Combination Geothermal HVAC or Ground Source Heat Pumps are among the most versatile heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems available. It is common to have combination systems both residentially and commercially. Using a combination of floor heating and radiant panel heating is common but Geomaster isn’t limited to that. Any combination of fan coil/s, slab heating, slab cooling, radiators, pool heating and hot water heating can be designed by our engineers.
Ground source heat pumps are especially well matched to underfloor heating and baseboard radiator systems which only require warm temperatures 40 °C to work effectively. Therefore they are ideal for open plan offices. Large surfaces such as floors, as opposed to radiators, distributes the heat more uniformly and allows for a lower water temperature. Wood or carpet floor coverings dampen this effect because the thermal transfer efficiency of these materials is lower than that of masonry floors such as tile andconcrete. Underfloor piping, ceiling or wall radiators can also be used for cooling in dry climates, although the temperature of the circulating water must be above the dew point to ensure that atmospheric humidity does not condense on the radiator.
Combination heat pumps are available that can produce forced air and circulating water simultaneously and individually. These systems are largely being used for houses that have a combination of air and liquid conditioning needs, for example central air conditioning and pool heating.
Solar heating collection can be incorporated as well. The life-giving sun provides us with the fuel of the future today. Energy, which you can now utilize easily and conveniently with a Solar Heating System, whether to enjoy a warm shower or to boost your central heating.
Roof mounted solar collectors are architecturally attractive and are designed to install easily no matter what style of roof your home may have. Seamlessly integrated with a hot water system and/or geothermal system, a Solar Heating System maintains high efficiency year round.
