Ground source heat pumps

Making your home more energy efficient with heat pumps

Ground source heat pumps

Ground heat pumps harness the stored solar energy from just beneath the ground surface, via a horizontal collector loop which is located at a depth of approximately one metre below ground level and at a distance of approximately one metre apart.

Benefits of a ground source heat pump

  • no drilling needed
  • lower installation costs
  • the coil in the ground maintains an even temperature throughout the year
  • permits passive cooling
