These pipes will be within trenches, or a borehole if space is limited. A mixture of water and antifreeze is circulated around a loop of pipe and the heat absorbed into the liquid then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump.
These systems are suitable for use throughout the year, as the ground maintains a fairly constant temperature beneath the surface. The loop of pipe in the ground will vary in length depending on your heating needs and property size.
These heat systems are a great alternative to electric heating, LPG or oil fuelled systems and could potentially lower your fuel bills, especially where replacing conventional electric heating.
Our engineers will be able to advise and assist on the design of your ground source heat pump heating system, if this is appropriate for your property. Whilst your garden does not need to be large for the pipework, the ground needs to be suitable and the garden needs to be accessible for digging an appropriate trench or borehole.
