Abstract

The data reported in this article presents actual installation costs and performance data for a selection of residential Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems in Melbourne, Australia. The installation cost data includes five main cost components: ground loop installation, head pipe installation, heat pump, mechanical room installation, and fittings. The performance data presented here includes timestamp, air temperature and thermal loading. A more comprehensive analysis of this data may be obtained from the article entitled "Economic analysis of vertical ground source heat pump systems in Melbourne" (Q. Lu, G.A. Narsilio, G.R. Aditya, I.W. Johnston, 2017) [1].
