Pump and Dump or Heat Pump
My wife and I are building a new 2300 Sqr Ft home in South Carolina on a spring fed lake. We will be knocking down the existing small cabin that is there now but I have a question.
Eight months ago we had installed a 3 ton Heat Pump unit on the cabin thinking we may use it for the new house.
Now we are thinking to use a Geothermal system that would pull water from our well, heat or cool it, and dump the water back into the lake.
The new house will have foam insulation so the house should be pretty tight.
Would you use the Heat pump at all or forget it and just put in the Geothermal system?
