Ground Source: Become Eco-Friendly!

Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are an excellent renewable energy solution that can help you save on your energy bills. They also reduce your carbon footprint. We supply and install ground source heat pumps mostly by Clausius and Kensa, but we are able to get other makes upon request.

They work by extracting heat from the ground outside your home, compressing it into a higher temperature, and transferring it inside to heat your home. They are extremely efficient and can produce up to four times more energy than they consume. This makes them one of the most eco-friendly heating solutions available today. Unlike air source heat pumps, ground source heat pump efficiencies are not affected by outside temperature changes and can provide reliable heating all year round.

 

The Advantages Of Change

One of the main advantages of ground source heat pumps over other heating solutions is their high efficiency. They are more efficient than other heat pump types and can help you save on your energy bills. When coupled with solar panels and battery storage they are even more efficient! Additionally, they are better suited for heating larger properties, making them an excellent choice for homeowners with larger homes.

GSHPs are also eligible for a higher grants compared to air source heat pumps. The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) offers a grant of £7,500 for the installation of a ground source heat pump. This means that installing them can be an excellent investment for your home and helps lower your energy bills. Terms Apply.

Another benefit is that they are quiet and require very little maintenance. Unlike conventional boilers, which require annual servicing, GHSPs only require occasional check-ups to ensure they are running efficiently. This means that you can enjoy reliable heating without any hassle or fuss.

GSHPs are also eco-friendly and produce zero emissions on site, making them a great choice for homeowners who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. They can be used to heat your home, your hot water, or both.

But are they for you?

While ground source heat pumps are an excellent choice for many homeowners. However they may not be suitable for all properties. They require a significant amount of land to install the ground loops and may not be suitable for homes with limited outdoor space. Boreholes however can be used to mitigate this. Some GSHPs can be reversed in the summer to provide cooling in the house. In this scenario the heat pump takes heat from your house during hot weather and puts it into the ground outside It replenishes the stored heat in the ground, making the heat pump even more efficient. It should be noted that heat pumps that can cool are not eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme grant.

In summary, ground source heat pumps are an eco-friendly. They're also cost-effective, and an efficient renewable energy solution that can help you save on your energy bills.
