Ground source heat pumps have been shown to provide significant carbon savings compared to conventional forms of space and water heating. Ideal's ground source heat pumps have been developed specifically with the UK housing market in mind and provide the perfect solution for reducing the carbon footprint of both new built and existing dwellings.
Ideal ground source heat pumps are maintenance free and can heat a home and at the same time are designed to supply domestic hot water at 65°C, without the need for electric heating back up.
Along with saving energy and preserving fossil fuels, the use of ground source also provides the perfect water and heating solution for new build and existing homes that that are off gas-grids. The heating and hot water are managed by a standard central heating programmer with a room thermostat controlling the heat output in exactly the same way as with a conventional boiler. The pumps have higher efficiency levels because the ground provides a constant source of energy.
Field trials show that code level four of CfSH can be achieved with Ideal's ground source heat pump with no change to the basic structure of the building.
