Why Ground Source Heating and Cooling Systems?

 

Building legislation currently requires heating and cooling systems to deliver a set percentage of renewable energy and savings on CO2 emissions and trends are heading towards carbon neutral technologies. Ground Source Heating and Cooling Systems are fully compliant with renewable heat incentive status. They save energy effectively, reduce carbon emissions and provide energy independence.

The Government have recognised the value of Ground Source Heating and Cooling Systems as an ideal alternative to current methods and Geothermal Systems sit alongside wind turbine, photo-voltaic and CHP solutions in the drive to save energy effectively.

Ground Source Energy Systems Provide The Ideal Alternative Energy Solution

 

The Ground Source Consult team are experts in the analysis of feasibility, design and installation management of all types of ground source energy. We work with architects, surveyors, the construction and drilling teams and the management to optimise the ground source design and build at all stages from initial plans through to plant room operation.
