GSHP we used boar holes to extract heat from the groun, this heat is then used to supply radiators, underfloor heating, warm air central heating systems, hot water, air source and domestic solar panels.
GSHP circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of pipe work buried in the garden. Heat from the ground absorbed into the fluid and passed through a heat exchange and into the heat pump. Ground source stays at a constant temperature so can be used throughout the year. If outside space is limited a boar hole will be used instead.
Benefits of Groundsource:
* Lower fuel Bills
* Low Carbon admissions
* No refuelling needed
* Minimum maintenance
* Heats both water and heating
May need to be on constant during winter months
