GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS

We're proud installers of
Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps are a renewable heating solution that extract heat from the ground outside your property to provide warmth and hot water inside.

 

As well as being a better choice for the environment, they are highly efficient for larger homes and can save you money on your energy bills in the long-term.

Benefits of
Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps are one of the most energy-efficient systems for heating and cooling. They have low maintenance and low running costs in comparison to fossil fuelled heating systems (such as Gas or Oil) and are considerably less noisy.

​From an ecological stand point, they have much less negative impact on the environment than fossil fuelled systems, making ground source heat pumps an efficient and environmentally-friendly investment.

FAQS

Are ground source heat pumps really cost effective? It's true they are a high investment to begin with, but it's largely proven they are cheaper to run overall. According to greenmatch, the average UK household make annual savings of up to £670 on heating bills when compared to conventional, gas-fired heating systems. Also, with ongoing government schemes and grants, it's likely the initial investment can be much lower. We keep on top of the latest grants, so our team will help advise the best options for you.

Do ground source heat pumps still work well in winter? The heat pump’s external pipework are installed in the soil which keeps the ground's temperature (below 1 metre) relatively consistent all year round. For this reason, standard UK cold weather is not likely to affect your heat pump’s efficiency.

How much space is required for a ground source heat pump? There are two directions we can go when fitting a ground source heat pump - horizontal or vertical. Horizontal GSHPs are laid flat, under the grounds surface so will require a large amount of space. The exact amount will depend on the size of the heat pump system needed for the size of your home. For the average home’s system, you can expect to need anywhere between 600m2 to 1200m2 of clear land. Vertical GSHPs require much less surface area, as the pipelines are fitted running downwards into the ground, but of course we will also need to assess the soil type and needs for your property.
