Ground Source Heat Pumps utilise solar energy naturally stored in the soil, bedrock and groundwater as a heat source. Ground Source Heat Pumps do use electricity to operate, but efficiently convert this into five times as much heat-energy for every unit of electricity used.
Ground Source Heat Pumps can be installed almost anywhere, depending on the area of land around the property. There are three ways to install the 40mm geothermal pipe into the ground.
Air to water
Air to water heat pumps use outside air that is heated by the sun, meaning that there are no requirements for bore holes or coils in the ground, thus reducing installation time and costs.
Air to Water Heat Pumps are suitable for new builds or existing dwellings where digging up the garden is not an option.
