A ground source heat pump draws heat from the ground around the dwelling by circulating fluid through a slinky (shown in the trench below). The heat is then magnified by pressuring the refrigerant before it is delivered to the living space via radiators and/or under floor heating systems.
A ground source heat pump is ideal for properties with adjacent land including large gardens, and is suitable for well insulated homes using under floor heating or low temperature heating systems.
Ground source heat pumps are capable of producing four times more heat energy than the electrical energy they use during operation. This offers significant carbon savings over conventional electrical heating systems.
