Different Types of Heat Pump Systems for Heating Homes & How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work

    Ground Source Heat Pump

    A ground source heat pump extracts the heat from the ground through five different types of geothermal loops (previous article), the heat having been absorbed into the ground from the summer sun.

    It uses this energy to supply heat to the dwelling hot water system, and in the form of under-floor heating, and it can also be used in the summer to cool the dwelling down by acting as an air conditioning unit.

    GSHP Components and Design

      A ground source heat pump comprises of the following components:

    Refrigerant

    This is a liquid with a much lower boiling point than water. Continue reading “Different Types of Heat Pump Systems for Heating Homes & How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work”

Types of Geothermal Ground Loops for use in Geothermal Energy Home Heating

    The UKs ground temperature averages between 8 and 13C. This heat is partly due to the earths internal heat emanating from its core of magna, but mainly from the heat of the sun in summer producing low level geothermal energy which the ground maintains, up to 20m below the surface.

    This heat can be exploited by use of a geothermal loop feeding a heat pump which transfers this heat to a refrigerant such HFC R-41-A. Continue reading “Types of Geothermal Ground Loops for use in Geothermal Energy Home Heating”

A Review of Alexander Graham Bell’s Contribution to Renewable Energy

      The industrial revolution that started in 18th century England brought about a rapid change in the economy through the introduction of power-driven machinery that facilitated mass production. This chain of developments soon led to other inventions and technological advancements that while contributing to the rapid material advancements of civilization, led to a huge increase in energy requirements and an alarming rate of depletion of fossil fuel sources such as coal and oil.

    The name of Alexander Graham Bell (born March 3, 1847, died August 2, 1922) strikes a bell” as the inventor of the telephone, patented on March 7, 1876. Continue reading “A Review of Alexander Graham Bell’s Contribution to Renewable Energy”
