Plus, right now, I'm way too lazy to do it. I'd like to do radiant in-floor heating if I went with geothermal and all my floors are finished. Hell, I'd love to drop the same amount of cash as I would spend on a devent used vehicle and be off of propane.
my grandfather spenty less than 4500 dollars and used his existing water well.

I was happy with how it worked. I did find it has a leak, slight drip coming from the relief valve, the padding under the carpet has gotten wet for 6 or 8 feet outside of the closet, so this should give me more negotiating power.
As far as A/C goes, we work all day too, i have 2 window units in my little house here, and they seam to do the trick. We'll bring those to the new place, and have to hope it is enough.
A leaky relief valve is often caused by something else, most commonly a bad expansion tank(if diaphrapm), if it's a old style air/water tank it could just be waterlogged, bad fill valve would be next on the list and of course it could simply be a bad relief valve. Does it only leak when it heating up and then stop when it's cooling down?
