A ground source heat pump extracts natural heat from underground to warm your home. It's economical and sustainable.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
We can install a complete ground source heat system for your property. In addition, we will take care of the drilling and ground works required. This includes both horizontal and vertical systems. We only install certificated PE100+ crack resistant loops in our boreholes.
How do they work?
The ground beneath our feet is like a giant heat storage battery, maintaining a constant temperature throughout the year. Because of this, heat can be extracted to warm your home and water supply.
A solution is circulated through pipes in the ground which extracts heat. Further, the solution is upgraded by the ground source heat pump to a usable temperature. The exchange of heat can be achieved by the installation of horizontal or vertical pipes.
The benefits of a ground source heat pump:
Up to 3kW of free heat can be obtained for every 1kW used.
Horizontal or vertical collectors?
Choosing between the two types of installation will come down to the available space, the area which requires heating and your budget allowance.
Reduce your bills and carbon footprint
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government financial support scheme for renewable heat. Its purpose is to compensate for the cost of installing a ground source heat pump. It can provide a long term rate of return and fast payback.
Furthermore, end users will benefit from the significant fuel cost savings. It’s a safe, reliable and sustainable technology. Typically, a system starts from £6000 for a small property and will attract government support through the RHI Scheme.
