Geothermal Heat Pumps at Kroon Hall & Greenberg Conference Center

Geothermal heat pumps at both Yale’s Greenburg Conference Center and Kroon Hall contribute to the low energy intensity of each building.  Considered a renewable energy technology, geothermal heat pumps transfers heat from the earth by pushing water that flows through deep geothermal wells. In the winter, the warmer temperature of the earth is transferred into the building while in the summer the heat from inside the building is discharged into the ground resulting in a highly efficient heating and cooling system.
