When considering the installation of a new heating system give geothermal a look. With today's federal and local rebates, it can actually cost less to go with a geothermal heating system rather than the best propane or oil system. Benefits include minimal reliance on fossil fuels, cleanest energy available and a typical fuel savings annually of 50%.


To give those interested a better understanding of Geothermal Heating, I have decided to offer a look into this technology and its benefits. The featured home is a new 2 story, 1800 square foot home being constructed with optimum energy efficiency in mind here in the Lakes Region.

Step 1. System Design: The design of a geothermal heating system is specific to each individual home. Windows, doors, insulation r-values and the building envelope are important features to consider when designing a system.


Design Summary: Lakes Region Home

Design Data:

Heating Load: 37,500 Btuh

Heating Temp Diff: 65.0 F

Cooling Load: 24,000 Btuh

Cooling Temp Diff: 20.0 F

Constant Fan: No

Design City: GREEN BAY, WI

Winter Design: -9 F

Summer Design: 88 F


Comfort Conditions:

Heating Setpoint: 60 F

Cooling Setpoint: 72 F

Start Cooling Temp: 72 F


Annual Load:

Heating: 58.5 million Btu

Cooling: 12.0 million Btu


Performance Summary


Heating Electrical Use: 4,768 kWh

Cooling Electrical Use: 355 kwh

Estimated annual energy use: $1262.00


As the installation progresses, I will post photos of Step 2. The Installation, to this Blog
