RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL SERVICES
ASSESSMENT AND CONSULTING
Whether you are building new, remodeling, or want to make your existing home or building more energy efficient, we will work with you to identify issues and provide recommendations for improvement.
Our services begin with a customer consultation, followed by a site analysis. Once installation begins, customers continue to stay involved with the project by recieving analysis reports, installation progress, and completed system results via our custom "Energy Tracking System".
O2GEO will find the appropriate ground source system for your unique location by carefully taking into account load calculations of the structure and information regarding individual lifestyle and daily activities. There are several options and applications that must be considered. Ultimately, components of a ground source system are precisely fitted to ensure maximum performance and results.
Typical goals consist of greatly reduced use of fossil-fueled
energy and maximum return for financial investments.
Engineered calculations are used in ensuring that system designs will
deliver comfort levels for many years. This precise forecast surpasses
those of traditional mechanical systems. Virtually all energy used to
provide you with indoor air comfort will be delivered by energy itself,
not derived from fossil fuels.
Installing Energy Field Systems will depend on site conditions and a number of other issues. Once the analysis are completed and appropriate system capacity is identified, the following progression of steps commence to install a ground source heat pump system.
Choosing the appropriate loop configuration.
In Missouri earth loops for energy exchange can be installed in vertical bores or horizontal configurations to provide the most effective, lowest cost method, depending upon space availability. For field loop designs, there are a number of options that can be adapted to suit specific field conditions.
Drilling for space efficiency.
Field loop configurations can vary, but spacing is a critical, engineered consideration for optimum performance of the ground source heat pump system. Ground conditions (ie: rock structures, etc.) impact thermal conductivity and spacing of loops to insure conductivity of heat/energy without exposes the Earth to saturated thermal levels is an important part of O2Geothermal's recommendations.
Connecting the earth loops to the manifold.
All of the loops are joined either to the supply or return manifold where the earth loops converge, channeling refrigerant through the lines are connected by line sets to the compressor.
The role of the compressor. The refrigerant lines are connected to the compressor, which increases the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant. Heat energy released by the pressurized refrigerant may be channeled either to the building if heat is needed or to the earth if cooling is needed. The process is controlled by a thermostat and a reversing-valve.
Connecting an air handler. The refrigerant line may then be run from the compressor to an air handler. The air handler is used to transfer heat from the refrigerant to the air and circulate the heated air in the building, or to remove it from the building in summer by exchanging it from the circulating air into the refrigerant line for transport to the earth.
Connecting a radiant hydronic system. In the alternative, the refrigerant line may be run from the compressor to a refrigerant-to-water heat exchanger that is used to transfer heat into a hot water circulating system to heat the building.
