ASHP & GSHP

Air vs Ground Source

Both Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pump systems are a very efficient and effective form of heating for customers considering reducing their dependency on fossil fuels and reduce their energy costs, as well as contribute towards a greener environment. They can supply the full heat and hot water demand for a property using a standard wet radiator system.
Government Scheme

Payback Scheme

Customers will also receive a payback via the government RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) Scheme over 7 yrs whilst reducing their energy usage and bills!
Heat Pump Installation

Installation Types

An air source heat pump is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. Ground source heat pumps use pipes that are buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground. Scroll down for more information.

An air source heat pump is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run, but it will less electrical energy than the heat it produces, giving it a coefficient performance factor usually between 2.5-4.5.

Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) use pipes that are buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home. A ground source heat pump circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of pipe, called a ground loop, which is buried in your garden. Heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid and then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. The ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, so the heat pump can be used throughout the year. The length of the ground loop depends on the size of your home and the amount of heat you need. Longer loops can draw more heat from the ground, but need more space to be buried in. If space is limited, a vertical borehole can be drilled instead.

ASHP

  • Takes heat from the air
  • Better for smaller properties
  • Less upfront cost
  • Less efficient
  • Less RHI payback

GSHP

  • Takes heat from the ground
  • Better for larger properties
  • More upfront cost
  • More efficient
  • More RHI payback
Testimonials
“My ASHP was installed in 2013 and I added 3kW Solar PV in 2015 and a Battery system in 2016. Throughout my dealings with Energy How I was always given accurate and reliable information which encouraged me to return for future investments into my property. Highly recommend.”
Mr & Mrs Birkby, Dumfries

“I had a ASHP, 4kW solar PV and battery system installed along with an electric car charging point for my vehicle. The consultant was helpful and knowledgable from start to finish and enabled me to understand the working of the system. Would highly recommend the company and the technology. ”
Mr & Mrs Thom, Ayrshire
