Ground Source/Geothermal

Ground source heat pumps example

Why choose a ground source heat pump?

  • Lowest possible running costs in any weather, (around one third of the cost of oil)
  • Outdoor temperature linked heat production – comfortable constant & even heating
  • On board separate control of radiators and floor heating
  • Models Available with built in water heating saves installation time & stylish looks allow integration in utility rooms or even kitchens
  • Europe’s quietest heat pumps – locating indoors saves energy and installation costs too
  • Units from 5kW to 60kW – modular installation for large buildings up to 540 kW
  • SMS, APP and Internet connection possible with Nibe Uplink
  • FLM Heat Recovery ventilation integration option available…waste heat goes back into the collector or borehole
  • Solar integration for both hot water and heating support available

With the aid of a ground source heat pump, solar energy stored in the ground can be collected and used to heat your home. Often referred to as geothermal heating, the heat collected is mostly from the sun in fact and not the earth’s core.

Warmth builds up underground from the first days of spring when the surface temperature of the earth starts to increase, to high summer, when the rays of the midday sun penetrate down into the ground. Warm rainwater also permeates the upper layers of the ground. By the time the autumn leaves are falling, there’s enough energy stored in the ground to heat up your house throughout the coldest winter. A heat pump captures and upgrades this naturally occurring warmth, so even if the summer seems wet and cool, it can still provide enough energy to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature throughout the coldest winter.
