Lake Loop Installation On-going for Geothermal Heat Pump System

Installation is on-going for the lake loop portion of a closed-loop lake source heat pump system for the new Resource Center at Southern Union State Community College.   The system consists of approximately 30,000 feet of pipe in bundles of 500 ft each will be installed in the lake as the heat source/sink for the geothermal heating and cooling system.  Water-source heat pumps are designed throughout the building and are connected to the lake system with central pumps. Dedicated outside air units are provided for the entire building, with CO2 control in densely occupied spaces.
