Geoexchange Ground Exchanger Design

Ground Loop Design

Design Heat Loss: 249 kw (850 kBTU/hr)
Heat Pump Capacity: 65.4 kw (223.4 kBTU/hr)
Geo-exchange System Type: Hybrid Horizontal Closed Loop Ground Exchanger
Location: Tachie, BC

For this project, the geo-exchange heating system was designed as a hybrid system. The geo-exchange heat pump and ground exchanger were sized to provide 26% of the peak heating load and 63% of the annual heating requirements as part of a mechanical system retrofit for an existing elementary school.  The existing propane boiler system was maintained to provide supplementary heating when required.
