Geothermal HVAC in Rural Western New York State
Greetings all - I'll soon be building a residence in Western New York State - south of Buffalo area - and am considering geothermal technology for our heating system. It gets pretty cold here in the winter and summers are typical NE summers. The land has a 2 acre pond that is about 8 feet deep at its deepest point and plenty of lawn and woods.
Is it feasible to have such a system as my primary and only heating system in this climate? What needs to be considered and completed to make it work properly? Any recommendations on installers and manufacturers?
