Ground source heat pumps
Ground source heat pump is an electrically powered system that uses natural energy stored in the earth to heat your home. It is a simple process, and the result is low-cost comfortable heating that uses sustainable energy and causes no direct emissions or other damage to the environment.
Most ground source heat pumps are suitable for a variety of different properties and are designed to be the sole source of heating and hot water in Your home.
For every single kilowatt of electricity used to power the ground source heat pumps, this system could generate four kilowatts or more in energy for your home, whilst helping to conserve the earth's dwindling supplies of non-renewable fossil fuels - coal, gas, and oil.
Is it suitable for your Home?
Many factors determine whether ground source heat pumps are suitable for a property, including insulation, heat distribution and the land area for the heat pump's collectors. Our trained engineers will survey your property and advise on the best solutions available.
