Relatively unknown in Australia, ground-source heat pumps are one way to reduce the amount of energy used in cooling and heating while still maintaining a comfortable home. Heat pumps are not a new technology and most households already have one-the fridge.

The pipes at the back are hot compared to the inside of the fridge, as these pipes emit heat removed from inside. Ground source heat pumps are exclusively powered by the energy of the sun, which heats up the water present in the earth and keeps its temperature constant.

They produce around 4kW of heat for each kW of electricity consumed, which results in a % cost-effectiveness ratio. The generally accepted ‘budget’ figure is £1, per kW capacity. A m², four-bedroom house, built to Building Regulations’ standard, is likely to need an 8kW heat pump. The ground source heat pump is likely to cost around £6,£7, the balance being the installation cost which can vary significantly with the ground conditions.

Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) differ in size and complexity, so pinpointing a typical cost is tricky. The Energy Saving Trust (EST) estimates it can cost between £10, and £18, to install one in your home.

The payback period (the time it takes for the initial cost of the system to be recouped in energy savings) is also difficult to. Ground source heat pumps are very well suited to commercial buildings, especially those which have a need for cooling in summer as well as heating in winter.

However, expert design and installation are critical in achieving high carbon savings and low running costs. Heat Pumps for Commercial and Industrial Premises. Many businesses trying to cut down on their carbon footprint and reduce energy bills are starting to look at heat pumps for a long-term cost effective solution to heating a busy office.

According to the Energy Savings Trust last year, something like a ground source heat pump could save and make a business or household without a gas supply. A heat pump can be an efficient alternative to a standard home heating system.

Moreover, during the cooling season, its function can be reversed, and it becomes an air conditioner. Heating and cooling buildings using ground-source heat pump systems (also known as geothermal heat pumps) are becoming more and more popular.

Ground-source heat pump systems can be used widely in commercial-building applications and, with proper installation, offer great potential for the commercial sector, where increased efficiency and reduced heating and cooling costs are important.

Through using a loop that is installed underground, ground source pumps transfer heat from the ground into a property or commercial building to provide heating or preheat water. The efficiency of the system is gauged by the ratio of units of heat output for each unit of electricity used to power the ground source heat pump.

The geothermal heat pump, also known as the ground source heat pump, is a highly efficient renewable energy technology that is gaining wide acceptance for both residential and commercial buildings. Geothermal heat pumps are used for space heating and cooling, as well as water heating.

The Renewable Heat Incentive can be received by owners of non-domestic buildings for 20 years based on the metered heat. A ground or air source heat pump can reduce the cost of heating your business because less energy is needed to generate the same amount of heat.

You will also be shielded long term from the volatility in fossil fuel prices, which, when rising, can generate a considerable extra cost to a business. Ground-source heat pumps deliver more heat (or cooling) per unit of electricity consumed than air-source heat pumps. Since nearly all ground-source heat pumps rely on water or a water-antifreeze mixture to carry heat to or from the ground, the heat pumps themselves are actually a type of water-source heat pump—that is, they are designed to Author: Buildinggreen.

The history of Ground Source Heat Pumps dates to the early 20 th century when the idea of extracting energy from the earth using a heat pump was first proposed and patented in Switzerland. Roughly 40 years later inthe first ground source heat pump (also called GSHP) system was installed in Canada, and is still in operation today.

The Growing Importance of Ground Heat Pumps. A ground source heat pump proves to be one of the most sustainable and cost-efficient heating/cooling systems that are currently available on the market.

Given its capacity for providing a different range of services, such as heat generation, hot water, proper humidity levels and air cooling, a ground heat pump has the potential of becoming the. Ground Source Heat Pumps For Commercial Use Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) can provide heating and hot water for a range of residential and commercial properties by extracting heat from the ground.

This means a home or business can use clean, low carbon, consistent energy all year round. Application Guide AG 3 Introduction This application guide is written to assist the designer in Geothermal heat pump design.

Ground source heat pumps are a lot more energy efficient and cost effective than traditional heating systems found in most homes and buildings. This is because although they do need a small amount of electricity in order to run, heat pump systems don’t burn any kind of fuel in order to produce their heat and use only the natural temperature.

Heat pumps are typically used to pull heat out of the air or ground to heat a home or office building, but they can be reversed to cool a building. In a way, if you know how an air conditioner works, then you already know a lot about how a heat pump works.

This is because heat pumps and air conditioners operate in a very similar way. The study presents a life-cycle analysis (LCA) of an innovative system for space conditioning. The system layout is obtained starting from a ground-source heat pump and including a thermal storage. Ground source energy systems create a recycling of energy using a ground-coupled heat exchanger (piping underground), a heat pump, and a distribution system (forced air or radiant) to circulate warm or cool air throughout a building.

In the summer, heat from the building is stored in the ground in order to keep the building cool. Heat pumps are a form of heat engine that uses mechanical work to transfer heat from a low temperature source to a higher temperature sink.

There are a wide range of applications of heat pumps but in this context we are concerned with transferring heat between buildings and the external environment – either rejecting heat to the environment and cooling the building or extracting heat and Cited by: 9.

Ground Source Heat Pumps. Does your commercial building use a lot of heating and have available space outside. If so then it could be worth looking at investing in a ground source heat pump to provide your heating and hot water needs.

Pipes buried underground absorb heat from the ground at low temperatures into a fluid inside the pipe. A final alternative for our hoped-for, all heat pump building is to provide water-source heat pumps for exterior zones. Water-source systems discharge/extract heat from water flowing in a closed fluid loop.

If anything, they are simpler and more dependable than air-source systems, since they operate at a much more constant, and cooler, temperature. Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are among the most energy-efficient technologies for providing HVAC and water heating. Setup costs are higher than for conventional systems, but the difference is usually returned in energy savings in 3 to 10 years.
