3 What is a heat pump? Examples: Heat Pumps – Definition, HistoryWhat is a heat pump?According to the second law of thermodynamics heat cannot spontaneously flow from a colder location to a hotter areaAny mechanical device that moves energy from one space to another is considered a ‘heat pump’Modern heat pumps rely on refrigerants that easily change phase from liquid to gas and back to achieve heat transferExamples:Brine plants used to make iceIce rink plantsRefrigeratorsAir conditionersReversing air conditioners – air source heat pumpsGround source heat pumps
4 GSHP systems offer other advantages in addition to energy efficiency Heat Pumps: AdvantagesGSHP systems offer other advantages in addition to energy efficiencyNo externally exposed mechanical equipmentNo external noiseNo impact from weather, vandalismLess mechanical room space, reduced infrastructureMay reduce structural componentsMay increase zoning and comfort at little additional costReduced controls complexityReduced maintenance
5 No noise pollution from external equipment (eliminated) Load sharing Heat Pumps: AdvantagesLEED, green advantages2 to 15+ energy points typical of most LEED projects using GSHP systemsReduced CO2 emissions, even considering point source of electrical powerNo noise pollution from external equipment (eliminated)Load sharing
6 Heat Pumps – Definition, History Air conditioners and air-source heat pumps transfer heat from inside houses to the air outside.Refrigerators transfer heat from food into the kitchen.HEATHEAT

10 Heat Pumps - ExamplesThe average sheet of ice for a hockey rink can heat two or more Olympic size swimming pools, with heat to spare, with the only significant additional cost being circulation pump power
11 Heat Pumps – HistoryHeat pumps are not new -1748: William Cullen demonstrates artificial refrigeration1834: Jacob Perkins builds a practical refrigerator with diethyl ether1852: Lord Kelvin describes heat pump theory1855–1857: Peter Ritter von Rittinger develops and builds the first heat pump using Lord Kelvin’s theoryIce-making ammonia brine plants were in use in the latter part of the 19th century

16 Heat Pumps – Earth Coupled Ground source heat pumps are tied to the earth for better efficiency, regardless of climateMost GSHPs rely on water to carry energy to and from the earth instead of exchanging heat with the airSome GSHP units utilize direct exchange (DX) by placing metallic lines in the earth to carry the refrigerant to achieve a phase change directlyThe amount of energy consumed to heat or cool with this technology is far less than any conventional mechanical systemTransferring energyAcquiring heat – space heating - is a renewable cycle, as GSHPs capture energy from near-surface solar gain and natural thermal gradientRejecting heat – space cooling – utilizes the nearly unlimited capacity of the earth to dissipate energy, and in some situations, permit a GSHP system to store energy to be reclaimed later
17 GSHP Equipment – GSHP vs. Conventional WSHP Conventional WSHP equipment will only tolerate EWT ranges of 50°F to 80°F – this product is commonly used in commercial applications using a boiler and chillerGSHP equipment is designed to accept a wide range of EWT, typically an extended range of 20°F to 120°FThis wider temperature bandwidth capability allows for the economic installation of closed loop ground heat exchangers

20 Most energy ratings or calculations describe: GSHP EfficiencyMost energy ratings or calculations describe:What you pay forvs.What you get
21 COP = Btuh delivered / Btuh consumed GSHP Efficiency - HeatingGSHP systems routinely operate at efficiencies exceeding 300% in the heating mode, regardless of altitude or outside climate conditionsFor a comparison, the best conventional furnaces and boilers operate at 90% efficiency, at sea levelHeating performance is usually rated by a ratio expressed as COP (coefficient of performance):COP = Btuh delivered / Btuh consumed
22 EER and SEER are not the same! GSHP Efficiency - CoolingGSHP systems routinely operate at efficiencies exceeding 15 EER in the cooling mode, regardless of altitude or outside climate conditionsEER = Energy Efficient Ratio, orEER = Cooling Btuh capacity / WattsFor a comparison, the best conventional air conditioners operate at 14 to 15 SEER, but are dependent upon outside air temperature for efficiencySEER = Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio, orSEER = Seasonal Cooling Energy (Btu) removed / WattsHrEER and SEER are not the same!
23 GSHP efficiency, the real world: GSHP Efficiency – Residential ExamplesGSHP efficiency, the real world:3,200 ft² residence, Montrose, Colorado, $325 per year to heat and cool – forced air, water-air HP, new construction3,600 ft² residence, Gunnison, Colorado, $250 per year to heat – radiant floor, water-water HP, new construction2,700 ft² residence, Golden, Colorado, $355 per year to heat, cool & make 100% of the domestic hot water – forced air, water-air/water HP, retrofit of 25+ year old homeEach of these examples use separate power meters to monitor the electricity consumed for the GSHP system
24 Example analysis – 70,000 ft² assisted living facility: Heat Pumps – Mechanical System ComparisonsExample analysis – 70,000 ft² assisted living facility:A “professional” energy evaluation service predicted the GSHP system would cost double the conventional system operating cost, yet later admitted they did not understand how to model the GSHP option on their eQuest software; consider also that the client paid a substantial amount for this evaluation. Client compared the conventional operating cost with a similar sized building with equivalent use/occupancy and confirmed our estimate to be more accurate.
25 Example analysis – 70,000 ft² assisted living facility: Heat Pumps – Mechanical System ComparisonsExample analysis – 70,000 ft² assisted living facility:
26 Typical operating cost ranges, commercial closed loop systems GSHP –Commercial Applications – CostingTypical operating cost ranges, commercial closed loop systems$0.15 to $0.50 per ft² per year operating cost$0.05 to $0.15 per ft² per year maintenanceTypical installation (1st cost) ranges, commercial$15 to $20 per ft², 2-pipe system, packaged heat pumps, with ground loop$18 to $25 per ft², 4-pipe system with hydronic fan coils, central water-water heat pumps, with ground loopThese install costs are often within the same ranges as conventional mechanical applications. GSHP systems may be competitive on a 1st cost basis for larger commercial applications!
27 Example – Hirschfeld Towers, Denver Housing Authority Heat Pumps: Commercial Example, RetrofitExample – Hirschfeld Towers, Denver Housing AuthorityOriginally built in 1960’s, remodeled in 2008DHA architect wanted no external mechanical equipmentNeighbors complained for 20+ years about condenser noiseOriginal system very high maintenance (low bid design, low bid installation – highest operating and service cost after employee overhead!)Pre-modeling determined that 100% loop driven system would be a wash with loop+combined chiller hybrid; hybrid system also added back more maintenance, op. cost, controls and infrastructure (ESCO wanted this option but was reminded by client that outside equipment was unacceptable!)Optimum system – decoupled GSHP design

