Groundwater Heat Pumps

Geothermal Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps & Ground Heat Pumps are a central heating and/or cooling system that pumps heat to or from the ground. They are also known as geoexchange, earth-coupled & earth energy systems. Ground Source Heat Pumps are one of the most energy efficient technologies for providing Heating, Ventilation Air Conditioning & water heating.

Bore Water Heat Pump

Geothermal Bore Water Heat Pump Open Loop

In open loop systems, which are also known as Groundwater Heat Pumps, bore water is utilised in the process. Over time limescale, salts, minerals & iron bacteria bio-films can build-up on heat transfer surfaces dramatically reducing the heat transfer efficiency.

WMA 2006 Bore Cleaning Compound can be used to remove limescale, salts, minerals & iron bacteria bio-films from the pipework & heat transfer surfaces.  

They use the earth as a heat source during the winter or a heat sink during the summer.
