Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps use solar energy naturally stored in soil, bedrock and groundwater as a heat source.

Ground source heat pumps do require electricity to operate, but are extremely efficient - producing up to five times as much heat energy for every unit of electricity used and are available for a variety of buildings and heating requirements.

Design and location considerations...

There are a number of types of ground source heat pump available to suit the heating requirements of any building, whether it's a new build or existing property.

They can also be installed almost anywhere, providing there is sufficient space to lay ground loops or drill a bore hole. Whichever collector is chosen, the ground must be unshaded.
