Many people are familiar with geothermal heat pump systems, using small, geothermal heat pumps, distributed throughout the building, that are coupled with a ground source heat exchanger. These systems operate very efficiently since heat rejected to the grou nd loop in the summer is stored and extracted in the winter. Today, project teams are also considering central geothermal systems.

Objectives

  • Identify the key differentiators from distributed systems
  • Summarize the design and operation ofcentral geothermal systems
  • Explain how the system offers airside system flexibility
  • Identify key design considerations for central geothermal systems
  • Explain how the system offers premium efficiency and performance benefits for building owners (centralized maintenance, piping, acoustics etc.)
  • Summarize the energy analysis results comparing central geothermal systems, 90.1 baseline and alternative systems
