• Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are a highly efficient way of tapping into and harnessing solar energy stored in the ground, rock or water. These elements act like a battery and are charged with solar energy which a GSHP can then collect as soon as there is a heating demand in the building. The ground remains at a constant temperature below the frost line throughout the year and it is this consistent temperature that enables the heat pump to upgrade the heat energy so efficiently through the refrigeration cycle.

What’s the Best Home Heating System for You?

A building’s heat demand and the characteristics of the land around it will determine the most appropriate means of collecting the heat energy. The most common methods for collecting heat are via a ‘closed’ pipe loop whereas an ‘Open’ loop system uses water from an underground or surface body of water, filtered and pumped through a heat exchanger

The Benefits of a Heat Pump

In addition to the advantages of heat pumps in general, installing a ground sourced renewable heating solution provides the following benefits:

  • Significant energy savings due to high efficiency
  • Long life as a ground source unit can be located indoors
  • Quiet operation
  • Consistent energy available – primary heating source
  • Aesthetically, nothing visible external to the property
Savings, Incentives and Earnings

A ground source heat pump system is designed to meet all of your heating and hot water needs. When used to heat a property, the running costs will be reduced to the amount of electricity required to run the system, which is designed to produce at least 2.5 units of heat for 1 unit of input electricity. This can mean considerable savings to your electricity bill if it is replacing all-electric heating within a property.
