Underfloor Heating can be installed with an Air Source Heat Pump or Ground Source Heat Pump system offering a highly efficient heating solution for your home or office space.Contact Us...
Air source heat pumps work by converting the energy of the outside air into heat. This creates a comfortable temperature inside the house as well as supplying energy for the hot water system. As with all heat pumps, air source models are most efficient when supplying low temperature systems such as under floor heating.
Ground Source Heat Pumps work best with heating systems which are optimised to run at a lower water temperature than is commonly used in UK boiler and radiator systems. As such, they make an ideal partner for under floor heating systems.
The only energy used by Ground Source Heat Pump systems is electricity to power the pumps. Typically, a Ground Source Heat Pump will deliver three or four times as much thermal energy (heat) as is used in electrical energy to drive the system. For a particularly environmental solution, green electricity can be purchased.
If you do not have the room to install a ground loop, then a Borehole (Vertical Loop) system can be used. Boreholes are drilled to a pre-determined depth (Geothermal boreholes are typically 50 to 100 metres deep and approximately 150mm in diameter).
Water underfloor Heating can also be installed with more traditional heating sources such as gas boilers, but more modern installations are now opting for a renewable energy solution.
