Ground Source Heat Pumps allow homeowners to heat and optionally cool their homes by utilising the unlimited heat energy stored in the ground beneath your feet.

Ground Source Heat Pumps operate on the principle that the earth beneath the surface remains at a constant temperature throughout the year, and that the ground acts as a heat source in winter and a heat sink in summer.

Only a few feet from the surface there is an average temperature of between 6-12°C all year round as a result of the suns annual heat. A Ground source Heat Pump utilises this abundant energy store by collecting it, increasing its temperature and delivering it efficiently to heat your home, for year round use.

Energy Efficiency

Ground Source Heat Pumps are renowned for their exceptional energy efficiency and high COP. They achieve this by tapping into the constant temperature of the ground, which remains relatively stable year-round. This means less energy is needed to heat or cool your home compared to traditional fossil fuel systems, resulting in significant energy savings.

Geothermal Advantage

Ground Source Heat Pumps take full advantage of geothermal energy. They do so by utilizing horizontal ground loops or vertical borehole, which are buried beneath the Earth’s surface. This technology efficiently transfers heat from the ground into your home during the winter and optionally expels excess heat into the ground during the summer, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment year-round.


As we strive for a greener and more sustainable future, Ground Source Heat Pumps play a crucial role. They boast minimal environmental impact due to their efficient operation and reduced reliance on fossil fuels. By choosing a Ground Source Heat Pump, you actively contribute to reducing your carbon footprint and promoting a cleaner planet.


Quiet Operation

Ground Source Heat Pumps are known for their quiet and unobtrusive operation. Unlike some traditional fossil fuel or biomass systems that can require more space & can be noisy, Ground Source Heat Pumps provide a peaceful indoor environment, enhancing your comfort and reducing noise pollution.
