Advice on heating options for new build.
Hello, I've been a long time lurker on this board. It is a fantastic resource for newbies such as myself and my wife.
We have a 2 acre piece of land in the Matunuck section of South Kingstown, RI that we are building a home on. We have just decided on an architect so nothing has been done yet other than having the land cleared.
The land does not have town water so we will need a well. It also doesn't have access to natural gas so that is out as an option. It is very close to the ocean so it requires an Advantec Septic System.
My wife and I are trying to decide on a heating and air conditioning system. Neither of us wants oil and or propane. Although we will be using propane for the cooktop but not the oven as that will be electric.
We love the idea of Geothermal but it is very rare around here and information is hard to come by. We just stumbled upon Pellet Boiler systems and they seem promising but like everything there are drawbacks.
Any and all suggestions would be very much appreciated.
