This course describes the best design and installation practices for ground source heat pump systems. These systems offer low first-cost solutions to energy efficiency. Focusing on vertical ground loop heat exchanger systems, the course covers energy analysis, equipment selection, drilling technologies, testing requirements, hydronic system design and system controls. An economic analysis of ground source vs. more traditional systems is discussed. Also, the factors necessary to design an effective and efficient ground source system are described. Participants will learn all that is necessary for successful ground source heat pump systems, specifically horizontal bore systems, surface water systems and open loop systems. The course will be presented in English.
