Currently, a fundamental parameter for the correct sizing of very low enthalpy geothermal energy (VLEGE) facilities especially in those with horizontal burial, is to know the right value of the thermal diffusivity (α) of the ground (ratio between the conduction capacity and the thermal capacity, expressed in m2/s) at the depth at which the geothermal heat exchanger is to be buried. Numerous methods are used for its calculation, both theoretical and approximate, as well as more accurate, through costly tests carried out in the ground where the exchanger is to be buried. Rarely does the theoretical calculation come close to reality, causing the designed facility to never work properly. This is especially serious if the facility is located, as is usual, under the building or dwelling, as it does not allow for subsequent improvement actions. This work demonstrates in a practical way, with a real example, how the use of a very low-cost in situ ground temperature measurement system, such as the one designed and presented in the article, provides a useful and accurate tool for the right sizing of this type of facilities. The developed method is compared with the theoretical one, and the error is quantified.
