Ground source heat pumps
Ground source heat pumps installed
Ground source heat pumps, or GSHPs, offer a renewable and smarter way of heating a building. At Finbra we are experienced and trained to supply, fit and service ground source heat pumps for domestic homes and commercial buildings. Working in the Woodbridge and Ipswich are of Suffolk, our team is committed to assisting the local community with greener heating options. It is generally agreed that we need to explore alternative ways of heating our homes and businesses. To keep relying on fossil fuel is no longer an option and we need to take steps to move away from this method for future generations.
One of the ways of heating buildings responsibly is to install a ground source heat pump. These are a tried and trusted method of central heating. Hot water can also be supplied using this method too. It works by extracting the heat found in the ground. The temperature of the soil stays fairly consistent underneath the ground, even in the UK. By burying pipes in the garden and running a mix of water and anti-freeze through these pipes, heat is absorbed into the liquid. A heat exchanger then makes use of this liquid inside the building.
When we survey your property to make sure a ground source pump is the right renewable for you, we will look at the size of your garden or land. The bigger the area that pipes can be installed into the better. This is because longer ground loops of piping can be laid under the soil. But if there is only a small amount of garden, we can sometimes install vertical pipes. To fully understand what can be fitted, give us a call and we will investigate the options for you. Our team of professional engineers will let you know what renewable heating is right for you and the costs of the work involved.
The benefits of ground source heat pumps
Ground source heat pumps can be installed where mains gas is not available. This removes the need for fuel deliveries, such as oil. There could be a considerable saving in energy costs with this style of heating. There is also the potential for an income from the Renewable Heat Incentive. If you are striving to reduce your carbon footprint, then using a ground source heat pump will make a huge difference. The energy used to heat your home is greener and more planet-friendly.
