Ground source heat pump cooling
GeoCube can operate as a reversible heat pump system that offers both passive and active cooling, delivering chilled water to cool sheds down to 18°C (depending on the HVAC installation).
The importance of ground source cooling
An efficient and accurate cooling system is vital in poultry shed design to maintain bird growth and welfare. As birds grow they give off increasing amounts of heat, increasing the temperature and humidity in the shed.
There are two key benefits of managing the shed’s air temperature using our ground source heat pump cooling system:
GeoCube’s passive and active cooling capabilities carefully control the shed’s temperature and humidity, preventing heat stress, maintaining the birds’ feed conversion ratio and ensuring optimium growth and welfare.
Reduced need for tunnel ventilation
In addition ground source cooling can reduce the need to use noisy ventilation systems for cooling. Without the need for disruptive tunnel ventilation in summer, bird welfare is improved and ultimately productivity will increase.
