Heat Pumps – Which Technology to choose…..

Ground Source Heat Pumps


Ground Source or ‘Geothermal’ Heat Pumps – for the lowest running costs, no matter what the weather does..

These heat pumps take heat from continuous loops of plastic pipe (containing antifreeze mixture) usually buried as a ‘collector’ array in the garden, or from U-bend shaped probes in deep boreholes. The collector may also be placed in a lake or river too.

This technology is popular for new build and offers the lowest possible running costs with all of the buildings energy needs covered, even in the most extreme weather.

All Nibe heat pumps are extremely quiet and are ideally fitted indoors in a utility room. They may also be located almost anywhere else of course such as a basement or plantroom, but this ability to be inside saves both on running costs and installation unlike many of our competitors where the equipment is only suited to be remotely located in a garage etc. because of noise or even appearance. A signature look of Nibe’s design has been that you would often mistake their heating equipment for domestic appliances!
