Geothermal heat pump in the passive house concept
An actual problem is reducing the cost of engineering systems maintenance of buildings and constructions. These costs include transportation of energy resources from source to consumer, complexity of the heating systems, caused by a large amount of equipment, and as a consequence, the presence of excessive heat losses. One solution is construction of buildings that meet modern energy efficiency requirements. A set of parameters that contribute to the implementation of the "Passive House" concept was considered, including the use of geothermal heat pumps for the heating system as an alternative production of thermal energy. The main characteristics of the heat pump were established. It was revealed that the cost of heating and air conditioning will not exceed the maximum. The economic efficiency of the chosen technical solution was considered. This research has the prospect of further development.
