What is GSHP?

GSHP - Ground Source Heat Pump

GSHP's use latent solar energy stored in the ground and compress it to heat your building. The heat is extracted from the soil by means of a plastic pipe collector system which is buried in the ground and contains water mixed with a vegetable-based antifreeze material. This non-freezing liquid is environmentally friendly and circulates through the collector pipe, delivering harvested heat to the heat pump. The heat pump then compressess and converts the heat energy from the ground into usable energy for heating and, if required, hot water. Collector pipes may be installed horizontally or vertically in the ground, depending on site conditions and energy requirements.
