Inside the Building


The focus of this chapter is conveying thermal energy to end uses in buildings, with a specific focus on aspects related to geothermal heat pumps. Traditional HVAC topics are not discussed in detail; readers are referred to definitive sources on HVAC topics (e.g., duct design), such as ASHRAE.
