Ground as a source of heat for heat pumps
Heat pumps are an ideal solution for use in newly built passive and energy-plus buildings. One of the many problems present in such construction is the choice of the operational parameters of the lower heat source and the selection of a ground regeneration system which would enable effective regeneration in a short period of time and at a minimal cost. This article presents the heat analysis of the ground from which heat is obtained for heating purposes. The author also analyses ground heating, as the heat is delivered to it via regeneration systems.
