Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) By Future Energy
A Ground Source Heat Pump creates energy by pumping water through pipes buried beneath the ground. This water which is warmed by the ground then passes through the pump which increases its temperature for hot water and heating.
Like a traditional boiler the hot water can be pumped through underfloor heating pipes or radiators to heat property, and naturally hot water to your taps.
Benefits of Ground Source Heat Pumps
- Lowers fuel bills in comparison to conventional heating methods
- Income from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme
- Lower carbon footprint
- No piped gas or oil tank required
- Heats your property and your water
- Low maintenance
Note: The heat pump still requires an electricity supply to pump the water.
The Energy Savings Trust found in 2015 typical savings of £410 to £595 per year when replacing gas heating and £830 to £1,465 per year when replacing electric immersion heating.
Ground Source Heat Pumps qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Programme and a typical house in England, Scotland or Wales could receive between £2,610 to £3,940 a year.
