Geothermal Heat Pump Systems Part IV | Recommendations for Operation and Maintenance

In the first three parts in our series on geothermal heat pump systems, we discussed ways to determine if this type of system is right your facility; how to get started with design by conducting a formation thermal conduc­tivity test and how to distinguish between the types of heat pumps available. Once you have decided

Geothermal Heat Pump Systems Part III | System Options

Last month, in part II of our series, we shared some tips about getting started with design and construction of a geothermal heat pump system by conducting a formation thermal conductivity test. The next step is to understand the different design options available for the system. There are two distinct types of heat pumps that
