Ground Source Heat Pump
Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) take in energy from the ground outside and converts this into usable energy for hot water and heating. They are installed externally underground and feeds energy into an appliance which can be fitted either on an outside wall or inside the property. Although heat pumps require an electricity supply, they produce three times as much energy than conventional boilers, meaning they are much more energy efficient and cost effective.
Depending on the availability of land and access to the property, the pipes can be fitted either vertically or horizontally underground. Our engineers can advise you which installation is best suited to your property.
Why choose GSHP?
- There is no planning permission required to install energy efficient heat pumps
- With the main appliance installed indoors, this makes it more durable than air source heat pumps
- Minimal maintenance is required once GSHP is installed
- This may provide potential income through the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), see below for more information
How does a Ground Source Heat Pump work?
- A fluid is used to draw heat from underground
- The pump compresses the fluid and releases it at a higher temperature using electricity
- The heat is stored in a hot water cylinder and supplies heating and hot water throughout the day
- Connection to the electricity network allows any excess power to be fed back to the grid
Good for business. Good for the environment.
GSHP offers a much cleaner, greener way to produce heat energy. Unlike fossil fuels, it is kind to the environment. Installing such a system won’t only do wonders for your energy bills, it’ll do wonders for the environment too.
