Domestic Heat Pumps
One of the UK’s leading providers of renewable energy technology, Geo Green Power has extensive experience in working with domestic heat pumps. Whether you are completely renovating a large house, building a property from scratch or looking into renewable energy solutions for flats or residential blocks, we can offer high quality ground source heat pumps.
Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) have a range of benefits that can make them a perfect choice across a range of scenarios in residential properties. Offering excellent savings on fuel costs and even a potential source of income through the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme, domestic pumps not only pay for themselves but can be an excellent investment opportunity for your property.
GSHPs draw heat from the ground. A large loop of pipe is buried beneath your property, and liquid is then circulated in the pipe to extract heat. There is a choice between a vertical and horizontal pipe. Vertical pipes are typically more expensive as they have to be buried deeper, but also require less space. Horizontal pipes are ideal for larger properties.

Considerations when installing a domestic GSHP
It is important to consider with a GSHP is the right choice for your property. This can be a very valuable form of renewable energy – however it is not necessarily suitable for every home or residential development. Here are some things to consider:
- The type of GSHP makes an important difference – choosing a GSHP that is the right size and type is extremely important for the potential profitability of the installation. It is a good idea to work with experienced renewable energy providers who can offer expert insight and guidance.
- Do you have the space? – it may be the case that you are thinking of having one type of system installed but do not have the space for it. Vertical systems are generally best if you have limited space available, however, the type of bedrock beneath your property can restrict how far down you can bury your pipes.
- Setup can be expensive – while there are very few ongoing costs related to GSHPs, as they require very little maintenance, the initial cost can be high. However, the cost will be paid off with energy savings over time.
How much money can you save a GSHP?
Ground source heat pumps help you to save money in a variety of different ways. Firstly, they will draw heat from the ground which means that your property will have lower energy bills – this is especially true for those properties replacing electric or oil heating. However, you will also receive Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (RHI) payments which pays money for heat generated.
The exact amount you can save can vary enormously depending on the size of your property or development. Typical properties with an existing gas system could see fuel bill savings alone of around £660 per year, while those with an electric system could see savings in excess of £1,000 per year. This figure doesn’t take into account additional RHI payments you will receive.
Frequently asked questions
Is a vertical or horizontal GSHP suitable for my property?
This largely depends on the space you have available. If your property sits on a large site, you may have enough space to bury a large loop horizontally – this is typically cheaper and faster. Vertical GSHPs are more expensive but can allow the system to be installed on properties of almost any size.
Are there government grants available?
The RHI is designed to function in the same way as a grant for property owners or developers interested in investing in GSHPs. The RHI pays cash payments to owners over seven years. These payments can contribute a large amount of the initial outlay required to pay for the system.
Are there any running costs?
There are generally low on-going running costs related to GSHPs. Very little maintenance of the system is required. We work with excellent manufacturers whose systems have an excellent track record and are built to last.

Thank you for all your hard work. Everything was completed efficiently and professionally and I’m now saving and making cash thanks to my solar PV system.
