Property configurations & options

Ground source heat pumps offer flexible and scalable solutions, extracting the free energy stored underground or in lakes and rivers.  Where properties are close together they can share a ‘ground array’ and ‘heat source’, alternatively single properties can simply have their own.

Ground array options

Heat your pool, too!

Does your site have communal washing facilities? Perhaps a swimming pool or a hot tub? A ground source heat pump can provide guaranteed, affordable and sustainable hot water for these, too!

Added benefits

Ground source heat pumps are ideal for holiday accommodation and parks, but if you are still yet to be convinced, let us point out some key added benefits:

No permanent damage to the ground

Ground source heat pumps are buried in the ground or submerged in water, your guests won’t know they are there – but they will last there for 100 years!

No disruption

Ground source heat pumps take just 2-3 days to be installed, and can be staggered to suit you.

No income uncertainties

The amount you make through the RHI is based on actual metered heat produced by your ground source heat pump, so if your site requires heat and hot water all year round, you can be sure of a guaranteed RHI income all year round.

The average ground source heat pump cost per holiday property is £10,000 – £13,000. You will get this back typically in just 8 – 10 years through a guaranteed 20 year non domestic RHI income for the lifetime of the heat pump.

No saving uncertainties

Ground source heat pumps operate all year round and are meticulously sized to deliver all of your heat and hot water needs, so you can be sure of the system’s performance 365 days a year.

Living where we do, surrounded by rolling Welsh hills, we are very conscious that our luxury holiday accommodation should strive towards being eco-friendly. To do this we decided we wanted a heating system that paired technological innovation with natural resources. It is also very important for our guests to be comfortable during their stay with access to a constant supply of heating and hot water.
