The article shows a study case of a geothermal system near Bucharest. In the paper it is shown that for a good efficiency of a geothermal system for heating and air conditioning, it is important to follow a few steps. One step is a very accurate calculation of the heat and cold load. In the next step it is important to use a specific equipment to obtain the Thermal Response Test (TRT) of geological formations crossed by the borehole. TRT is helpful in providing information related to the evolution of the soil temperature while introducing a thermal load. All information that can be obtained or calculated from the TRT will provide how the climate system will function in time and its efficiency. Furthermore, the effective thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of the well will be determined, extremely important parameters in designing the correct length of the geoheat exchanger. The article used specific software to simulate the evolution of parameters in time, for soil and heat pump. Earth Energy Design offer information for the number of needed boreholes, the depth and the yearly evolution of the soil’s temperature in time for the system etc. Following all these main steps, finally a very efficient system can be designed, that can ensure the heating and produce hot water for the consumption of a house, office building or of other destination buildings.
