Re: The renovation continues ... today new 400 amp service!
said by ncbill:They are. But for a 5000 square foot house the necessary loop may have been prohibitively expensive in a heating-dominated climate like CT. And you'd still likely want backup heat of some sorts.
So why didn't you pick a ground source heat pump?
IIRC, those are more efficient for heating than air-source,
It can help supplement, but not necessarily fully replace. Plus in the winter most of the heat is used for heating. You can install an even longer loop for domestic hot water as well, but that adds even more cost.
plus can be configured to provide hot water.
