Cape Cod Geothermal ... this one is a closed loop geothermal system that provides all the necessary heating and cooling to a 2800 sqft home on Cape Cod.
The owner has had an excellent winter heating season experience with comfortable humidity levels and a very small electrical load which was offset by solar PV panels ...
This particular client combined geothermal with solar PV for a near net zero for all heating, lighting, and appliance energy consumption.

As per nearly one complete heating season with the use of an all electric geothermal water-to-air system, I am completely satisfied. Although my new home is extremely well insulated and requires a minimal heat load.
I do find that the geothermal pump produces a lower temperature air than the typical oil fired system which makes interior air quality less dry. My humidity levels are so comfortable that I am not even using the built-in humidifier.
My entire electric bill for a 2400 sqft home which includes heat, hot water, lighting, and appliances would have been under $500 for the whole winter. But since I have a solar array on my roof supplying the electricity, my bill was just a few dollars.
The folks at NERES were a pleasure to work with. Their knowledge and experience exceeded my expectations.
