Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs), also known as Geothermal Heat Pumps, can use as much as 75% of the energy needed to heat a home heating system from freely available, inexhaustible solar energy stored in the ground. A Ground source heat pump works by circulating a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of pipe, called a ground loop, which is buried underground. The fluid in the pipe absorbs the heat from the ground, and will then pass this heat into a a heat exchange, which in turns passes the heat into the ground source heat pump. Due to highly stable temperatures below the earth’s surface, ground source heat pumps installed in Ireland and Northern Ireland provide high levels of efficiency for space and water heating all year round. Ground source heat pumps are available in a wide range of model types and capacities suitable for providing all of a home’s heating requirements.
Ground Source Heat Pumps can be used in existing homes, refurbishments, or new homes. Ground source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers, so it is essential that your home (new or old) is well insulated and draught-proofed for the heating system to be effective. Dimplex and Nibe ground source heat pumps are available in a range of sizes and configurations to provide a sustainable, cost effective heating and hot water solution for your home. Ideal for use with either underfloor heating, SmartRad or conventional radiator systems Dimplex and Nibe ground source heat pumps are also able to provide domestic hot water
If you are installing a Ground Source Heat Pump in Northern Ireland you can apply for an installation grant of 3500 from the Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme, and seven years of payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme. Below you will find details of the ground source heat pumps that Acorn Renewables Ltd supply and install across Ireland and Northern Ireland
