Ground Source Heat Pumps
Heat your property using energy from the ground, all year round.
Ground Source Heat Pump Technology
Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) extract energy from the ground and convert it into heat, enabling you to heat your home and water without the use of any fossil fuels, all year round.
Looped pipes are laid at least a metre underground through which glycol antifreeze is pumped. The glycol heats up as a result of passing through the ground, which remains at a temperature of 10°C in the UK at the depth of one metre throughout the year. Using compression, the heat pump (which is sited indoors) increases the heat energy from the glycol, which is then used to heat your property in a clean and renewable way.
GSHPs are the most efficient type of heat pump. Whilst they require a little electricity to operate, the conversion of this energy into heat energy can yield 5 times as much, making them a 400-500% efficient heating system.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
By installing a Ground Source Heat Pump, you will likely qualify for the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive. The Government incentivises renewable heating systems to encourage people to choose a green heating option over a polluting, fossil fuel system. Our free quotations will provide you with a detailed breakdown of what you might expect to receive from the RHI, which could be up to £12,710 over 7 years. Find out more about the RHI.
