Numerical and experimental analysis of a horizontal ground-coupled heat pump system.
The primary heating device is a ground-coupled heat pump (HP); The primary cooling device is a ground-coupled heat exchanger for passive cooling (PC)--direct cooling of the CCA return water by means of passive heat rejection to the fluid circulated through the borehole heat exchanger (BHE).
Ground-coupled heat pump (GCHP) systems are a common solution for space conditioning in many European countries, the United States, and Canada, either for heating or cooling purposes, in a wide range of energy duties.
The model was then used for a case study: an office building located in Chicago with a ground-coupled heat pump. The results showed that the build-up of heat will increase ground temperature at the middle of adjacent boreholes by about 3[degrees]C (5.4[degrees]F) after a 20-year operation, which will degrade the yearly performance of the ground-coupled heat pump system by about 1.4%.
Optimization of cooling-dominated hybrid ground-coupled heat pump systems.
Ground-coupled heat pump (GCHP) systems use stored energy in the ground at a relatively constant temperature as both a heat source and a heat sink so that they offer higher energy efficiency than air-source systems.

The pipes are installed in the boreholes drilled during construction of a vertical ground-coupled heat pump system.
Ground-coupled heat pump systems can save up to 50% of the energy that would otherwise be used by conventional heating and cooling systems (EERE 2007).
