From the Author
After writing my first book, Geothermal HVAC, Green Heating and Cooling, I was determined to get back to work and enjoy some of the validation that comes from being a published author of a professional/technical book from McGraw-Hill. Indeed, the validation came. The problem was that it was written for the layman; designed to provide readers with the knowledge needed to make educated decisions when entering into a geothermal HVAC project.
The demand was overwhelming for a comprehensive textbook on the subject of geothermal HVAC engineering. As a result, McGraw-Hill commissioned myself Greg Cunniff, and Carl Orio to write this book, Modern Geothermal HVAC Engineering and Controls Applications.
We are confident you will find the information for which you are looking within the pages of this book. There is no doubt it will be a bestseller, as it is already outpaced the sales of the first book, even before publication. Thank you for your interest.
About the Author
Jay's passion for geothermal air-conditioning and heating started during a repair to his own home air-conditioning system on Labor Day weekend in 1989. Frustrated by the extreme tropical climate which had added to the premature failure of his air-conditioning system, he modified his home air conditioner to become a ground water-cooled system.
As he explored the opportunities which resulted from this successful discovery, he found there were others that shared his vision.
Jay founded EggGeothermal in 1990 to provide geothermal HVAC systems to the Florida market. The result was immediate acceptance as EggGeothermal did very well with the technology, being featured on several network affiliated news stations and featured in many newspapers and magazines, receiving many opportunities to train and speak on geothermal technologies.
With the resurgence of interest in sustainable technologies, EggGeothermal entered into a new age of acceptance, and was able to quickly take its place among the leaders in renewable energy technologies, specifically geothermal sourced applications.
Jay and co-author Brian Howard accepted the invitation to write a professional book from McGraw-Hill on the subject, and Geothermal HVAC, Green Heating and Cooling was published to a worldwide audience in 2010. The resulting validation and interest from publishing of this book have provided numerous opportunities for Mr. Egg.
Jay and co-writer Greg Cunniff accepted the opportunity to write a graduate-level textbook for McGraw-Hill. Modern Geothermal HVAC Engineering and Controls Applications will be published to a worldwide audience in April of 2013.
Jay currently focuses his professional efforts on geothermal consulting, writing, and speaking engagements. Among his clients are federal, state and local governments, developers, associations, and private entities.

This s laziness. Good technical description is difficult. Professional looking detailed and technically accurate and telling illustrations take are time intensive.
Regrettably I purchased this from amazon.
I also disagree with the author's vehemence about not recommending closed-loop geothermal systems for commercial projects. Standing columns and wells are fine in Florida and Northeast, but in the Midwest where the geology is different and cooling a little less dominant, closed loop systems can be effective. There are also add-ons to closed loop systems such as Greensleeves LLC's GeoModule software that can make closed loop systems efficient and effective even in very cooling-dominant applications.
But weighing the pluses and minuses, this is a book worth reading.
After the first book my main concern that there was not more technical information to read from this man. This second book, Modern Geothermal HVAC Engineering and Controls Applications, was an answer to both the first book and my questions.
Modern Geothermal HVAC Engineering and Controls Applications really goes over a lot. For any designer of closed loop, open loop, or standing column systems this is a book to buy and keep at your disposal.
Geothermal heating and air conditioning are rapidly becoming the superior solution worldwide for new homes, commercial and industrial facilities. It is elegant, clean, efficient and the most reliable technology available.
This book is a must buy for anyone in the Geothermal or HVAC industry.
