Ground Source Heat Pumps
Renewable heat, directly from the ground.
A ground source heat pump (GSHP) extracts heat directly from the ground. The sun heats the earth every day, meaning the rock or soil beneath the surface can offer a natural source of consistent low-grade heat.
Property owners can install a vertical or horizontal ground source system. The former uses deep drilled boreholes, and the latter uses shallower trenches. The system circulates a solution through pipes or loops, which absorbs the underground heat and filters it through a heat exchanger into the pump.
A ground source heat pump is a super-efficient heating system, delivering year-round heat to residential and commercial properties.
Meet building regulations
Comply with UK government guidelines and local authority building regulations, reduce carbon emissions, and improve your SAP calculations. Go green, and get efficient.
Add real value to your home, reduce monthly utility bills, and claim Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments. A GSHP makes sense for your pocket and the environment.
Enjoy the simplicity
GSHPs are low maintenance, and straightforward to install if you have the space. No planning permission is required for standard new-builds or renovations in the UK.
“Loving the GSHP you installed for us and it’s proving to be very economical. Very pleased. We are now ready to apply for our RHI payments and hope you can point us in the right direction.”
