Ground Source Heat Pumps and Air Source Heat Pumps

We are experienced installers for both ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Both systems are best suited to providing energy for under floor heating systems, rather than conventional radiators.

Why use a heat pump?

Heat pumps offer very effective performance in your property, provided it is efficiently insulated. We also recommend combining a heat pump with solar thermal heating panels for your hot water supply. The two systems complement each other to provide households and businesses with highly successful heating.

Heat pump selection – our quick guide

Ground source heat pumps – the benefits

Ground source heat pumps extract freely available energy from the earth. This large amount of stored energy originally comes from the sun (solar energy) and also from rainfall. The heat pump converts it into low carbon, highly efficient heating and hot water – all at low cost.

Consistent temperatures below ground throughout the year mean ground source heat pumps are highly efficient regardless of changes in the seasons and in air temperature.

How do ground source heat pumps work?

Ground source heat pumps extract the energy using collectors, filled with water and antifreeze, buried in the earth. The collectors can be buried horizontally – where a large area of land is available – or vertically in a borehole when land is limited.

Ground source heat pumps – installation

Installation is more costly than for air source heat pumps, but the benefits – including consistent performance – are well worth considering.

Air source heat pumps – the benefits

Air source heat pumps can be installed either indoors or outdoors. The energy they convert can be used for heating, cooling, and to produce domestic hot water. Relatively mild winters in the UK mean the performance of air source heat pumps is comparable to that of ground source heat pumps.

How do air source heat pumps work?

Air source heat pumps use the freely available heat in the air to provide energy for effective heating and hot water systems. They can also extract energy from air as cold as -25°.

Air source heat pumps – installation

Air source heat pumps are ideal for new build or retrofit applications, particularly if space is limited. Installation is much more straightforward and therefore cheaper than for ground source heat pumps. This is because air is abundantly available and the pump doesn’t need much space.
