HVAC Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps are fast becoming the leading technology for heating and cooling in energy efficient buildings. When using a geothermal heat pump for heating efficiencies are 50% to 70% higher than other heating systems and cooling efficiencies are 20% to 40% higher than conventional air conditioners. Better yet, these savings do not require complicated or difficult to operate systems. Geothermal heat pumps rely on off-the-shelf components that are familiar in conventional air conditioning. The underground components typically have a 50 year warranty (Source: International Ground Source Heat Pump Association).

In this course, we will explore all aspects of the geothermal heat pump, including the various installation types, and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each type.
