How Do Ground Source Heat Pumps Work?
There are a couple of different systems available, but they mostly work by extracting the naturally occurring heat from the ground outside and transferring it to the inside of the building. In the UK, the ground temperature a couple of metres down stays at around 11 degrees C most of the year. To make use of this stable heat source, pipes are buried at this depth and filled with liquid. This liquid absorbs the warmth from the ground and carries it to the heat exchange to heat the interior of the building.
Is a Ground Source Heat Pump Suitable For My Home?
If you’re thinking about having a ground source heat system installed on your property, get in contact with us so we can talk to you about the benefits and drawbacks. It’s not suitable for every building, but as a greener energy source, it’s worth considering.
Ground Source Heat Pumps are a good alternative system to install if your property isn’t on a mains gas supply. You must, however, have a piece of land large enough to have the pipes installed into the ground. The land doesn’t have to be huge, but there are minimum sizes.
Grants For Ground Source Heat Pumps
You can get thousands of pounds towards a new heating system with ground source heat pump grants. The UK government is committed to reaching net zero emissions, and that’s why it is offering incentives to reduce the cost of greener heating.
