Does Geothermal with slab on grade construction make sense

We are in Minnesota (Zone 6a). Building new this summer on 12 acres. 2000-2400 sq/ft single level (maybe a bonus above garage), slab on grade, with radiant floor heat. Shooting for a 13-15kw grid tied PV. We are looking at Geothermal and have a good site for it, but I'm not sure it makes sense in our situation. I'm hoping not to run duct work just for AC (since we will have radiant), but I

How to Build a Geothermal Cooling System

Mar 02,  · A geothermal cooling system uses the temperature of the earth to cool homes. The temperature below the surface of the ground fluctuates less and is better regulated by not being exposed to the wind and the sun. A home can use the ground's temperature to cool its own by constructing such a system.

Principles and Components of Geothermal Heat Pump Systems

Passive cooling systems provide cooling by pumping cool water or antifreeze through the system without using the heat pump to assist in the process. Active cooling systems use the heat pump. In the summer (cooling mode), heat is rejected from the inside of the space, 70 degrees for this example, to the earth, which has a constant temperature of
