Ground source heat pumps use pipes buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground.
Beneath the surface, the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature, so a ground source heat pump can be used throughout the year – even in the middle of winter.
They heat your home via radiators or under-floor heating systems to which they are ideally suited and provide hot water.
The underground pipework – called a ground loop – is buried in the garden. Heat from the ground is absorbed into a thermal transfer fluid and is pumped through a heat exchanger in the heat pump. Low temperature heat passes through the heat pump compressor and is converted into a higher temperature heat capable of providing your heating and hot water needs.
