ALL ABOUT Ground Source Heat PUMPs

Ground Source Heat Pumps work by drawing in heat from the ground. It then transfers heat to provide you with your heating needs. It distributes via underfloor heating and radiators.

When outside temperatures are below zero, 100% of your heating and hot water needs can still be generated. This is because the ground temperature is generally between 6 – 12 degrees all year round.

The ground loop can sit horizontally or vertically. If horizontally laid, the loops need to be a meter below the surface. If vertically laid, a bore is drilled around 100 meters down. If you have a lake, they work very well as this temperature is also consistent.

The most common configuration is horizontal ground loop. This loop is laid in a straight line, spaced at least 1 meter apart. A good deal of land is needed for the heat pump groundwork. A good rule of thumb being 3 times the amount of floor space you are looking to heat.

Many heat pumps qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, which offers money for simply installing and using renewable energy products.

The Green Square range offers NIBE ground source heat pumps, as well as DIMPLEX Ground source heat pump product ranges. Covering various sizes and needs for properties and businesses.
