrofit – Removed propane furnace and A/C unit
This customer purchased this home, and immediately contacted us to install a geoexchange system. When he called the propane company to come and get his tank, they said “We are very sorry to loose you as a customer.” Apparently the propane truck was a frequent visitor during heating months. This is another earth loop that we modified due to lava rock. More below
We changed the shape of the pit, and for the first time, brought in some clean fill dirt to backfill over the loop piping. This was a small expense compared to the savings over the life of the geothermal system. On a side note, this customer’s domestic water well was ~450ft deep with limited capacity. This made the closed loop system a much better choice.
