The heat pump receives water from an extensive geothermal loop buried below the earthwork of slopes and terraces on south side of house.

Besides main thermostat, there are individual thermostats in three upstairs bedrooms. The system keeps the entire home at a beautiful comfort level ambient temperature all year long. The tiles, slate, and concrete are especially delightful in the winter months with their conduction of the warmth.
