Use 20-50% less energy than conventional heating systems
Thanks to their low energy consumption levels, ground source heat pump installations use between 20-50% less energy than conventional heating and cooling systems. A ground source heat pump typically uses one unit of electric power to draw three units of heat out of the ground. This means that every kW of electricity is converted into 3 to 5 kW of heating or 2 to 3 kW of cooling energy.
Research has shown that the energy efficiency rates that ground source heat pumps can deliver varies from 300%-500%. What’s more they can also be used to improve humidity levels in a property.
Minimal environmental impact
As consumers, we are all increasingly aware of adopting environmentally friendly energy solutions for our homes. Ground source heating systems work by harnessing natural renewable sources, cutting carbon footprint. It’s good for the planet but it also helps you make big savings on your energy costs.
The beauty of a ground source heat pump is that you can customise the pump to meet your specific energy needs. If there is no need for high temperature output, you can opt for a version that will use less electricity and lower heat capacity. This could potentially halve the cost of heating water.
Quiet and Aesthetically Pleasing
Ground source heat pumps are exceptionally quiet – you wouldn’t even know they were there! And, since there are no above ground outdoor units involved, they do not affect the integrity of the surrounding landscape.
Ideal for year-round heating and cooling
Our ground source heating systems are perfect for both summer and winter use. The system will provide the required indoor temperature throughout your home - whether it is boiling hot or freezing cold outside.
Space Saving Flexibility
Ground source heat pumps can be configured to suit all types of home - – new or old. They also take up less space than any conventional central heating system. Additionally, they provide greater control over which parts of the property that needs to be heated. So you won’t be wasting money on unnecessary heating!
