Watch how geothermal heat pumps heat and cool buildings by concentrating the naturally existing heat contained within the earth -- a clean, reliable, and renewable source of energy. Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), sometimes referred to as GeoExchange, earth-coupled, ground-source, or water-source heat pumps, have been in use since the late s. Home» Solution Centre» Business» Example: Commercial Building. Example: Commercial Building. If your commercial premises has a high heat demand exceeding 75kW, the largest capacity capable of a single unit manufactured by Kensa Heat Pumps, an effective solution is to link a series of Kensa ground source heat pumps in a modular cascaded system. SHOEBOX SERIES. Perfectly proportioned but packing a punch, the award-winning Kensa Shoebox series produces temperatures up to 65°C, yet features the quietest & smallest ground source heat pump on the market, offering an efficient, practical and affordable heating & hot water solution. ( ) Ground-source heat pumps produce savings for commercial building. BUILDING ENVELOPE AND HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEMS The R-factor of the roof and the walls of the building is R The building’s double-glazed windows occupy is one of the larger commercial office buildings in the.

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.
