Project Description

This multi family building has 4 Condo suites which are 100% heated by our Nordic geothermal heat pumps. Distribution throughout the building consists of in-floor radiant heating on the main level and Unico High Velocity forced air heating and cooling on main, 2nd and 3rd level.

  • 12 tons of geothermal capacity
  • Two 6-ton Water to Water geothermal heat pumps
  • Boreholes located underneath the structure
  • In-floor radiant heat on the main level
  • Unico High Velocity forced air throughout the building
  • Geothermal domestic hot water pre-heat with dual tank set up
  • No natural gas heating: 100% geothermally heated since 2008

    Why not drill deeper where there is more heat and eliminate the need for a heat pump on the surface ?
    What will it cost to install a system big enough to heat my 40×60 Quonset barn on my farm ? And do you have a calculation for payback time versus standard natural gas heating with overhead heaters ?

      Hi Ted, good question. For a single residence, the drilling cost for this would be exorbitant. You’re talking depths of like 3000ft to get to those temperatures that allow heating year-round without the use of heat pump technology.
      For larger district systems, it could be an option, but local geology would be a very important factor. Our geothermal (or geo-exchange) is feasible pretty much anywhere in Alberta.
      I will email you privately for the quote.
