A comprehensive study and resource manual that serves as a “best practices” guide for the design, installation, and maintenance of geothermal systems, this book draws on the author’s more than 30 years of hands-on geothermal field experience. The text covers geothermal systems and controls from their widespread introduction to the U.S. market in the early 1970s to the multistage ultra-high-efficiency systems of today. Study topics include both open-loop and closed-loop applications, subsurface geology, loop design, water chemistry, antifreeze solutions, system installation, and controls. Emphasis is placed on identifying common installation and service mistakes, and on learning from those mistakes.
This book gives business owners, sales staff, installers, and technicians a step up on the competition and imparts the knowledge necessary to maintain consumer confidence and appreciation. Geothermal systems represent one of the best means available for meeting the growing interest in renewable energy technology.
