Ground source heat pump
A ground source heat pump circulates heat from the ground to your home via a fluid travelling around a loop of pipe (a ground loop) that is buried in the ground. As the fluid travels around the pipe it absorbs heat from the ground and transfers it into your home.
The ground loop is sized according to the size and heating needs of your home. The longer the loop the more heat is generated.
A trench of about 2 metres deep is dug and the loop laid flat or coiled at the bottom and covered with earth. Where there is insufficient ground area available for a horizontal ground loop there is also an option to install vertical loops with boreholes.
• . Ground source heat pumps comfortably generate temperatures between 45 and 55 degrees and heat a whole house.
• . The average ground source heat pump saves around 540kg of carbon dioxide a year when replacing an oil boiler.
• . Ground source heat pumps have one of the lowest and most consistent running costs. As they run on electricity you no longer need to pay for gas, oil or solid fuels to heat your home.
Ground source heat pumps are also particularly suitable for new build, highly insulated renovated houses and houses with underfloor heating.
