What is the heat capacity of the soil?

Question:

<>

Answer: the amount of heat required to raise the floor temperature by 1 ° C

The heat capacity, also called heat capacity, of the soil depends on the composition and the moisture content of the latter. For example, water, rock and organic matter contained in the soil, have a strong capacity to capture and store heat, while that of the various minerals present in the soil is very weak. The thermal capacity of the soil is always examined during the study prior to the construction of a Canadian well. This is important since the air from the Canadian well will be at ground temperature. But if the thermal capacity of the soil is not optimal, it is always possible to play on other parameters during the construction of the Canadian well to limit the problem.
