Features

Whilst developing our tool, we have conducted a benchmark analysis with our competitors and determined all the features that should be included in GHEtool. This combined with our open-source strategy allows us to be the most performant and richful software for borefield in the market.

GHEtool Pro offers all the features you need and has an elaborate documentation where all the specific functionalities of the tool are explained. Go and check out our user manual!

One integrated network

A network of tools

The open-source community behaves like a web, where all different tools and pieces of code are interconnected into one vast network of intercompatible code. GHEtool is no different. For all its ground temperature responses of the borefield, it uses pygfunction. For everything related to the graphical user interface, scenarioGUI is used. Since GHEtool is built using these code bases, it can easily be extended to include other features of these two previous packages.

GHEtool is a software solution for engineers, construction companies and academia for borefield calculations. Discover our plans here.

API via Python's PIP install

Being part of that open-source community, we also have an API available so our software itself is easily accessible via Python’s Pip install and easy to integrate within existing systems. This API contains all community features. This is a very conscious choice since an API can facilitate for academia the development  of new methods and therefore expand the knowledge within the field.
