Ground source heat pumps work well with all heating systems including radiators and underfloor, and provide hot water to 65°C, as well as cooling capabilities.
To get the most efficient operation from a ground source heat pump it is important that the outlet temperature is kept as low as possible, this lends itself to underfloor heating distribution systems. When used in conjunction with these, efficiencies of up to 400% can be achieved.
Radiator systems can be used however due to the higher temperatures required the efficiency will drop to approximately 300%. Radiator systems would also need to be oversized as the maximum continuous temperature from a heat pump is generally around 50°C.Read more

Ground source heat pumps can operate in reverse-cycle mode providing chilled water to cool a building. This operates much in the same way to a chiller.Read more
We now have a beautiful home which is comfortably warm throughout the cooler or cold months, but is able to retain its cool interior at the height of the summer. Hot water is constant and plentiful. It almost feels magical to be able to flick a shower on each morning without having to rely on gas or electric central heating boilers. The system is intuitive to use and easy to adjust seasonally if required.
