Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps are efficient, low carbon alternatives for heating. By extracting solar energy from the ground to produce heating and hot water solutions for your home.
They work by transferring heat stored in the ground into your building – unlike traditional fossil fuel systems (such as coal or gas) which create heat by burning fuel.
How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work:
Ground source heat pumps harvest solar energy that is stored in the ground, using it to heat your home and heat your water.
Loops of pipes are installed a meter under your home – where the temperature is a around 8-12 degrees.
These pipes absorb this heat and convert it into an environmentally friendly form of heating for your home.
