GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS - MODERN HEAT PROVISION
Reclaim control of running costs and meet your climate pledge with a natural, low emission heating system intelligently designed with your demand in mind. Uncover the benefits of a ground source heat pump installation with Elite Renewables Ltd.
HEATING OR COOLING YOUR PROPERTY FROM THE GROUND UP
Often also referred to as a ‘ground-to-water heat pump’, or simply a ‘heat pump’, a ground source heat pump (GSHP) can revolutionise the way in which you heat your home. Extracting heat energy from the ground outside, and transferring this into the property, the simple yet effective home heating solution delivers heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods than a traditional boiler system. Particularly useful for underfloor heating, larger radiators, and to heat your hot water cylinder, the mechanism remarkably works both ways - offering an outlet for heat to escape during the warmer months, keeping your home or business comfortable all year round, and acting much like a traditional air conditioning system.
Proven versatility, reliability and emission-free operation makes heat pumps a popular choice for properties across London, and these units could be the perfect way to optimise your heating system while also mitigating safety concerns, fuel costs, and tackling carbon emissions. Though ground source heat pumps may prove more challenging to install than their air source heat pump alternative, they’re often more energy efficient, offering our clients a better return on their investment. Ultimately, your choice may come down to the property you own, and the limitations in place, so why not take a look at our portfolio and see how your home measures up?

HOW DOES THE GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMP WORK?
The system, commissioned and installed by Elite Renewables Ltd, will feature a loop of piping, buried outside your property, that circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze. Heat from the ground is then absorbed into the fluid before being passed through a heat exchanger connected to the heat pump for distribution to your building. As the ground remains a consistent temperature under the surface, the heat pump can be used throughout the year.
The length of the ground loop depends on the size of your property and your usage needs. If a longer loop is required and space is limited, a vertical borehole can be drilled instead, without the need for planning permission. The specifics will be outlined before your installation with our GSHPA (Ground Source Heat Pump Association) accredited team, for transparent, trusted services that benefit you.
