Ground source heat pumps are a renewable energy source which create heat by utilising the natural heat in the soil underneath the surface. They operate using pipes below the ground through which fluid is distributed. This fluid extracts heat from the ground which is then compressed in order to heat water that can be used in domestic heating, either radiators or underfloor heating. Ground source heat pumps are ideally partnered with underfloor heating or large radiators as they produce hot water at a marginally lower temperature than regular non-renewable boilers.
Ground source heat pumps need a quite large amount of outside space to install the pipework. Commonly a domestic system will need to have 2 trenches roughly 30-40 metres long. Addititionally there is an option to set up a vertical borehole in locations where outdoor space is limited. Ground source heat systems are completely automated and run silently. Also, they are out of sight as the majority of the equipment is underground or inside the building.
Ground source heat pumps use electricity to perform, but they are very efficient compared to other non-renewable heating options. They can be matched with renewable electricity generators like solar photovoltaic or wind generators. Ground source heat pumps also take advantage of the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, which means the systems can pay for themselves as time passes as you are paid for the heat that you produce.
