Ground Source Heat Pumps
How do they work?
The earth stores an enormous amount of solar energy from both solar radiation and rainfall. To extract this energy, ground collectors consisting of flexible poly ethylene pipes are buried in the earth. A mixture of water and anti-freeze is then circulated through the pipe loops, attracting the heat energy and transferring it to the heat pump. This can be done using two different methods: Bore Hole or Slinky. See below for more information.
