Summary

The goal of this study was to validate the effects of parameters such as the buried depth of an earth-coupled heat exchanger, the mass flow rate of the water-antifreeze solution and sewer water on the performance of a horizontal ground-source heat pump (GSHP) system used for space heating experimentally. The experimental results were obtained from November to April during the heating season of 2002-2003. The average performance coefficients of the system for a horizontal ground heat exchanger in the different trenches, at 1 and 2 m depths, were found to be 2.66 and 2.81, respectively. Results obtained from experimental measurement demonstrated that horizontal GSHP systems can be used for climatic conditions in Elazig, Turkey.
