Ground source heat pumps are a green power source which generate heat by using the natural heat in the soil below the surface. They work using piping below the ground through which fluid is distributed. This fluid extracts heat from the ground which is then compressed to heat water that can be used in domestic heating, either radiators or underfloor heating. Ground source heat pumps are ideally partnered with underfloor heating or large radiators as they produce hot water at a slightly lower temperature than standard non-renewable boilers.
Ground source heat pumps require a fairer large amount of outside space to lay down the pipework. Normally a domestic system will require 2 trenches roughly 30-40 metres in length. There is also an option to install a vertical borehole in locations where outdoor space is restricted. Ground source heat systems are fully automatic and run silently. Also, they are hidden as the majority of the equipment is underground or inside the building.
Ground source heat pumps use electricity to perform, but they are really efficient when compared to other non-renewable heating options. They may also be coupled with green electricity generators like solar photovoltaic or wind generators. Ground source heat pumps also take advantage of the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, which means the systems can pay for themselves over time as you are paid for the heat that you produce.

Middlesex is found about the outskirts of Greater London and is one of England’s 39 historic counties. It’s the second smallest by area yet still carries a population more than 2 million.

Subsequently, there’s a good amount of houses post World War Two, all needing upgrading to keep value and aesthetic appeal in the Middlesex County. For any home improvements you’re considering, only work with vetted specialists in your region to ensure high quality.
