Ground Source heat pump technology provides us with heat generated from the ground.
If you have the space to run pipes under ground we can produce up to 4kw of heat from every 1kw of electricity used giving us a CoP of 4.0 some units even higher. The units can be compact if space is an issue and also offer high hot water outputs if needed.
On a standard domestic electrical supply we can have up to a 14/15Kw heat pump this applies to both air and ground source – for three phase and non domestic applications we can raise the heat out put of the heat pump to as high as needed.
Other options include bore holes which can be costly but effective with the current RHI payment currently in place for this domestic source.
