Residential Ground Source Heat Pump

residential ground source heat pump
    ground source
  • The ground or soil below the frost line is being used as the heat source or heat sink for a heat pump.
  • Solar heat stored in the ground that can be utilised by heat pumps (see Borehole).
  • Designed for people to live in
  • Providing accommodations in addition to other services
  • Occupied by private houses
  • used or designed for residence or limited to residences; "a residential hotel"; "a residential quarter"; "a residential college"; "residential zoning"
  • (The Residents) The Residents is an American avant-garde music and visual arts group who have been active since 1969.
  • A residential area is a land use in which housing predominates, as opposed to industrial and commercial areas. Housing may vary significantly between, and through, residential areas. These include single family housing, multi-family residential, or mobile homes.
    heat pump
  • apparatus that extracts heat from a liquid that is at a higher temperature than its surroundings; can be used to transfer heat from a reservoir outside in order to heat a building
  • A heat pump is a machine or device that moves heat from one location (the 'source') at a lower temperature to another location (the 'sink' or 'heat sink') at a higher temperature using mechanical work or a high-temperature heat source.
  • A device which uses compression and decompression of gas to heat and/or cool a house.
  • A device that transfers heat from a colder area to a hotter area by using mechanical energy, as in a refrigerator

Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs), also known as geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), have been widely used for years in developed countries due to their higher energy utilization efficiencies than those of both conventional heating and cooling systems. However, they have been applied to the Turkish residential buildings since 1997. This study deals with the exergetic performance evaluation of two types of GSHP systems installed in Turkey based on the actual operational data. The fist one is a GSHP system designed and constructed for investigating geothermal resources with low temperatures, while the second one is a GSHP system with a vertical ground heat exchanger. In the analysis, four balance (mass, energy, entropy and exergy ) equations are applied to the two GSHP systems considered for modeling purposes in a tabulated form. Exergy (second law) efficiency values for both systems are given, while exergy destructions in each of the system components are determined to assess their individual performances by presenting the potential for improvements. It may be concluded that the exergetic evaluation method presented here may be applied to other GSHP systems worldwide as a useful tool, which is a way to sustainable development.

Sustainable Live-Work Space, Staffordshire - Roof View
Location: Staffordshire Gross Area: 50 to 99 square metres [sqm] This unit is one of many new concept extensions we are involved in designing. It uses sheep’s wool insulation and features a green roof. Both of these aspects offer a sustainable, environmentally friendly approach to architecture. There is a new incentive for clients to think and be environmental responsible. The Government's renewable energy policy aims to put the UK on a path to cut its carbon dioxide emissions by 2020. Thankfully significant carbon dioxide savings can be gained by displacing fossil fuels. To date it is hard to find unobtrusive sustainable energy systems to be used in conservation areas and on listed buildings. The Ground Source Heat Pump changes that. It is a renewable energy source, acting as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel. This will provide a 100% solution to heating and hot water. As heat pumps do not require a flue there are no emissions of any sort. The environmental benefits are the substantial reduction of carbon emissions. When combined with Juice by Npower, this can attains a carbon neutral solution.
