What is Ground Source Heating?
A Ground source heating system can be used to extract heat from ground deposits, converting it into an economic and environmentally form of heating. The system can also be used to provide cooling.
The Geothermal Borehole Construction Process:
- Drilling a number of boreholes to the depths specified by the designer
- Installing a geothermal loop to the bottom of a borehole (a 100m geothermal loop is made of 2nr 100m lengths of polyethylene pipe joined by a “U” bend)
- Back-filling of the borehole, from the bottom up, using thermal enhanced grout
- Flow and pressure test each individual borehole loop for blockages after installation and back-filling has taken place
- Capping of all open borehole loops, immediately upon completion
- Connecting systems as specified in the heat pump schematic drawing supplied by the design team
- Pressure-test the complete installed system
- Flow-test complete system for any blockages
Benefits of Geothermal
Domestic geothermal energy offers the potential to convert your investment into savings. Statistics show that following your installation, it is possible that the geothermal system could have paid itself off within ten years as well as reducing CO2 emissions.
We have all the necessary expertise to help you benefit from long term cost savings while looking to the future with a clean, adaptable and environmentally friendly energy solution.
Is it costly?
Many will argue that geothermal is an expense, this can be true but long term investment means long term saving.
