Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) use pipes which are buried in the garden or land to extract heat from the ground. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating and hot water in your home. 

A ground source heat pump circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of pipe, called a slinky, which is buried in your garden. The heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid and then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. The ground stays at a steady temperature under the surface, so the heat pump can be used throughout the year.

The length of the slinkies depends on the size of your home or building and the amount of heat you need. Longer slinkies can draw more heat from the ground, but need more space to be buried in. Our expert team will be able to advise you.

What are the benefits of installing a ground source heat pump?

  • Reduce your carbon footprint by lowering your energy consumption by 20-25% compared to conventional heating or cooling systems. 

  • Lower your fuel bills - energy is taken from the ground which reduces your dependency of fossil fuels. 

  • Earn from your investment through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) 

  • No fuel deliveries are needed

  • Can heat your home as well as your water

  • Minimal maintenance required as once installed the system can effectively be left to get on with its job. 

Ground Source Heat Pump Installations 

Any Renewable Energy installation which attracts government-backed funding requires both the equipment and the installer to be accredited under a government-authorised scheme. This accreditation is tested yearly with a lengthy inspection over several days at the installers premises and also involves customer site visits.

Pure Green Energy has several hundred installations to their credit covering all renewable technologies and our expert team is here to advise you on the right system to suit you.
