A heat management system for a building having at least one cooling device is provided. The heat management system includes a refrigeration system in heat exchange contact with a cooling system for providing cooling energy to the cooling system and to the cooling device. The cooling system includes at least two independent flow paths in heat exchange contact with the cooling device for cooling the cooling device. In addition, the heat management system includes a defrost system in heat exchange contact with the cooling device through the independent flow paths wherein the defrost system can be operated to independently defrost each flow path of the cooling system. The system is efficient to operate in conjunction with a geothermal system and provides effective building atmosphere de-humidification.
