just wondering what the air coil temps are usually on a geothermal system mine dosn't seem that hot at 150\f or 50/C it comes through the vents at around 30C or 90\f on the first floor and 25C or 80 F on the second. isn't really heating the house right up just keeping it warm. at around 69F

any knowledge appriciated

Sounds like you have duct insulation issues.

If the return isn't hooked.
Where is the return air coming from?

If its coming from the basement. And the basement is colder then the areas you are trying to heat.

You can't make a good judgement, on how well its heating. Since it isn't pulling back warmer air as the rooms warm up.

What program was used to size the Geo, and determine number of wells, and their depth/ or length of slinky system?

So are you looking for information to compare it to once it's done or are you fearful the operation won't be suitable?

Could you please punctuate your post? I am getting three different meaning with the periods missing.


WTF. The so called information age and we gotta be telepathic to figure out what some posts mean too?

cold air renturn is not fully hooked up so it is definetly only heating cold air from the basement. dont have it hooked up to minimize dry wall dust entering fan coil. currently playing with the thermostat to make sure the second stage is the one working. The thermostat doesn't say first or second stage not sure if its supposed to. does seem to be getting warmer. right know the temps -26C outside and its still +20C inside the house. so its definelty working.

what would you think an average canadian fancoil temp would be; 150F seems quite good.

That would be a low air flow.

Not good for the GEO.

Probably a very short life span for the compressor.
