Geothermal make sense for our house?
Building a 2,300 sf house in Nebraska, new construction on a one-third acre lot. Will be a pretty square, 2-story house house with 2x6 walls, and planning on 2" of XPS on exterior. I had planned on a high efficiency gas furnace, but considering a geothermal.
Electricity prices are quite low here, but I worry they will continue to rise, particularly given increasing coal emission regulations, whereas it seems our natural gas supplies are pretty abundant. I realize I'm asking very broad, vague questions, but I would love to hear anyone's thoughts. Thanks!
