Abstract

There is a rising interest in heating and cooling systems based on renewable energy sources. Air heating or cooling with earth-to-air heat exchangers (EAHE) is one approach for reducing ventilation heat losses and improving thermal comfort in buildings. A literature research was performed in order to analyze the design, characteristics of earth-to-air heat exchangers and whether they could be coupled with HVAC system coupling. A range of projects was compared in order to collect and summarize design suggestions.
