Heating and Cooling with Ground-Source Heat Pumps in Cold and Moderate Climates Fundamentals and Basic Concepts
Heating and Cooling with Ground-Source Heat Pumps in Cold and Moderate Climates: Fundamentals and Basic Concepts covers fundamentals and design principles of vertical and horizontal indirect and direct expansion closed-loop, as well as ground and surface-water ground-source heat pump systems. It explains the thermodynamic aspects of mechanical and thermochemical compression cycles of geothermal heat pumps, and describes the energetic, economic, and environmental aspects associated with the use of ground-source heat pump systems for heating and cooling residential and commercial/institutional buildings in moderate and cold climates.
- Based on the author's more than 30 years of technical experience
- Focuses on ground-source heat pump technologies that can be successfully applied in moderate and cold climates
- Discusses technical aspects as well as the most common and uncommon application fields of basic system configurations
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.
