The Benefits Of Ground Source Heat Pumps

A ground source heat pump is a cost-effective and sustainable heating and cooling system on the market today. This type of heat pump comes with a wide range of services such as hot water, heat generation, maintaining proper humidity levels, and air cooling. The ground source heat pump is quite appealing to a wide range of customers in the United Kingdom because the prices of these pumps are decreasing with each passing year. That’s due to the technological improvement made to these systems. Here are some of the many benefits of ground source heat pumps.

For this purpose, a network of pipes will be installed underground at a depth of between 10m to 150m. The absorbed heat is transported from its source (Earth’s crust) to the relevant areas in the building that needs heating or cooling. Ground heat pumps are cheaper to operate compared to both gas and electric heating systems. Because these pumps are fully automated, they require much less work compared to biomass boilers.
