Winter Lyceum: “Greening From the Ground Up: Integration of Ground Source Heat Pumps into Historic Buildings” (via Zoom)
March 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Engineer Mark Nussbaum, who specializes in historic properties and the integration of energy efficient technologies, will review the basic concepts of ground source heat pump systems, how they work to provide climate control for buildings, and what specific features often make them an excellent choice in historic buildings. We will look at some of the challenges of integrating modern systems into historic buildings, work-around strategies for these challenges, and the need to sometimes compromise system performance to allow the preservation of historic building fabric. We will review case studies of historically significant projects including Unity Temple, the Glessner House, and Pleasant Home, among others.
