RSES Introduces Geothermal Systems Guide


ROLLING MEADOWS, PA – Understanding Geothermal Systems is the first title in the RSES Sustainability Series. It was introduced at the RSES (Refrigeration Service Engineers Society) Conference and HVACR Technology Expo, in late 2012. 

Authored by Jeff Persons, CM, this resource manual serves as a “best practices” guide for the design, installation and maintenance of geothermal systems. The book draws on the author’s more than 30 years of hands-on geothermal field experience and covers geothermal systems and controls from their widespread introduction to the U.S. market in the early 1970s to the multistage ultra-high-efficiency systems of today.

Study topics include both open-loop and closed-loop applications, subsurface geology, loop design, water chemistry, antifreeze solutions, system installation and controls. Emphasis is placed on identifying common installation and service mistakes, and on learning from those mistakes.

The guide gives business owners, sales staff, installers and technicians a step up on the competition and imparts the knowledge necessary to maintain consumer confidence and appreciation. Geothermal systems represent one of the best means available for meeting the growing interest in renewable energy technology.

Additional titles in radiant heating and electronically commutated motors will also be released in the RSES Sustainability Series.
