    Using the ground as an energy source

    Read more about heating and cooling solutions which use solar energy in the land and in bodies of water, as well as geothermal heat from deeper underground.

  • Air Source Solutions

    Using the ambient air as an energy source

    Take advantage of differences in air temperature from inside to outside, to capture energy for heating or cooling.

  • Underfloor Heating Solutions

    Using space-saving underfloor systems

    These can be the most efficient way of distributing heat, from a heat pump, throughout a property.

  • Solar Panel Solutions

    Capturing the energy of the sun

    Practical and cost-effective PV solar panel installations can provide energy for you to use and contribute to the electricity costs of running your heat pump.

    HOW GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS WORK

     
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps take advantage of the relatively stable temperatures of an area of ground or body of water near to your property. The ground is warmed by several sources including the sun, along with natural geothermal gradients and ground water movement amongst other influences. GSHPs can therefore be deployed even in the very coldest areas of the UK.

  • HEAT PUMP SOLUTIONS

  •  

    Horizontal Ground Source Heat Pumps

    Energy is gathered from the top layers of the ground, which has residual warmth from the sun.

    GOOD FOR:

    Larger gardens or areas of land

    Any climate but less suited to very cold areas

    Comfort cooling extracted directly from the ground loop (passive cooling)

    A reversible heat pump can provide active cooling as well as heating

  •  

    Borehole Ground Source Heat Pumps

    Bore holes allow you to install a GSHP system in properties with a small amount of land.

    GOOD FOR:

    Smaller gardens or areas of land

    Any climate

    Comfort cooling extracted directly from the ground loop (passive cooling)

    A reversible heat pump can provide active cooling as well as heating

  •  

    Lake/Pond Ground Source Heat Pumps

    Like land, large bodies of water retain heat which is replenished from the bottom of the lake and also from the sun.

    GOOD FOR:

    Lakeside properties

    Any climate

    Potential for comfort cooling directly from the lake (passive cooling) depending on lake temperatures and location.

    A reversible heat pump can provide active cooling as well as heating

  •  

    Air Source
    Heat Pumps

    Energy in the outside air can be extracted using a heat pump and transferred into a property via a circuit heated by a compressor system. UK air temperatures are suitable for the use of ASHPs, particularly further south.

    GOOD FOR:

    Warmer regions, for efficiency and effectiveness

    Small to medium sized properties generally

    Quarry case study: lake source was better than trench source

    A disused quarry was assessed for trench based energy collection but we recommended water source collection from the man-made lake, resulting in higher cost savings and greater efficiency.

    Replacing a poorly designed system and saving 75% running costs

    An old, poorly performing, domestic ground source heating system with multiple issues was investigated and a new one designed and installed, reducing running costs by 75%.

  •  

    Redesigning the way water was handled in a sensitive central London location

    An open loop ground source system was underperforming until Hex Energy designed a unique solution to enable water to be taken out from - and replaced into – the same well, fully supported by the Environment Agency.

  • OUR CUSTOMERS

  • Now that we have successfully completed the installation of both the ground source heat pump and underfloor heat, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all at HexEnergy for providing a professional service and excellent product knowledge base. The installation team really excelled in their commitment to the job in hand, At times offering their expertise in guidance and actually appearing to enjoy and take pride in what they did. I would have no issues recommending HexEnergy Ltd in any project one would wish to undertake, I am confident that the continuing success of the company is well and truly assured.
