This presentation by Mark Nussbaum PE, will review the basic concepts of ground source heat pump systems, how they work to provide climate control for buildings, and what specific features often make them an excellent choice in historic buildings. We will look at some of the challenges of integrating modern MEP systems into historic buildings, work-around strategies for these challenges, and the need to sometimes compromise system performance to allow the preservation of historic building fabric. We will review case studies of past projects including Glessner House, and Pleasant Home, among others. We will also have an opportunity to tour a portion of the recently installed ground source heat pump system at Glessner House.
