Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPS)
Ground Source Heat Pumps have achieved a positive relationship with the Green Deal initiative having built a successful foundation based on the systems excellent efficiency. The concept is based around heat generators but with a low carbon design. The main function of the process takes place underground where a circular pipe system will be fitted. This circular pipe will be home to a combination of both water and antifreeze being pumped through. The process is used to heat radiators and water as the liquid when passing through the pipe absorbs the grounds heat allowing it to reach and maintain a temperature usually at approximately 15°C.
The key benefits of implementing Ground Source Heat Pumps are similar in some ways to that of Air Source Heat Pumps in terms of the success levels in ecological and financial factors. The systems also run solely on electricity, therefore removing the necessity for both gas and oil requirements. It is this fact that makes this system perfect for areas of poor connectivity. The final key benefit revolves around the Green Deal itself. The Green Deal sets out to reduce carbon emissions and the success rates of Ground Source Heat Pumps run perfectly parallel to this aim. It has been researched and shown that Ground Source Heat Pumps can save up to 1.8 tonnes of emissions throughout the calendar year; an impressive statistic to take note of.
