Back to the Basics
This Geo-exchange repair was necessary to get the client up and running. The system was 8 years old, with a history of failed compressors, nuisance trips and high energy consumption. It had 5 commercial 3 phase heat pumps distributed around a 2 acre facility. We were called to solve the problem and get the system performing as it should.
- Poor mechanical design put radiant zones in series with heat pumps causing flowrates well outside of design range
- Poor system control had the heat pumps short cycling, running hotter than necessary and using backup heat
- Re-evaluate and determine design parameters for mechanical equipment and hydronic delivery
- De couple heating and heat pump loops, ensure design flowrate criteria are met
- Install intelligent control system that is capable of staging, setback, and interlocking with other equipment
- Install variable speed pressure controlled circulators for minimum energy consumption an maximum performance
