Ground Source Heat Pumps take free solar energy stored in the ground, referred to as ‘ground source heat’ and use it to heat your home and hot water.
Because this type of renewable energy simply moves the heat, rather than extracting it by burning fossil fuels, it is far more efficient than most other types of domestic heating technology.
In fact, ground source heat pumps typically produce 3 to 4 kilowatts of heat from just 1 kilowatt of electricity, making them up to 400% efficient.
Ground Source Heat Pumps are Reliable
Ground source heat pumps are reliable, low maintenance and kind to the environment. They offer one of the most reliable heat sources of all fuel types because the temperature just a metre or so below the ground remains at 8º to 13º centigrade throughout the whole of the year.
Ground source heat pumps are not affected by increasing fuel prices, lack of sunlight or threatened supplies of fossil fuels.
