Ground Source Heat Pump
Air Source Heat Pumps concentrate heat from the air and use it to heat your hot water cylinder, radiators or underfloor heating.
We recommend Air Source Heat Pumps for people with well-insulated homes. They are also popular with self builders and developers building new build homes as they integrate well with underfloor heating. Designed well, an Air Source Heat Pump will provide all the hot water and heating you require 365 days a year.
The quality and reliability of Air Source Heat Pumps vary enormously. We only offer a range of Air Source Heat Pumps with proven track records and robust guarantees. Combined with our expert design and installation service this gives us full confidence in your heat pump’s performance.
How Do GSHPs Work?
A ground source heat pump system is connected to a series of pipes laid in the ground, these are known as ground collectors, ground loops or ground arrays. The pipes can be laid either horizontally in trenches or vertically in boreholes. A water and refrigerant mixture is circulated through the collectors absorbing heat energy from the ground, when it reaches the heat pump a compressor raises the temperature to a usable level and it’s then passed through a heat exchanger from which it's distributed to your hot water tank and radiators for hot water and heating.
Benefits of a GSHP
Great for the environment
GSHPs are clean and combustion free
HSHPs have excellent efficiencies of up to 400%, reducing your energy usage
Lowers your carbon footprint
Heat pumps use energy from the ground and need just a small amount of electricity to operate, this means your carbon footprint is greatly reduced
If the electricity comes from a renewable source such as solar or wind, the system will be carbon free
GSHPs can be used for cooling too
GSHPs are capable of also providing passive and active cooling which saves time, money and space compared to installing two separate systems
Long lifespan of around 25-30 years for the heat pump and 100+ years for the ground collectors
Is it possible that my Heat Pump will work with existing radiators?
Yes, Heat Pumps can be connected to your existing radiators, underfloor heating, water tank etc. Your systems
compatibility will be checked during our home survey.
Are GSHPs noisy?
GSHP systems all fall into the permitted development category. Fortunately, this means they
are not noisy.
Is a ground source heat pump difficult to maintain?
No, it’s simple, there is no need for safety checks and routine maintenance requirements are minimal.
A ground source heat pump can last over 20 years and the ground heat exchanger should have a life of over
Is my property suitable for a ground source heat pump?
This depends on the current fuel you use to heat your home and the amount of space you have available
for the installation. Properties with a larger amount of outside space are the best suited for a ground source
heat pump installation.
What other benefits come from installing a GSHP?
With a heat pump, you don’t need to worry about a flue, oil tank or gas connections. Plus you won’t need to
pay in advance to store fuel.
