Ground Source Heat Pumps
Heat your home and hot water using heat extracted from the ground by installing a Ground Source Heat Pump.
With a Ground Source Heat Pump Installation from us you can expect a professional and reliable service from your very first enquiry right through to, and beyond, your completed project. We have been installing heat pump since 2008 and are specialists in this field.
Ground source heat pumps can achieve the most efficient results possible when it comes to a homes heating and hot water production. There are a number of ways the heat can be extracted but typically this is from a horizontal ground collector (imagine underfloor heating in your garden) which is buried a metre down. A glycol solution is then circulated around this collector extracting the grounds free heat and taking it to the heat pumps heat exchanger. This heat is then extracted via a refrigerant and its temperature is increased to whatever level we need for the homes heating.
Vertical collectors or geothermal boreholes can also be used. The boreholes are drilled up to 120M deep and are inserted with pipe. The glycol solution is then circulated down and back up around the circuit and back to the heat pump as with the horizontal collector. The main difference is that the further below the soil surface we go the warmer the soil temperature is therefore borehole collectors are more efficient than ground collectors but they are more expensive. Ideal when space is limited and a horizontal ground collector is unachievable.
We are approved installers for both our Clausius and NIBE range of ground source heat pumps come meaning they come with a 7 year warranty as standard.
Our heat pumps produce up to 25KW on a single phase electrical supply. Much higher outputs are available for very large homes with 3 phase supplies or commercial/industrial purposes.
