Ground Source Heat Pump



Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) are used to extract heat from the ground. As the pump is situated underground, it circulates a combination of water and antifreeze fluid around the loop of pipe which is known as the ground loop. 

Heat from the ground is then absorbed into the fluid which passes through the heat exchanger then into the heat pump.

As the underground holds relatively the same temperature it means that the ground loop can still absorb the heat right through the winter months. 

The length of ground loop needed depends on the size of the home and the area of ground around it. The longer the length of ground loop, the more likely to absorb more heat as it is covering a greater surface area.

GSHPs can:

  • Provide the home with heat and consistent hot water.

  • Save money on fuel deliveries, as they won't be needed.

  • Lower your fuel costs especially if you switch it from a conventional electric heating system. 

  • Lower the carbon emissions within the home depending on the fuel type being replaced.

  • Bring home an income with the Government's Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. (Click and follow the link)

  • Save money on maintenance costs, as very little is needed.

A typical GSHP would cost from .... to install. This all depends on the size of ground loop needed to be installed, the area in which to install it and the home the heat pump is to be heating. 

But don't let this put you off as it can pay for itself over .... years and payments are given from the Government for having a renewable energy source.
