Ground source heat pumps
Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) also known as Geo Thermal Heat Pumps use a series of pipes which are buried in the garden (a ground loop) to extract low grade heat from the ground or can be via a borehole if there is limited space.
This heat we extract then passes via a compressor and refrigeration cycle to give us greater heat which can then be used with under floor heating, fan convectors or a radiator system and also your hot water. A Ground Source Heat Pump is an ideal way to provide all year round heat as the core temperature of the ground does not vary dramatically throughout the year.
