How Ground Source heat pumps work
By taking advantage of the naturally occurring heat within the ground, a Ground Source heat pump is located in a trench or borehole within your property and then connected to your existing heating system. This provides the energy to heat your home including radiators, underfloor heating, and hot water. Because your heating system utilises the naturally occurring heat in the ground, a ground source heat pump installation provides one of the lowest running costs of any heating system.
How Air Source heat pumps work
Air Source heat Pumps take advantage of the naturally occurring heat within the surrounding air, absorbing this heat and transferring it to either or both your central heating system (water based) or a warm air circulation system.
Heat Pump Installation Considerations
Access and space – Suitably sized garden for a trench or borehole and have access for digging machinery.
Insulation – Heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature so it is important your home is well-insulated and draught-proof to prevent heat loss. Larger radiators or underfloor heating may be a consideration.
Planning – Air Source heat pumps are visible from outside so please check with local planning departments
