Ground source heat pumps, known as GSHPs, are an efficient way of warming a domestic or commercial building. These systems have been around for some time and use a renewable source of energy that will save money on heating costs. They are a greener option and are environmentally responsible, helping you reduce your carbon footprint. 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 meters down stays at around 11 degrees C most of the year. Pipes buried at this level are laid 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. Our team at Hoopla can answer any questions you have about ground source heat pumps and discuss whether it’s right for your property. As we have experience with all kinds of heating, we can offer you some guidance and an idea of the costs involved.
Is a Ground Source Heat Pump Best for Me?
If you’re thinking about having a ground source heat system installed in your property in Henley on Thames, 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.
They are a good alternative system to have if the property isn’t on a mains gas supply. Ground source heat systems don’t need a regular delivery of oil or gas by lorry, so there are no access issues to worry about. 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. There are other things to think about, such as a location for the pump and heat exchange.
