Ground source heat pump book from ASHRAE
ASHRAE’s “Geothermal Heating and Cooling: Design of Ground-Source Heat Pump Systems” book provides benchmarks, design strategies and information necessary for engineers to avoid problems such as inefficient pumping, high-cost ground-loop designs, inadequate outside air provisions and unnecessarily complex control schemes. It includes coverage of closed-loop ground (ground-coupled), groundwater, surface water, GSHP equipment and GSHP piping. Additional information on site characterization has been added including a new hydro-geological chapter, as well as a new section with results of recent field studies, energy and demand characteristics, and updated information to optimize GSHP system cost.
