Although providing the same or similar benefits to an Air Source Heat Pump, the installation process of a Ground Source Heat Pump differs slightly. With pipes running under the surface, the GSHP extracts heat from the ground as opposed to sourcing it from the air.
Using the same method as the ASHP, the heat from the ground will be taken into a ground loop of refrigerant fluid and then compressed to allow for hot air to flow through the other side, heating up your radiators and underfloor heating.
The amount of heat you will receive from the ground is all dependent on the size of your property and space available, as the larger the loop the greater the heat.
The time to install a GSHP will be longer than the ASHP, due to the complexity of being installed into the ground. Installing a GSHP will require a considerable amount of digging, the time will also depend on how much work is needed, depending on the size of each property. However, interior installations are much simpler and do not require much time.
A medium to large property is better suited for a GSHP due to the amount of pipework needed for underground, outside. Once your property size has been determined, we can then work out how much work will be required, the time for installation and your cost.
