Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) use coiled pipes or probes that are buried underground to extract heat from the ground, this is then used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home. Due to the cost and complexity of installation, ground source heat pumps are better suited to new builds during the later construction phases, or premises with accessible land. From a new build to integrating a ground source heat pump into an existing central heating system, Phil France and his experienced engineers provide the necessary professional services for both domestic and commercial customers needs, from project concept to completion.

A ground source heat pump circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of collector pipes, which are buried in your garden. Heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid, then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. As the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, the heat pump can be used throughout the year.
Whether a loop or probe is used is determined in part by the accessible land - If space is limited, a vertical borehole can be drilled instead. The length of the ground loop or probe used depends on the size of your home and the amount of heat you need. Longer loops can draw more heat from the ground, but need more space to be buried in.
A water source or lake heat pump effectively works in the same way as a ground source heat pump. By using heat stored in the lake water and lake bed. The collector circuit is laid on the bottom of the waterway and carries heat to a waterside home. Using heat from water reduces energy consumption in an efficient way.
Yes. Ground source heat pumps are designed to deliver 100% of all your hot water and central heating.
Do GSHP need servicing often?
Once a year is recommended. In many cases this is necessary to keep the warranty valid.
Yes, this is often done by using an immersion, the hot water sits in the tank at 50 °C and therefore needs to be taken up once a week to over 65 °C to kill any bacteria in the cylinder.
No, a ground source heat pump operates from the thermostats in your property. If you set the temperature at 18 °C and the temperature in that room drops below, a signal will be sent to the ground source heat pump to deliver heat until the thermostat is satisfied. Many ground source heat pumps can now be remotely operated by smart controls on smartphone.tablet or laptop.
Yes, in some cases you may need a larger heat pump because the properties heat loss is higher than in a newer property but this will be idnetified on a preliminary heat loss report.If your property is very old and drafty it would be more beneficial to invest in other energy saving methods before a heat pump is installed.
Co-efficency of Performance.This refers to the heat pumps levels of efficiency, a good example would be electric radiators which have a COP gets 1kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity. In the case of a heat pump it is more like 1kW of electric for 4 kW of heat. Electric radiators are 100% efficient whereas ground source heat pumps are 400-500%. .
