Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumpsA heat pump works in the same way as a refrigerator, but in reverse. Solar heat is stored in the ground, water and air and is available all year-round. Heat pumps transfer this heat from one medium to another.

As solar heat occurs naturally it has no cost or carbon impact. A heat pump transfers this free energy by mechanical means, using some electrical energy.

The design of your property will dictate the size and type of your heating system and therefore the size and type of heat pump to use. Green Plumbers can conduct a survey of your house to make sure that your heat pump is correctly specified.
