What are Ground Source Heat Pumps?
Ground Source Heat Pumps use pipes buried in the ground to extract underground stored heat (solar energy) and compress it to heat your property and/or provide hot water. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home. This can deliver excellent fuel savings and significant carbon emissions reductions.
Despite seasonal weather, the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, so the heat pump can be used throughout the year. Installing a ground source heat pump could lower your fuel bills, especially if you replace conventional electric heating. You may also be eligible to generate income through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
