About Ground Source Heat Pumps

Well designed GSHP systems provide the lowest running cost of any heating system.

Ground Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the ground by circulating fluid through buried pipes in horizontal trenches or vertical boreholes. They concentrate heat by using a vapour compression cycle and transfer heat into buildings to provide heating and hot water without burning fossil fuels, providing a highly efficient and renewable heating solution.

A well designed GSHP system provides the lowest running cost of any heating system because it uses a small amount of electricity to transfer a large amount of naturally occuring heat from the ground into your building.
