Paul,

Why is that bad? I thought ground-source HVAC systems worked better if
the ground was saturated with water. Better thermal conductivity than
dry soil.

My problem finding someone to install a ground-source system was that
everyone for miles is on city water. You have to be able to drill a
hole in the ground and the folks familiar with well-drilling equipment
are three hours away.

Bill Herrin
