Solar Heating and Heat Pumps - Sussex, Surrey and Kent

Ground Source Heat Pumps

There are many conflicting stories about ground source heat pumps, which can sometimes leave people feeling confused as to how they work. Put simply, ground source heat pumps move stored solar energy, sometimes referred to as ground source heat, into the home to provide a total solution for domestic hot water and all your heating needs.

Energy efficient

Ground source heat pumps not only make use of renewable energy in the form of ground source heat, they do so in a highly efficient manner. Heat pumps simply move stored energy instead of creating it by burning fossil fuels, they are capable of producing 4kW of heat using just 1kW of electricity. This gives an efficiency of 400%, sometimes stated as a Co-efficient Of Performance (COP) of 4:1.

Collecting the heat

Collection of this ground source heat is achieved by installing a series of pipes (a ground loop sometimes called slinky’s) in the ground which contain a water and glycol mix.

Pipes can be laid in trenches or using bore holes.

The surrounding soil is at a higher temperature, typically 10°C – 13°C which heats the glycol mix as it is pumped around the ground loop.

This heated water is fed into a 'reverse refrigerator' which raises the low grade heat to a higher temperature suitable for heating your home and domestic hot water.
