Abstract

A Ground Source Heat Exchange (GSHE) system is a heating and/or air-cooling system that uses the Earth's ability to store heat in the ground and water thermal masses. The presentation will discuss the different types of GSHE as well as the pros and cons; the benefits of GSHE; payback; determining if GSHE is right for a project; local projects in which GSHE was installed; and what the stimulus package has set aside for GSHE as well as tax credits and incentives.
