Ground Source
Heat Pumps

What is a Ground source heat pump?

Ground source heat pumps use pipes that are buried underground to extract heat. The heat is then used for your water and heating systems in your home.

How do they work?

Water and antifreeze are sent round a ground loop underground. The heat in the ground is absorbed into the fluid and and then passed to a heat exchanger which in turn passes the heat to the pump. This method works well as the area underground stays at a constant temperature providing heat even when the ground looks frozen.

The Benefits?

Ground source heat pumps could reduce your fuel bills while at the same time reducing the carbon emissions from your home. Very little maintenance is needed once it has been installed. Ground source heat pumps are much more efficient than other heat pump types. Heat your home and hot water without having to worry about how much fuel is left.

Some things that you may like to consider are:

  • Where would it be installed?

    The pipe would need to be placed under ground which does mean that you need an area like a garden to have it put in.

  • What would it replace?

    The system could pay for itself based on what type of fuel you are replacing such as coal.

  • How to get the most out of it?

    The best effect you will get out of it is if your home is well insulated and draught-proofed.
