A ground source heat pump, transfers heat from the ground outside your home to heat your radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps and showers. We often pair these with Mixergy Smart water tanks, maximising energy efficiency. With the average temperature of the ground in Yorkshire being 9-10 degrees there is a vast reserve of heat waiting to be harnessed into heat for your home.
Water and antifreeze flows around a loop of pipe that is buried in your garden. This loop could either be a long or coiled pipe buried in trenches, or a long inserted into a borehole. Our experts will assist you in choosing the correct method for your project.
Heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid within the pipes which then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. This raises the temperature of the fluid and then transfers that heat to water which heats your home.
Potential to reduce energy costs
Heat your home and water
Reduce your carbon footprint
Easy to maintain
You will need space on land outside your home in order for the pipes to be installed either via trenches or bore holes.
You will require a wet heating system of radiators, underfloor heating or both.
Do you have an existing water cylinder or space to install one? Unlike standard boilers ground source heat pumps need to store heated water for later use.
