With soaring fuel bills homeowners are increasingly looking for ways to heat their homes for less.
Maybe it’s time to look at more progressive ways to obtain heat and reduce energy consumption in your home whether you live in Edinburgh or elsewhere in Scotland. Your answer could be a ground source heat pump supplied by EKCO.
What exactly is a ground source heat pump?
A ground source heat pump uses either soil (pipes buried in the garden) or groundwater (borehole) to extract heat from the ground which can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating and all your domestic hot water needs.
How does it work?
Pipes will be installed in your garden. These pipes pick up the heat from the ground and use it to fuel all heating/domestic hot water needs. Because the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature, the ground source heat pump is suitable to be used throughout the year.
Can I save money with a Ground Source Heat Pump?
According to the Energy Saving Trust, a ground source heat pump system performing at 300% could save as much as £330 a year compared to a solid system; £130 a year compared to a gas system; £310 a year compared to an oil system; and £310 a year compared to an electricity system.
