This authoritative guide provides a basis for understanding the emerging technology of ground source heat pumps. It equips engineers, architects, planners, regulators and geologists with the fundamental skills needed to manipulate the ground’s huge capacity to store, supply and receive heat, and to implement technologies (such as heat pumps) to exploit that capacity for space heating and cooling.
The author has geared the book towards understanding ground source heating and cooling from the ground side (the geological aspects), rather than solely the building aspects.
An Introduction to Thermogeology: Ground Source Heating & Cooling explains the science behind thermogeology and offers practical guidance on different design options.
The use of the heat stored in the shallow subsurface for space heating (ground source heat) is widely used in North America and many European nations, such as Sweden, and is regarded as the most important and reliable ‘green’ space heating technology. In many nations, including Britain, the technology remains poorly understood and under used. This situation is about to change, however, with the UK market for ground source heat pumps growing at over 100% per annum.This book offers practical guidance and will equip engineers, planners and geologists with the fundamental skills to assess and implement this new technology and to introduce them to the science behind thermogeology.
