The facility is air conditioned by 14 geothermal heat pump systems ranging from 30 to 70 tons each for a total of approximately 650 tons. The heat pumps are equipped with multiple compressors, external inline pumps, and fans with variable frequency drives that supply conditioned air to 111 variable volume zone dampers. A computerized control system monitors and controls the variable volume zone dampers to maintain space temperature and switches the heat pumps from cooling to heating mode when required. During the cooling season the heat is rejected to an earth loop through 280 vertical wells that are 20 feet apart.
