Earlier field measurements in Low Energy Buildings have shown that excess temperatures can easily occur during summertime in well-insulated houses, also in northern part of Europe. If a ground source heat pump is used for heating and there is a bidirectional ventilation system, the borehole can be used for free cooling in summertime and the chilled air can be distributed by the ventilation system. In this study, a simulation of a single family nZEB located in the Swedish city Gothenburg was conducted.

The effects of groundwater direction on performance of geothermal heat pump systems were analyzed using a 3-D finite difference method with rectangular meshes. Each borehole was approximated by a square column with the actual circular borehole section circumscribing the approximated square section. The fluid temperatures inside each borehole were calculated by discretizing borehole vertically into different segments.
