Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) use pipes which are buried in the garden/field to extract heat from the ground. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home.
The ground temperature will remain relatively stable throughout the year varying between 8°c to 12°c in most locations. Our ground source heat-pumps can efficiently raise this temperature up to 55°c for heating and hot water requirements. The GSHP we use has the advantage that it has a variable output. This means that the heat pump is able to modulate to meet the exact needs of the property. This means it will improve efficiency dramatically, removes the need for a buffer tank and increases the lifespan of the compressor when compared to that of a standard fixed output ground source heat pump.
They also come with a 7-year warranty and online diagnostics to allow remote support and adjustment.
Ground source heat-pumps can provide one of the lowest heating system running costs of any solution. We can design ground loop system to suit most types of ground,
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C
The benefits of air source heat pumps
- Lower fuel bills.
- Potential income through the UK government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
- Lower home carbon emissions
- No fuel deliveries needed
- Can heat your home as well as your water
- Minimal maintenance required
- Can be easier to install than a ground source heat pump.
