Ground Source Heat Pumps

Just a few feet under your soil the ground temperature remains the same throughout the year. Ground Source Heat Pumps extract this heat from your soil and condense it, creating heat of up to 65 degrees which can be used for central heating and hot water in your home.

1How do Ground Source Heat Pumps work?

Ground Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the soil, even when the ground is frozen, providing a free source of heat all year round.

  • Efficient even in winter

    Even in winter, just a few feet underneath the surface of your garden your soil stores heat at a constant temperature.

  • Pipes absorb heat

    To make use of this heat, pipes containing liquid are buried in the soil. The liquid is fed round the system and gradually warms up.

  • Connects to existing systems

    Once heated, the liquid flows back into your home. It is condensed to make it even warmer then fed into your central heating system.

  • A constant temperature

    Ground Source Heat Pumps can provide heat up to 65 degrees, however most systems heat up to around 45-50 degrees.

2Why install a Ground Source Heat Pump?

Ground Source Heat Pumps work all year round in all temperatures and offer a discreet and convenient way of heating your home.

  • Save Money

    These systems can reduce energy bills by up to 60%. Grants will contribute to installation costs and you can make money through the RHI.

  • No Fuel Shortages

    You won't have to rely on fuel deliveries or be subject to price rises depending on the fluctuation of gas or oil costs.

  • Extremely efficient

    With a co-efficiency rating of at least 4, you will get 4 units of energy for the cost of 1.

  • Environmentally friendly

    The average household saves around 4,950kg of carbon emissions per year when switching from fossil fuels.

3How much do Ground Source Heat Pumps cost?

Ground Source Heat Pumps are now more affordable than ever thanks to government schemes which pay you to be eco-conscious.

  • Renewable Heat Incentive

    Thanks to this scheme you will actually earn money for every unit of heat you generate using this technology.

  • Renewable Heat Premium Payment

    Install a Ground Source Heat Pump and you could be entitled to around £1250 as part of current legislation.

  • Installation cost

    Typical installations cost between £9,000 - £17,000 but last a long time and have very low maintenance costs.

  • Fuel

    Your soil stays warm all year round. Most households won't need a backup heating supply when using this technology.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

You may not realise, but your garden soil is a good source of heat energy throughout the year as it maintains a constant temperature of around 11-12ºC.

By using ground source heat pumps, you can extract some of this energy and transfer it to your home or business.

These systems are eco-friendly and extremely efficient, generating heat up to five times the electrical energy used to power the pump.

How Ground Source Heat Pumps work

An outdoor network of pipes that are filled with water and antifreeze are laid out and buried within the ground. At one end of this system is a pump which drives the solution around the pipes.

As this liquid is passed through the pipe, its temperature is raised by heat within the soil. Pressure is built up as the liquid is continually pumped through the piping, which causes the temperature to increase further, so that by the time it completes a circuit, the solution within the pipes has gained sufficient heat that it can be transferred to an internal heating system.

Benefits of Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps are designed to provide all the necessary heating and hot water requirements for your home/business.

The main advantage of this type of system is that it is ecologically sound and delivers a real cost-saving benefit.

It is ideal for people who are trying to lower their emissions and is perfect for homes and businesses in remote locations, that are not connected to mains gas pipelines and are dependent on fuel deliveries.

In addition to those benefits, these installations are relatively low maintenance.

Environmental Benefits

It is estimated that heating accounts for around 35% of the UK's annual C02 emissions. Switching to ground source heat pumps will help to reduce your emissions and lower costs; the average electrically-heated home could see savings of around £840 and 6 tonnes of C02 per year.

Homes heated using lpg, oil or Calor gas could see far greater savings as well as being more convenient.

Traditional methods of heating typically use non-renewable energy such as gas and oil, or take their power from non-renewable electricity supplies. In most cases, these are extremely inefficient as well as being heavy polluters.

In comparison, heat pumps are a much more efficient technology, having a COP (coefficient performance) rating of at least three; this means for every unit of electricity used to power the heat pump, the user benefits from three units of heat energy.

In actual fact, depending on the type of pump and installation you have, this figure is quite conservative as many organisations report a COP of between 5-6 and beyond for this technology.
