How ground source works?

Ground source heat pumps can provide both hot water and heating. There are two forms of energy collection; vertical boreholes and horizontal loops in trenches. Both are highly efficient.

4 ways to collect energy

When the sun shines, it heats the ground and the air. This creates natural sources of heat energy, all around us, that are just waiting to be captured. That’s what a heat pump does.

Ground Source Heat pumps collect solar energy that has been stored in the ground and convert it into an environmentally sustainable indoor climate for your home. No coal. No gas. No oil.

Save Money
  • Ground source heat pumps save money

  • Heat pumps are much cheaper to run than direct electric heating systems

  • Ground Source is cheaper to run than oil boilers and can be cheaper than gas boilers

Heating & Cooling
  • Heat pumps can also provide cooling in summer, as well as heating in winter

  • Ground source heat pumps are the only reneweable energy technology that can benefit from the thermal energy storage properties of the ground to recycle heat from summer to winter

Energy Security & Safety
  • Because heat pumps can be fully automated they demand much less work than biomass boilers

  • Heat pumps save space.

  • There are no fuel storage requirements

  • No need to manage fuel deliveries

  • No risk of fuel being stolen
