Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps (otherwise known as ground-to-water heat pumps) work by transferring heat from the ground to your radiators and heating. They are an environmentally friendly investment compared to more traditional heating methods such as gas or oil boiler.

The initial investment in a Ground Source Heat Pump can be costly, but the longer term savings can be great. These are often subject to eligible Government Funding Incentive schemes such as Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme.

How do Ground Source Heat Pumps work?

Quite simply, these heat pumps work by pulling heat from under the ground into your home to heat the radiators. Pumps will pull heat from pipes buried outside your home.

Water and antifreeze is added into the pipes and this is warned underground, the liquid will then go through a heat exchanger which is then boiled into gas.

Gas will then move into a compressor, where is then increases in temperature. Gas moves through a condenser, and is then distributed to your home’s central heating system.
