I'm in the process of a central Washington state ground loop install.

Climatemaster 27, Ruud 50gal heat pump water heater with depowered 50gal tank w/ DSH.

Ground loop consists of 150ft header trench with 7 200 foot long trenches running off it, each with 800ft of tubing. Total system is setup for 5 tons.

The temperature of the earth increases the deeper you go, and becomes more stable (less to no daily change).

Is that enough science?
