New and Underutilized Technology: Commercial Ground Source Heat Pumps
The following information outlines key deployment considerations for commercial ground source heat pumps within the Federal sector.
Commercial ground source heat pumps are ground source heat pump with loops that feed multiple packaged heat pumps and a single ground source water loop. Unit capacity is typically 1-10 tons and may be utilized in an array of multiple units to serve a large load.
Condensing boilers are appropriate for housing, service, office, and research and development applications.
Key Factors for Deployment
FEMP has made great progress with commercial ground source heat pump technology deployment within the Federal sector. Primary barriers deal with design criteria and installation infrastructure to reduce installation costs and increase effectiveness.
