If you are looking to improve energy efficiency, or comfort of your commercial facility ground source heat pumps or geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) are well worth consideration. GHP systems are an extremely efficient technology for heating and cooling offices, and retail spaces. These systems can reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling by up to 44% when compared to conventional air-source heat pumps. This is achieved by using an alternative thermal source/sink in the heat pump cycle such as a pond, aquifer or the ground rather than the ambient air. These alternative thermal reservoirs have high thermal capacities that don’t vary with the seasons. These systems can save you money while reducing maintenance, and increasing building comfort.
Unbiased Information for a Sound Energy Investment
Geothermal systems are not a “one size fits all” solution and these advanced systems are best considered in the context of a comprehensive energy audit where energy prices, heating and cooling loads and even geological information is used to determine how GHPs could fit into your facility. Aside from GHP evaluation an energy audit gives you a complete picture of your facility’s energy consumption and can identify best practices that will reduce your bills with no investment required, as well as identify the projects that will make your investment dollar go the farthest, of which GHPs may be one.

Proud of the Clients We Serve
ANTARES is proud to routinely provide our services to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) where we evaluate the HVAC systems at hospital campuses all over the country and identify the best GHP opportunities for them. These studies help the VA in meeting federal energy efficiency goals while improving the facilities for our Veterans.
In addition to serving the VA, ANTARES is a FlexTech auditor for NYSERDA, and a technical reviewer for both NYSERDA’s and National Grid’s energy incentive programs, ANTARES has experience in performing both energy audits and reviewing the results of third party energy savings calculations to verify the energy cost savings under real life operating conditions.
