Thermal Caissons® serve a dual functionality as both structural components that support the building as well as energy system components that provide high-efficiency heating and cooling to buildings
Capture Thermal Units, which include U-loop heat exchangers embedded in caissons, are thermal storage media which help to store, absorb and release large amounts of latent heat stabilizing ground temperature, thus maintaining high efficiency for heating and cooling of buildings
Thermal Caissons® not only considerably reduce the capital costs of conventional GSHP systems, but also mitigate their efficiency degradation over time.
Thermal Caissons® require no additional drilling, making them more cost-effective than conventional geothermal systems
Thermal Caissons® offer higher thermal heat capacity with minimal ground temperature variation, and thus they are ideal for buildings with unbalanced heating and cooling loads
Capture Thermal Units stabilize underground temperature, increasing system efficiency
Dual-purpose caissons provide structural support and geothermal heat exchange
