Muggenhumer & KNV: "EnergieGenie" for a horizontal slinky ground collector Cluster-News: January 2018

Muggenhumer Energiesysteme and its partners were awarded the "EnergieGenie" for its new geothermal heat concept with a so-called slinky ground collector. The product is a further development of the classic horizontal ground collector for heat pumps. The earth stores the warmth transmitted by the sun during the summer. In November, the highest annual average temperatures are reached at just a few meters depth. A plastic hose - filled with a mixture of water and organic-antifreeze - then provides these temperatures to the house in winter via a heat pump. The shape of the collector adapts to any property.
