Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2008, Vol. 80 Issue 9, p27
The article discusses how the cost premium of closed-loop heat pumps can be minimized by simplifying in-ground piping and above-ground HVAC systems. It talks about the benefits of simplifying in-ground piping and above-ground HVAC systems, where in it asserts that it gives possibility of enhancing low energy-consumption characteristics of unitary heat pumps in buildings. Furthermore, it states the recommended loop types which provide easy control and usually least expensive.
