The Geothermal Heat Pump Alternative - The Neff Experience.

Web Abstract: 
The John Henry Neff Schools (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) underwent a renovation of the elementary school and conversion of the high school as well as creating a 15,500 square foot connector between the buildings that required an evaluation of a new heating and air-conditioning system. This document describes the school district's experiences in researching and planning the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system and the eventual adoption of a geothermal heat pump (GHP) system. Included are results from a feasibility study that compared different HVAC systems, a summarization of the cooperative agreement between the school district and power company, and a description of the HVAC chosen and the energy savings realized. Appendices include a chronology of events of the GHP system analysis, and energy use statistical data from eight schools and their mechanical systems.
