    We bought a Well-Connect system over 3 years ago. We used to fill up our propane tank (500 gal) every 7 weeks, during the fall & winter. Now with the Well-Connect system, we fill up Once A Years!! Thank You to the folks at Well-Connect, for the great system we have set up in our home!
    Keeps our home comfortable year around! Love It!

    Also, the system was set up in about 7 hours with minimal mess made during the entire process.

    My wife and I purchased a new modular and placed it in a rural area near Ludington MI. Our heat source is propane. It also has central air conditioning.
    We use this as a weekend retreat, and we are there virtually every weekend year around with some extended stays.

    The short story is, I am a very skeptical person.. Generally if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I was in contact with Terra Caloric for months.. primarily because I just couldn’t believe the data I was being provided regarding system efficiency.. it sounded way too optimistic. Turns out, my results are even better than advertised. With rare exception, my regular forced air system doesn’t get used and the monthly cost to operate the Well Connect unit is ridiculously inexpensive. From the cooling side of things.. I haven’t used the central air one time since installing the Well Connect.

    I could go on and on but I can promise you, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    My water well is 515 ft. deep. The well pump is 5 h.p. It’s not inexpensive to run. I have a boiler / hot water heat.
    Your thoughts please.

      Regarding your well, do you know what the static water level is and at what depth the pump is set? Wondering if the 5HP pump is necessary because the static water level is at 500 feet, or is the well a high yield well used for irrigation or other agricultural purposes? If you don’t know, we could probably find the info in the Michigan data base for water wells. Just need the address.
      Agree that running the 5 HP pump with frequent starts and stops could be prohibitively costly. If the static water level is not too deep there might be other options such as a separate pump for the Well-Connect or a larger pressure tank.

      The typical Well-Connect application in a home with hydronic heating would be a ‘self-ducted’ configuration. Click here to see an example:http://wellconnectgeo.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/WC-Self-Ducted-Example-v2.pdf

      Thank you for your question.

    I live in South Alabama where it gets extremely hot. You talk more about heating but how is it with cooling? Our house is over 3400 sf and our electric bill can get up to $600 a month in the summer. We have 2 heat pumps. Will your system cut our electric bill down a much as the propane heating? Do you need 2 systems since I have 2 heat pumps? Where does the unit get installed since my unit is half in a closet and the other half outside? We have no basement.

    Thanks,

    Dawn Baxter

      Hi Dawn,

      Well-Connect is very efficient at cooling. We do concentrate more on heating as the savings associated with heating is much more significant than cooling in most cases. That said, a Well-Connect is typically 20% to 30% more efficient for cooling than a conventional air source heat pump. To best answer your question for your home, if you take a minute to fill out our online form, we can send you an energy cost analysis which will give you a very good estimate of your cooling cost savings. Here is the link:http://wellconnectgeo.com/site-preview/

      Thank you for you inquiry.

      Tim

      Our current models are all water to air as this is the most applicable design for existing homes and facilitates air conditioning. We are in development of a water to water system for radiant flooring, but this will not apply to hot water baseboard. Thank you for your question.

      While there are situations where an installation can take 2 days or sometimes 3, in 80% or more of the applications, the installation is completed in 4 to 8 hours.