40 Certified GeoExchange Designer (CGD) GSHP Systems – Design TeamExperienceCertified GeoExchange Designer (CGD)Certification by AEETraining/testing by IGSHPAComprehends site and potential closed and/or open loop options early in evaluation processRequires a detailed load calculation as early as possibleMakes a qualified comparison of GSHP and quality conventional options, including a life-cycle cost analysis (LCA)Understands what is necessary, and more importantly, what is a waste of time and budgetInitiates due diligence throughout the evaluation, design, installation and start-up process
42 Potential red flags, Design Team: GSHP Systems – Design TeamPotential red flags, Design Team:Engineer/designer has immediate negative perception and/or history with GSHP systemsUses wrong evaluation software, or incorrectly uses tool, to kill GSHP option - ie, uses eQuest to “design” a ground loop – eQuest is not a loop design tool!Believes all that is necessary for a loop design is a peak load calculationThinks a closed loop system will always need a conventional backup systemBelieves the 1st cost of a GSHP system is always highestThinks the controls and sequence of operation will be more complex for a GSHP optionWants to run a thermal conductivity test before the system is pre-modeled, or worse, calls a TC testing service and asks them to do a TC test without any parameters for hole depth or pipe size (vertical) or probe test depth (horizontal)For an open loop option asks a water well driller for cost of a water well completion, instead of going to a hydrogeologist to design both an extraction and reinjection well systemDue diligence excludes accessing successful design and installation resources for evaluation, design and start-upRequires a vault between a closed ground loop and building, no matter the situation (goes back to understanding what is necessary, and more importantly, what is a waste of time and budget)Due diligence for the ground loop design amounts to calling a driller and asking “how much hole per ton?....”

44 GSHP Systems require the following determinations for sizing: GSHP Systems – Design MethodologyGSHP Systems require the following determinations for sizing:Load calculations for the application – how much energy is required for heating and cooling to meet setpointMatch the HP equipment to the load and application specificsGround loopClosed loop – sufficient closed loop heat exchanger designOpen loop – sufficient water flow rate to meet HP and load requirements
45 GSHP Systems – Design Methodology Note: Closed loop ground heat exchangers require that the ground loop have sufficient capacity to maintain a specific range of EWT to the equipment to operate indefinitely – they cannot be treated as an unlimited pipeline of energyMost closed loop systems are designed to feed GSHP equipment with an EWT range from 30°F to 90°F, although most equipment will tolerate extreme EWT ranges of 20°F to 120°F if sufficient fluid flow is maintainedClosed loop design require calculations involving loads, equipment performance and knowledge of the host geologyOne size does not fit all – rule of thumb methods cannot be used for the design of these systems!
46 Load Calculations – Residential GSHP Systems – Design MethodologyLoad Calculations – ResidentialUsually a load that is driven by climatePeak heat loss and heat gain are typically sufficientLoad durations for ground loop calculations are determined by seasonal durationsLoad Calculations – CommercialTypically defined as internally drivenFor example, most commercial buildings and schools are cooling dominated, even in winterRequires a monthly energy load calculation
48 GSHP Systems – Design Methodology, Residential Load durations are calculated based upon peak loads against climate bin data
49 Common mistakes with commercial “design” efforts GSHP Systems – Design Methodology, CommercialCommon mistakes with commercial “design” effortsOperating and LCA calculations completed by people with no design experience, no competence with defining or identifying variablesLoop design completed by asking looping contractor how many holes will be needed (looping contractor responds with hard number without even asking for the loads, equipment flow rate, etc.)Number of circuits and depth based on rule of thumb “design”; ie, one hole per ton….Run TC test without knowing anything about the building (loads, equipment) or consideration of drilling parameters (depth, pipe size)A ground loop is a key part of the mechanical system – budgeting, evaluation, design and testing efforts are the last things that should be based on rule-of-thumb assumptions and guess-work by unqualified assets!
