What Is A Heat Pump & How Do They Work?
A heat pump transfers heat from the outside air/ground to water which heats your radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, showers and baths.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground Source Heat Pumps utilize the thermal energy stored within the ground around your property, producing hot water for heating and hot water. The ground heat is collected via pipework layed out either horizontally or vertically depending on the available space around your property. So either trenches or boreholes will be dug out for this purpose. The heat pump system collects and compresses this liquid heat and transfers it to your heating and hot water system
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air Source Heat Pumps collects thermal energy from the outside air. The heat pump is located externally, either next to an outside wall, or connected to the property with pre-insulated pipes buried in a trench. The main internally located items are the hot water cylinder, a buffer tank and two expansion vessels.
