Geothermal Installation: Part 4 Trenching & Earth Loops

Before the big storm hit on Wednesday night, the drilling company came out and dug our trenches to the house. The Earth loops they installed into the wells were hooked up and brought to the house via the trenches. The technicians then drilled into the side of our home into where the Water Furnace sits in our basement. This was an all day project and the men were trying to beat the storm that was going to drop 16 inches of snow. Once the piping was in the house they quickly back filled the trench and called it a day.

The following day the crews were going to do the flush and purge of the system but the snowy roads made this impossible for some of the crew to make it in. So now we are in a holding pattern until hopefully this week. We will also be getting our larger hot water heater along with the desuperheater that uses the heat from the earth to heat our hot water. This addition is also another way we will be saving on electricity.

Till next week……
