A ground source heat pump uses the constant latent geothermal heat in ground water to produce thermal energy ideal for heating and hot water. Ground source heat pumps use electricity and so for every 1kW of electricity used to operate the heat pumps, 3kW to 5kW of heat energy is produced and available for heating purposes.
A ground source heat pump is a true ‘fit-and-forget’ technology, that can be comfortably installed in a range of applications, bringing significant benefits to all. GSM ltd have installed hundreds of Ground source heat pumps and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to provide you with the best solution.
Ground source heat pumps are designed to extract renewable heat energy from a number of renewable energy sources providing greater flexibility, affordability and compatibility with a range of applications. The most common form of heat extraction is in the form of horizontal Slinkys.
This installation method involves excavating 50 meter trenches at a depth of 1.3meters. Each trench is 5 meters apart so it is not suitable for all properties as the required land may not available. (an open loop heat pump or air source heat pumps may be more suitable).
Ground source heat pumps are not a one size fits all technology; they can be used in a variety of different configurations to suit a whole host of different requirements. GSM Ltd can advise you on the best solution for your individual project to ensure you get the most efficient, reliable heating system
