The present work is an investigation of ground heat exchangers for the air-conditioning of the supply air to residential buildings. To this end, an analytical approximate solution for the temperature field of the ground in which a ground pipe hasbeen laid is derived. This analytical approximate solution is applicable to a free-lying ground heat exchanger consisting of a single ground pipe. Extensions of this solution enable calculations for ground heat exchangers which are laid around a house, or which consist of several ground pipes connected in parallel.
