Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps are an environmentally friendly investment that could help you save on your heating bills compared to more traditional heating methods such as gas or oil boilers, by harvesting natural energy from the earth and heating your home.

Initial investments can be high, but are often subject to eligible Government Funding Incentive schemes such as Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme.

How do Ground Source Heat Pumps work?

Pumps extract heat from the ground using pipes buried under the ground outside your home.

Water and antifreeze is distributed into the ground and the liquid warms up. This liquid moves through into a heat exchanger is boiled into gas in a refrigerant.

Gas moves through into a compressor, and increases in temperature. Gas moves through a condenser, and is distributed to the water based central heating system of the house.
