Step 2 - Heat transfer installation
After the ground loop is installed, pressure tested and inspected by the town, the installer can start installing gear.
I decided to have the compressor portion installed in the garage, close to the water heater. I purchased the desuperheater option to heat the hot water with the excess geothermal heat.
Here is a picture of the ground loop connection and the circulation pumps that push the water through the ground loop:
The next part is to connect the compressor unit to the loop, and run the new refrigerant lines up to the attic for the blower unit:
Then you go into the attic, and turn off the AC until the rest is completed!
