Editorial Reviews

Review

'A comprehensive and up-to-date guide which I would recommend to any installer, engineer or architect for the design, selection and installation of domestic geothermal heat pump systems.' Professor Gerhard Faninger, University of Klagenfurt, Austria 'This book, firmly grounded on the European experience of a heat pump engineer and manufacturer, contains a wealth of information both theoretical and practical which will be of great assistance to both system designers and installers.' Tony Bowen, president, Heat Pump Association, UK 'This little book describes the installation details of 12 domestic heat pump configurations in a repeated format and would be most useful as a general introduction for installers.' International Journal of Ambient Energy

I bought this book thinking it would be helpful with a geothermal heating system I was planning to install. The book appears to be no more than a translated product guide for various models of geothermal heat pumps that the author manufactures in Germany. There were some useful equations for various heat calculations but nothing really all that useful. I returned the book.

I am a licensed professional civil engineer specializing in water supply wells (22 yrs). I purchased this book to learn about geothermal heat pump systems, to the point of design competency. This book is basically an over view and will not in my opinion serve that need. It is extremely terse. I suggest a revised edition include many more examples and more basic explanations of the processes.

Do not buy this book!! This book does not offer any valuable information beyond that what can be found with a 15min Google search. There are no design formulas and no valuable engineering information! If it would cost 10Euros I could maybe pay for it, but again I would not use it. It is near the top of my list with the worst books EVER!
* I am sad that I cannot rank it with negative stars, since it is consuming time without giving information!

I have been installing Water Furnace heat pumps for the past eight years. When attending a software training class for integrated systems with geothermal, I found this book at the company. While the author does present his own products as the primary references for systems, the concepts and application are very well explained. From experience, the information is accurate and leading edge. Not just theory, but practical applications from working in with the technology for decades. While the theory may be beyond the DIY installer of geothermal (which I would not recommend anyway), it is accurate and highly relevant to the field today. In the unlikely event that you wish to move heat from the barnyard to the house, I found fascinating (and true, I kid not), charts of how many BTUs per cow you can get in energy output for thermal collectors located in the stable.

Highly recommend for your library.
