It has been widely speculated, but as yet unsubstantiated, that commercial ground-source heat pump systems have significantly lower service and maintenance costs than alternative HVAC systems. This paper describes efforts recently undertaken to survey commercial buildings with groundsource systems. Data from 25 such systems are presented here including total maintenance costs in dollars per hundred square feet per year both for in-house and for contractor provided maintenance. The total… Expand
Comparing maintenance costs of geothermal heat pump systems with other HVAC systems: Preventive maintenance actions and total maintenance costs
Total annual heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) maintenance costs were determined for 20 schools in the Lincoln, Nebraska, Public School District. Each school examined provides coolingExpand
