hi i am designing a ground source heat pump for a building of 150m2 the heat needs to run 24/7 as its a pig house. can any of you suggest waht sixe of systme too use. also is the kw thermal output what its efficiency is? like 30% 1 kw in gives 3 kw output?

Thanks

LoL,

Wouldn't it be just as easy to just get one of us to do the assignment for you?

If you look around this site you will find that there are plenty of free heat load/loss programs and apps around, if you look a bit closer you will find that some of them can even be used to design systems and give you the efficiency of it...

:cool:

Hello Belle

You are a little out on your efficiency calculation.

1kW in - 3kW out = 300%
