Ground Source Heat Pumps

How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work

Ground source heat humps work by circulating a mixture of water and antifreeze through a ground loop buried one metre deep into the ground. Energy from the ground is absorbed into the liquid and is then pumped through a heat exchanger in the heat pump.

This low grade heat passes through a compressor and is concentrated into a higher temperature sufficient to heat water for household heating and hot water supplies. The liquid in the ground loop, now cooler, circulates back into the ground and the process is repeated, providing a continuous collection of energy and constant heat as required.

HexEnergy Ltd is the leading installer of Ground Source Heat Pumps in Central UK

The Managing Director of HexEnergy Ltd is also a founder member of the Ground Source Heat Pumps Association. We remain at the forefront of a rapidly expanding market for Ground source heat pumps partly due to the increasing economic attractiveness in the face of price rises in conventional fuels, but also because of regulatory drivers such as 'Part L' of the Building Regulations. Ground Source Heat Pump Heating & Hot Water Systems.

With escalating fuel costs and diminishing resources, ground source heat pumps are able to provide cost effective alternative systems with negligible maintenance. Ground source heat pumps are one of the fastest growing applications of renewable and sustainable energy in the world. Our complete heat pump product range includes the finest manufacturers in this industry including:

Ground source heat pumps can be designed and incorporated into a project in a variety of ways dependant on geographical, topographical and geological conditions to collect heat from horizontal or vertical loop systems, including sufficiently sized bodies of water. Our ground source heat pumps are accredited under government backed grant schemes and the Company is accredited to the Ground Source Heat Pump Association.

Thermal Regions in the Ground

The ground offers an excellent resource to incorporate ground source heat pumps into systems for heating and cooling of buildings. The ground temperature in the UK can generally be defined into three distinct regions. Firstly, there is a variable temperature region for the first 4m of ground, which will vary depending on the season.

The next 100m or so is constant throughout the year due to the large thermal mass of the ground and from around 100m and below the ground temperature warms due to radioactive decay effects. Ground source heat pumps are usually designed to use the thermal resource found in the first two regions.
