Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat PumpsNexusBS’s Ground source heat pumps work by using heat stored in the ground from the sun’s solar radiation to supply all of the energy required for a home’s heating and hot water system.

How it works?

The top 15 metres of the Earth’s surface maintains a relatively constant temperature of approximately 12?C. This energy can be used to heat buildings indirectly. Pipe is buried in the ground, either in a borehole or a horizontal trench. The pipe is a closed circuit and is filled with a mixture of water and antifreeze, which is pumped round the pipe, absorbing heat from the ground.
