What to consider before installing ground source heat pump?

When installing ground source heat pump, it is important that the dimensions are correct, and that why you need a help of an experienced installer. It pays to be careful and choose the geothermal heat pump that best suits your needs and house.

The installer will help you find the best possible location for the device. Regardless of the type of heat pump involved, the unit is roughly the same size. Then you need some additional space for the installation of pipes, ducts, electricity and any accessories. Also remember to leave a free space in front of the heat pump and some extra space between the wall or other machines and interior details.

If you have not had geothermal heat in the house before, you need to drill or dig, and the costs for that are governed by the nature of the plot. You also need to have a water-borne heating system and electricity to run the geothermal heat pump.

When it comes to drilling, it is important that it is carried out by a professional drilling contractor. The depth of the borehole is determined by the level of the bedrock and the power requirements the hole must meet and must therefore not be undermentioned. The drilling usually takes a few days and in the vast majority of cases there will be no impact on the garden.
