Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps draw heat from the ground and then use that to generate more heat to warm your building. Unlike air source heat pumps, ground source or geothermal heat pumps are not as reliant upon the ambient temperature to maintain a high efficiency. From 1 metre below the surface, ground temperature is typically between 7⁰C and 12⁰C throughout the year.

To extract the heat from the ground a number of methods can be used, pipe coils laid in the ground, bore holes drilled vertically into the ground or pipe coils can even be laid on the bed of a lake.

Classed as a low carbon technology due to the fact that they can produce over 4 times the amount of heat energy than it takes to power the unit.
