Ground-source heat pumps
We install ground-source heat pumps to drive underfloor heating and pre-heat domestic hot water.
In a well-insulated building, a heat pump is an efficient alternative to a conventional boiler, giving 4kWh of heat for 1kWh of electric energy consumed. Heat pumps achieve this efficiency, called a coefficient of performance, only if the water being pumped into the heating system is at no more than 35° to 40°C. The hotter the water, the lower the efficiency of the pump. However, if your building is efficient, this level of heat is perfectly adequate and a heat pump may well be a good option.
