Dodd Group supplies ground source heat pumps in the West Midlands. 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; allowing ground source heat pumps to be used in the middle of winter as well as throughout the year. Ground source heat pumps heat your home via radiators or under-floor heating systems. Ground source heat pumps are ideally suited to providing hot water.
The underground pipework in ground source heat pumps, known as ‘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.
There are many benefits of installing a ground source heat pump system with Dodd Group, including: lower carbon emissions, lower fuel bills, and decreasing electricity use. Heating homes with a ground source heat pump is much more energy-efficient than using electric radiators; an average ground source heat pump could save around 1.8 tonnes of carbon emissions every year when replacing an oil boiler. As well as being energy efficient, ground source heat pumps require significantly less space, as there are no fuel storage requirements.
Contrasting to oil burners, ground source heat pumps run on electricity, so there’s no need to pay for gas, oil or solid fuels. Heat pumps depend on good insulation and can be useful in locations not connected to a gas supply. Ground source heat pumps also require considerably less maintenance than combustion based heating systems.
Dodd Group’s Surveyor will advise you on the most efficient system for your property and we will work with you to design and install the most appropriate system and associated controls.
