I have a raised house in New Orleans and are looking to do Geothermal, radiant heating, and if possible radiant cooling. Does anyone know about if radiant cooling works with a geothermal system? And does anyone know if you can hire a driller to do a system that isn't the same guy who does the ground source heat pump? The quote I got was extremely high

I don't see why not. Hire whoever you feel can save you the most $$$ and still do the job correctly.
However, since this IS a DIY site, have them drill, YOU do the rest, (as much as you can) and save even more.

Always have one contractor responsible for the whole job, whenever possible.

If you hire your own driller, any problems you have in the future will be because of the bad drilling job, according to one guy, and the driller will blame it on the other guy.
