I've been convinced by all of those of you with experience to build ICF in Florida. Even checked out one in progress--literally will take a 4+ hurricane to do it damage!
Seriously considering geotherm for HVAC system. I understand the desupersaturater for hot water while cooling as it extracts heat to heat water in a reg. water tank. They recommend an electric one not plugged in.
Question: Is there only "free" hot water available while airconditioning runs? How well does it work in the winter when switching to heat or will I have to plug the electric tank in and go from there. (If thats the case, can I use a gas hot water tank for storage and just fire it up if needed?)
Also, they have 5 different systems to choose from ie good, better, best anyone know how that translates into what a neophyte wants--how much does it cost and how good does it work for the dollar spent!
Thanks for any help/advice sorting this out
