Air Source Heating
An air source heat pump is placed outside your property where fans inside the unit extract heat from the air in much the same way that heat is extracted from the air inside a fridge or freezer.
This heat is then channelled into your heating system either through your plumbing where it can be used to heat water for radiators, underfloor heating systems, etc... or by being redistributed by fans to heat the air in your home or commercial property.
Ground Source Heating
Geothermal heating makes use of a geothermal heat pump or a ground source heat pump (GSHP). The geothermal pump is placed in the ground and uses the earth as a heat source in the winter and as a heat sink in the summer. A geothermal heat pump can be very easily combined with a heating system that makes use of solar panels in order to create a geosolar heat system which increases overall efficiency of your heating system, reducing your heating bills.
Energy savings can be up to a 75% reduction on your current heating bill with the use of a air or ground source heat pump system.
Both air and ground heat source pumps are able to extract heat when the outside temperature is as low as -15°C to -20°C (depending on the brand and model selected) so can be used 365 days per year in Ireland.
Compact - both air and ground source heat pumps are small and don't require a large storage area.
Quiet - typically the unit will not make any more noise than an average fridge or freezer.
No additional fuel is required to power an air or ground heat source pump as they are electric.
