    Hello all! Been sand bagging here for quite a while and joined up
    When I had a question. I currently have a OWD by central and it
    Is hooked up to a hot air furnace thru a water to air heat exchanger.

    May question is... Has anybody tried hooking up a geo loop to the heat
    exchanger for air conditioning in the summer? I'm thinking the exchanger
    Will sweat to much and hurt something in my furnace. Any thaughts
    would be appreciated.

    I've mentioned this idea on an HVAC discussion board and was told that the exchanger temp won't be cold enough to get proper de-humidification of the air.
    I find this a little hard to believe based on the amount of sweating my cold water pipes and toilet tanks do but haven't bothered to experiment with what you're suggesting.
