Geo Green Group were recently contacted by a customer, who owned an office building in Leicestershire and wanted to reduce their carbon footprint. Within a week Geo Green Group visited the property, carried out surveys on the existing heating and electrical system and designed and quoted for a 12kW Heat Pump along with a 25kW Solar PV system.
Thermal Heat Pumps
Heat Pumps are quickly becoming a very popular addition to most properties, especially new builds, whether commercial or domestic. Potential energy savings along with the RHI payments make an investment into GSHPs very attractive indeed. Whatever your heating requirements we’ll be sure to find you the perfect heating solution.
Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are a form of geothermal heating. It uses pipes which are buried in the ground to extract heat from the Earth. A mixture of water and antifreeze is circulated around a loop of pipe, called a ground loop, which is laid in the ground or through a large body of water. Heat from the ground or water is absorbed into the fluid and then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. The ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, so the heat pump can be used throughout the year.
By installing a GSHP you can lower your fuel bills, especially if you replace conventional electric/oil heating, and provide you with income through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). A geothermal heating system can make for a more environmentally friendly home by lowering home carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing. A ground source heat pump requires no fuel deliveries and minimal maintenance meaning, once it's installed, you don't need to do anything to keep your home heating running.
Are you considering a conventional boiler swap or installation? Pump the brakes and look at an air source heat pump instead.
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home. An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -20° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.
