  • Ground loop – A loop of plastic pipe normally laid flat in trenches about 2m deep or in locations with insufficient space, it is possible to install a vertical loop down into the ground to a depth of up to 100-200m.
  • Heat pump – Extracts energy from the ground or water source and converts it to heat suitable for distributing through the heating system.
  • Heat distribution system – This can be underfloor heating or radiators and is used to extract the heat before releasing it into a building.

What is a Ground Source Heat Pump?

Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) extract the naturally occurring heat from the ground outside and transfer it for use inside a building. In the UK, the temperature of the ground a couple of metres down stays at around 11 degrees C. To extract this stable heat source, pipes are buried in the ground and filled with liquid. This liquid absorbs the warmth from the earth and carries it to a heat exchange to be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home.

An ground source heat pump system is compatible with both radiators and underfloor heating systems. Once fitted the GHSP will need very little maintenance.

Is a Ground Source Heat Pump Suitable For My Home?

If you’re thinking about installing a ground source heat system in your property, contact us so we can discuss the benefits and drawbacks. It’s only suitable for some buildings, but it’s worth considering as a greener energy source.

Ground Source Heat Pumps are an excellent alternative system to install if your property isn’t on a mains gas supply. You must, however, have a piece of land large enough to have the pipes installed into the ground. The land doesn’t have to be huge, but there are minimum sizes. To understand what is possible in your home or business, give us a call.

Grants For Ground Source Heat Pumps

You can get thousands of pounds towards a new heating system with ground source heat pump grants. The UK government is committed to reaching net zero emissions, and that’s why it is offering incentives to reduce the cost of greener heating.
