Ground and air source heat pumps are considered renewable sources of heating as they use free heat from the ground or air. They can be used for both central heating and domestic hot water.

A ground source heat pump (GSHP) uses the free natural energy stored in the earth using a network of pipes buried deep into the ground to heat your home. An alternative is to have bore pipes installed which go far deeper down into the ground but cause less disruption to surrounding areas

An air source heat pump (ASHP) is placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run but uses far less electrical energy than the heat it produces.

Air source heat pumps are better suited to existing builds as there is no need to dig large pipe work trenches and installation is fairly simple

Both systems use ambient heat from the ground or air instead of burning fuel. They will fully replace your existing gas boiler or electric heating system and become the sole source for heating and domestic hot water in the home.


For every single kilowatt of electricity used to power the ground and air source heat pumps, this system could generate up to 4Kw in energy for your home.
