At SolarTech we provide our clients with Ground Source Heat Pumps. Ground Source heat pumps work by collecting the heat from underneath the ground and transferring this into usable heat through the use of a heat pump. His type of method is quite similar to a refrigerator working in reverse. The heat that is generated through can be used for domestic hot water or heating an area of space. The Ground Source Heat Pump cycle is highly efficient and delivers up to 4kW of heat energy for every kW of energy input into the system.
Air Source heat pumps capture the heat from air instead of from the ground, as a Ground Source Heat Pump would do. But although Air Source Heat Pumps are efficient they only deliver around 3kW for every kW of energy that is inputted into the system.
The cost of Ground Source Heat Pump can be slightly higher compared to Air Source Heat Pumps but produces more kW. Although the unit will take up for space compared to an air source unit, but our designers will advise you on what will be the most cost effective and efficient for your individual needs.
The advantage with having Air or Ground Source Heat Pump systems is that they can also be integrated with solar panel systems, solar hot water heating systems and they work well with under floor heating. Ground source heat pumps have proven to provide new homes with useful heating. The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government scheme that has been set up to support the uptake of renewable energy systems. RHI payments will apply if you have had a air or ground source heat pump system installed.
Any installations that have been done after July 29, 2011 are entitled to receiving £1250 premium payment and then from October 2012 will receive ongoing RHI payments. If you require more information then please visit our funding page.
The city of Coventry has achieved national notoriety for several reasons, most proudly as the home of Jaguar cars but also thanks to enduring heavy bombing through the second world war.
