GSHP in Farms

Political and environmental pressures, the supply, cost, and phase out of fossil fuels, and complex biomass compliance requirements, have cemented the role of alternative renewable heating systems in future-proofing agricultural businesses.

For many, the case is strengthened even further by the wealth of diversification opportunities ground source heat pumps can bring.

Ground source is particularly suited to agricultural businesses with readily available land or water sources for ground arrays, whilst the land can still be used for crops or grazing. Plus, ground source heat pump systems can also be easily integrated with existing renewable technologies such as hydro, Solar PV and wind turbines, allowing business owners to direct any surplus heat into new business opportunities.

Multiple Buildings

If you have multiple dwellings, such as barn conversions used for holiday accommodation, an elegant and lower cost solution is to install a ground source heat pump inside each unit, and link these to a communal shared ground loop array. And they don’t require planning permission either.
