Ground Source Heat Pumps

Wright Renewable Heating is committed to providing affordable, quality and efficient renewable heating solutions to the UK domestic and commercial market and it is our intention to build our customer base through recommendation, strategic alliances and targeted advertising to become a supplier of choice. Our experienced team supplies, installs and maintains air and ground source heat pumps to existing housing stock, new build homes and commercial premises.

How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work

Did you know…

Since the Earth absorbs energy released from the sun, underground temperatures remain constant year-round. In the UK, the temperature of the Earth a few metres below our feet is constant at around 8-11°C.

The Ground Loop System draws the heat from the ground itself and uses a continuous loop of piping connected to the indoor heat pump. If space is an issue – typically a loop system will require a minimum of half an acre of land adjacent to your property, then bore holes may be an option.

Ground source heat pump boreholes are vertical ground arrays or collectors used to extract heat energy from rock to a ground source heat pump. They save space and minimise disruption in heat pump installation projects.

Benefits of Ground Source Heat Pumps

What’s the Benefits

GSHP systems save energy by using the constant temperature of the ground to increase the seasonal efficiency of home heating and one of the most energy-efficient water heating systems.

It will heat your home as well as your hot water and underfloor heating.

It could lower your fuel bills and will lower your carbon emissions.

Low maintenance and low running costs.

Government Funding through RHI for Ground Source Heat Pumps

Government Funding

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) supports the decarbonisation of heat in buildings. It provides upfront capital grants to support the installation of heat pumps in homes and non-domestic buildings in England and Wales.

Acting on behalf of property owners, installers can apply for:

£5000 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump or £6000 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump, including water source heat pumps.

See our Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) Funding page for full details. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is responsible for the scheme policy and legislation. This is set out in the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (England and Wales) Regulations 2022.

Let’s see how Ground Source Heat Pumps work

A Ground Source Heat Pump can produce 4 to 5 kilowatts (kW) of heat for every 1 kW of electricity it consumes. They generally achieve higher efficiency than any other heating system and can significantly reduce a property’s heating costs by around two-thirds compared to conventional electric heating.

A mixture of water and antifreeze is pumped into the ground via the heat pump, and the antifreeze mixture is continuously warmed up by the constant temperature of the ground.

The liquid is fed into a heat exchanger and energy absorbed from the ground is transferred to a refrigerant, which boils at a low temperature until it turns into a gas.

The gas is fed into a compressor and the compressing process makes the temperature of the gas rise.

This is then fed to a condenser, where it is distributed to the wet central heating system of the property, such as radiators, showers, taps, and underfloor heating. It then reverts ready to start the cycle again.

    The International Energy Agency, in their latest special report, stresses that no new gas boilers should be sold after 2025 if Net Zero targets need to be achieved by 2050. Heat pumps are expected to be a better, low-carbon alternative to heating properties in the foreseeable future.
