In this episode of "DIY geothermal heat pump", you'll see how I did thermal imaging scan of my home to determine places where significant heat loss happens.
In this episode I fix mistakes that were made in my initial geothermal heat pump design. I was wrong an now it's apparent that the evaporator should be bigger than the condenser.
In this episode we fill a geothermal loop with alcohol. What? Yep, you've read it right. Turns out alcohol can be used not to drink yourself to death but as a handy pipe filler.
In this episode, you'll see how I assembled the heat pump. I strongly recommend using the help of a professional here because it's such a delicate process. In my case, Roman helped me remotely.
In this episode you'll see how heat pumps work, we'll look at most basic, simplified heat pump design to understand core principles of it's operation.
G'day fellas! In this episode you'll see how we built a ground loop for my geothermal, or ground source heat pump.
In this episode I do a quick introduction to the 3rd season of DIY Heat Pump project. This third season will be about a geothermal, or ground source heat pump.
In this post, we're looking at the possible electricity prices hike in Ukraine 2021. The heat pump is no longer profitable? Possible options for ensuring the energy independence of an ordinary household. Seasonal energy storage.
An evaporator defrosting system with compressor heat has been added to the air-to-water heat pump. We look at defrosting system setup, detailed statistics review.
Howdy! In this episode I review the state of thermal siphons one year after the start of geothermal DIY Heat Pump project.
I made a heat pump from the outdoor unit of an industrial air conditioner with my own hands. In this video, I share my observations and conclusions.
Series of short clips where I launch the system. My conclusions and observations.
First launch of the chiller.
Geothermal probes. Thermal siphon.
Heat exchanger. Crimping.
Working version of the heat exchanger between the geo-contour and freon.
Learn from mistakes. I suggest learning from mine. An unsuccessful version of the heat exchanger between the geo-contour and freon.
I'm starting a new series. It's called DIY Geothermal Heat Pump. The project used several original ideas. Drilling, in this case, probably, isn't the correct term. More correctly would be to say - pierce with the hammer drill.
