In summer, the air conditioning plant can dissipate heat directly into the probes, cooling the building. This raises the average water temperature underground, so that the phyllite stores up this energy for the following winter.
By employing geothermal energy for heating and “eco-energy” to drive the heat pump, the new Lange manufacture will be a zero-carbon installation. In comparison with conventional heating systems based on fossil fuels, the use of these technologies will reduce energy costs by more than 50%.
Very interesting concept.
