I have owned a WaterFurnace for 12 years. It has had ten repairs in the time I have owned it. Most repairs are due to the Freon leaking out. When the system is on back-up heat (like a big toaster) it's supposed to warn you (because it is crazy expensive) but that feature doesn't work either. I have had four different companies work on the system over the years. Longest stretch I had without a failure was about two years.

"Constant rotation of service providers"
This is our second geothermal unit installed in the same house in 19 years. The first was a ClimateMaster (sold as Carrier). Both units have had a plethora of maintenance issues. Worse still is the continual shell game of service providers. The installing company was bought out by another. The tech who installed the unit left for who knows where. Now we can't find a repair company that knows anything about the heat pump. The company which bought the original recommended we find someone else, as they aren't comfortable working on the units they install. The last repair company (recommended as "experts" in geothermal), just spent 2 hours working on unit and it is faulting more now then before they looked at it. I like the idea of geothermal. But after 19 years, it's just too expensive to try to save energy. We've probably averaged $500-$1,000 per year in repair costs. Not to mention time wasted, water leaks, and time spent in a cold house.

Had a geo-thermal system installed in September 2010. I have had operational problems since day one. 1st contractor was so bad I secured another authorized one. He came once and said I was to far away. The third has tried many times to fix problems ($ 2,000 worth) and has giving up. I have been told it will take 2 new wells and new piping to the cost of $12,000. I have called and written Water furnace and was told that they have no control over their dealers and I am on my own. Getting bids on heat pump.
