Ground Source Heat Pumps

nibeGround Source Heat pumps work by extracting the heat which is stored in the ground accessed either with deep boreholes, typically 60 -120m deep, or through a series of trenches.  In both cases a network of pipes are installed to capture the energy.  Trenches are more suitable for properties with a larger amount of land and will involve digging up the ground to lay the pipes at approximately 1.2m deep. The pipe network is then connected to a heat pump unit which is typically housed in a garage or outhouse which is in turn connected to the property’s heating and hot water systems.
