In Spring 2013, we began publishing a series of articles on Performance Monitoring that highlight the lessons learned from over 100,000 hours of geothermal heat pump system monitoring. The series consists of the following posts:
- Ground loop performance — how system monitoring can be used to guarantee your ground loop design and installation.
- Guaranteed savings — a look at actual system performance relative to the example Performance Guarantee Contract described here.
- GSHP system performance — how the heat pump, ground loop, and system operation affect the installed coefficient of performance.
