Baxi Geoflo ground source heat pump

When heating engineer Patrick Gilmartin bought a house to, he took the opportunity to install a ground source heat pump and solar panels.

Patrick explains how he installed the Baxi Geoflo ground source heat pump. “the slinkies are buried two metres deep, the length of the back garden, and the heat pump and manifold for the underfloor heating is situated in an outhouse.
“We have put in underfloor heating right through the ground and first floors and so the house is always warm and cosy.
“We used three inch insulation for the underfloor heating, and special insulation in the loft to keep in the heat”
“We do have an oil boiler to use as back¬up, but haven’t needed it yet. Hot water is provided by three solar panels on the south facing roof and a 300 litre Heatrae Sadia Megaflo cylinder.
“The best thing is that our electricity bill for six months was £400 – not bad for a house this size”, he adds.
