Ground source heating utilises the geothermal solar energy stored underground, and is becoming the most dependable, reliable and cost effective form of renewable energy for domestic and commercial users.
A heat pump can be used for both heating and cooling, and for each kW used to power the system it can return up to 4kW of heat. For the ground source heat pump to operate it is necessary to install a heat collection system in the ground.
WB+AD Morgan’s vertical ground source heating system involves drilling one or more boreholes. The vertical system eliminates the need to dig extensive trenches and reduces the level of disturbance, delivering overall consistency and efficiency. Utilising a borehole is the most efficient way of extracting heat from the ground.
Benefits of a ground source heating system:
- Huge saving opportunities
- Electricity used to power the heat pump is likely to produce 3 or 4 times its energy output from the ground source
- Investment in renewable energy and a sustainable heating system
- Reduction in CO2 emissions
