The sun radiates energy on the earth’s surface; dig one metre down, and the ground is a thermal store from which we can extract free energy. When we install a ground source heat pump, we lay loops of pipes in the ground, or we place them in a bore hole up to 200m deep. The pipes contain a liquid which absorbs the ground heat, however it is very important not to over extract this natural resource and we at Ardenham Energy give careful consideration to the design of any ground collector to be sustainable for at least 25 years. The ground collector provides the heat source for a heat pump located inside the property.
Ground source heat pumps are silent with negligible maintenance needs and costs and no visible external units. Ground source heat pumps can be installed in existing properties, and are particularly recommended for new builds and larger homes or business/community use premises.
Because of the constant level of heat, ground source heat pumps are even more efficient than air source heat pumps, though they cost more to install. Once installed and operating, you can expect a cut in fuel bills of between 35% and 70%.
