Generate your own sustainable energy from the ground around your property with a Ground Source Heat Pump.

How it works

Ground source heat pumps work by collecting latent heat from the ground through horizontal ground loops which are laid in trenches around 1.5m below the surface. This is normally done in a field or garden adjacent to a property.

Ground source heat pumps have a fairly stable seasonal performance factor as the temperature remains fairly consistent in the ground and does not vary greatly between summer and winter. This means that a household can benefit from generating their own sustainable energy from the ground near their property.

All you need to know about the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

From 9th April 2014 renewable energy heating installations will be supported by a Renewable Heat Incentive’ to help cover the purchase price.
Eligibility criteria for the payments will include:

  • a fair spread of technologies across all regions of Great Britain.
  • a well insulated home based on its Energy Performance Certificate.
  • a focus on properties off the gas grid, where heating fuels such as heating oil are more expensive and have a higher carbon content.
  • agreement from the householder to monitor the performance of installations.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government programme similar to the Feedin Tariff, designed to promote the installation of renewable heating systems, such as heat pumps and solar thermal panels.

AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMP INSTALLATION

Air source heat pumps work by taking heat from the air outside a building and using this to provide heating and hot water for the home

Seasonal Performance, Greater Efficiency

Latest technology means that air source heat pumps offer high seasonal performance and greater efficiency than ever before. They are capable of working even in the coldest winters, at temperatures down to -20°C. In context, if the outdoor temperature is 10°C, a heat pump will upgrade this heat into the indoor water temperature of 50°C or 60°C.

Air source heat pumps are available in different sizes to suit a property’s requirements and our expert team will be able to advise on this.

Aesthetically Pleasing

The air source heat pump unit is located externally to a property which is why the new generation of aesthetically pleasing designs are proving popular with homeowners.

Air source heat pumps are now available that offer very low noise levels, so they do not cause a disturbance to householders or their neighbours.
