Have you been considering an alternative to traditional heating systems for your business? A commercial heat pump may be the solution. An environmentally friendly, cost-effective and low maintenance option; heat pumps offer an attractive investment for businesses, while also helping to reduce your carbon footprint. As we strive to take steps to decarbonize our economies, now is a better time than ever to make the switch to a renewable heating system.
Low carbon technology: Heat pumps use electricity, combined with heat from the ground… and that’s all. No oil, no gas, and less harmful emissions.
Very efficient: Per one unit of electricity, a heat pump produces four units of heat, making it one of the most efficient sources for heating and hot water for your business.
Year-round heat: Heat pumps, unlike solar thermal, operate to full capacity in all weathers; not just when the sun is shining.
Can be combined with Solar: To further reduce your emissions and lower your running costs, heat pumps can be combined with a solar PV system, lowering your reliance on the grid and improving your self-sufficiency.
ROI: When combined with a solar PV system, businesses can save on their bills as you can use the electricity you gain from your solar PV to generate power for your heat pumps.
Who we work with
How do ground source heat pumps work?
Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) work by extracting heat from the ground. A large loop of pipe, known as a ground loop, is placed in the ground or through a body of water – the pump then circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around this loop. Heat from the ground or water is absorbed into the fluid and then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. The ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, this means that unlike some forms of renewable energy, heat pumps can be used throughout the year.
How do air source heat pumps work?
An air source heat pump (ASHP) uses the same technology as your kitchen fridge to move heat from one place to another. An ASHP uses the temperature of the air circulating outside to warm a liquid refrigerant. The heat pump turns the refrigerant into a gas, compresses it and then condenses back into a liquid again which generates heat energy, and the cycle starts again. ASHPs don’t generate as much heat as GSHPs, but they are a great option for small offices or farms.

Why choose Geo Green Power?
With over five years of experience installing renewable heating systems Geo Green Power have completed hundreds of heat pump installs all over the country. Our fully trained engineers work across all our renewable system installs, so are extremely knowledgeable and skilled across the board.
We deal with commercial heat pump installs of all shapes and sizes. For example, we completed an install for our clients at RT Farms, which consisted of sixteen 60kW systems – all of which were installed and commissioned to the highest standard.
RT Farms: 960kW GSHP, saves 375 tonnes of CO2 per annum
In 2017 RT Farms were offered 1.5MW export connection, so we used our experience of solar PV and ground source heat pump technology to create a suitable scheme for the business. We combined solar power and the UK’s largest ground source heat pump at the time (960kW).
Our installation has enabled the 2,500 acre farm business to use their 1.5MW connection profitably, transfer even more of the farm’s operation onto renewable energy and completely remove the need for LPG which was previously used for heating and drying on the farm.
The heat pump system will earn in excess of £115,000 every year due to it qualifying for the Renewable Heat Incentive.
