Are you exploring the options for your self builds heating requirements?

An alternative to Air Source Heat Pump to provide your heating & hot water needs for the home. Like Air Source, Ground Source uses a renewable, free energy source. This time instead of air, the sun’s heat is collected from the ground. For the ground loop, your garden needs to be 2-3 times larger than the floor area of your property.

How it works

A ground source heat pump works by moving heat that’s collected from the ground via a circulating loop of glycol (antifreeze). This then passes through a compressor that raises it to a higher temperature, which can then heat water for the heating and hot water circuits of the house. The cooled ground-loop fluid passes back into the ground where it absorbs further energy from the ground in a continuous process as long as heating is required.

UNDERFLOOR HEATING AND RADIATORS

Pairing a Heat Pump with Underfloor Heating and/or Radiators is a winning combination. Whatever the vision for your home, consider your heating options early on as this will give you the freedom to choose the solution that best suits your home, as well as maximise your home’s eco credentials. We design wet underfloor heating systems and correctly-specified convector radiators that comply with the heat demand for your home and each individual room.
