Ground Source Heat Pumps work by extracting energy from the ground and converting it into heat for your home. They do so by passing a solution through a long length of piping that is buried in the ground surrounding your property. This piping can be buried, using a deep borehole, or long shallow trenches depending on the best solution for your property. The Ground Source Heat Pump can work with both existing central heating systems and underfloor heating. Heat pumps do require some electricity to run, but with conversion efficiencies of between 300 and 500% (meaning that, for every unit of electricity used, you get 3-5 units of heat), it is a far more efficient and renewable way to heat your home.
