Ground source heating
With traditional energy sources in decline and the cost of heating homes continuing to rise, every effort is being made to develop innovative and sustainable natural energy solutions that do not rely on the ever-depleting supply of fossil fuels.
One such solution is ground-source heat pump (GSHP) technology, an effective way of using the natural energy stored in the earth to heat homes: buried collectors extract heat and transfer it seamlessly to a property’s heating system, thereby replacing the need for a boiler.
RSK company Ground Heat specialises in designing, installing and maintaining GSHP systems; the company manages every phase of the process.
Experts in the heating industry
Ground Heat was established in 2006 and provides a UK-wide design and installation service from its base in Appley Bridge, Lancashire. The company has more 35 years of experience in the heating industry and has been installing heat pumps for over 13 years, which makes it one of the market leaders in the industry.
As a company of heating engineers, we are ideally positioned within the marketplace to integrate into the renewables sector. Our GHSP systems can be used for radiators and for underfloor and pool heating.
Certified to safeguard quality
Investing in new technology can be daunting, but we are here to reassure customers and clients through every step of the process. We are fully accredited with MCS, the Microgeneration Certification Scheme for heat pump and solar photovoltaic technologies, which is acknowledged nationally to safeguard the quality of renewable energy installers. Part of this certification is a statutory annual inspection that ensures that we have the highest standards of installation and customer service.
Ground Heat is also part of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC), which is supported by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. This means we must adhere to an agreement to deliver outstanding service.
An end-to-end bespoke design and installation and after-care service
At the outset of a consultation, we calculate a building’s unique energy requirements and determine the architectural constraints and viability of the project. After a site survey, we recommend an appropriate design, which our engineers then install. Our installation work is to the highest standards to ensure high quality. We also follow up on an installation to guarantee that everything is in good working order.
We work closely with several well-known manufacturers of heat pumps that offer seven-year guarantees on their units. We offer a two-year, insurance-backed guarantee on our workmanship through the RECC. After a guarantee expires, we can then offer a low-cost maintenance agreement for an annual service.
Trusted guidance and maximum efficiency
As a pioneering business, Ground Heat works hard to deliver a personalised service consisting of the highest quality workmanship, skills and professionalism.
Every measure is taken to give maximum efficiency at the best price. We strive to work with each client to ensure that their design fulfils their bespoke needs, thereby enabling them to heat their properties sustainably, lower their carbon emissions and heating bills, and even receive an income through the government’s Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI).
