Heating and Cooling with Ground-Source Heat Pumps in Cold and Moderate Climates Design Principles, Potential Applications and Case Studies
Heating and Cooling with Ground-Source Heat Pumps in Cold and Moderate Climates: Design Principles, Potential Applications and Case Studies focuses on applications and cases studies of ground-source heat pumps in moderate and cold climates. It details technical aspects (such as materials, thermal fluid carriers and pumping, and drilling/trenching technologies), as well as the most common and uncommon application fields for basic system configurations. The principles of system integrations and applications in moderate and cold climates (such as hybrid, solar-assisted, thermo-syphon, foundation, mines, snow melting, district heating and cooling ground-source heat pump systems, etc.) are also presented, each followed by case studies.
- Based on the author's more than 30 years of technical experience
- Discusses ground-source heat pump technologies that can be successfully applied in moderate and cold climates
- Presents several case studies, including successful energy results, as well as the main lessons learned
This work is aimed at designers of HVAC systems, as well as geological, mechanical, and chemical engineers implementing environmentally-friendly heating and cooling technologies for buildings.
