Achieve Renewable Energy, LLC has just completed installation of a Ground Source Heat Pump system to heat and cool a 130,000 square foot building in Chelmsford, MA. The specifics of the project are confidential but we can share some information. The entire building is heated and cooled with the GSHP system. There is no need for any backup or auxiliary heating source. Prior to this, the largest building we had completed was 90,000 square feet. That project was for the same client which shows that the first project was a success.
The 130,000 square foot building uses GSHPs with variable speed Fans and compressors. Pumps for circulation through the ground source are also variable speed for greater efficiency. Our client is getting approximately $300,000 in financial incentives for this project. In Massachusetts, commercial GSHP projects are very cost-effective. If you have an up-coming construction or renovation project, let us help you evaluate options for a GSHP system.
