Heat pumps are defined as devices that transfers heat from natural surroundings to properties by reversing the natural flow of heat so that it flows from a lower to a higher temperature. Saltire offer different heat pump solutions enabling you to capture the stored energy and use it to heat your home.
To install a ground source heat pump you need adequate outside space for the pipes which are typically buried in trenches.
As fossil fuel prices continue to rise and their emissions threaten the environment, many people in the UK are looking for alternative sources of energy that can both save them money and reduce their impact on the environment. Most people now realise that we cannot sustain current levels of pollution through consumption of fossil fuels (which, as well as being damaging, are in finite supply and depleting evermore rapidly). Choosing a heat pump solution for your home means you are choosing to take responsibility for your own planet's future.
By harnessing the energy stored in the ground, you are tapping in to a source of free energy whilst keeping your home warm and providing yourself and family with a desirable level of comfort. It works just like a refrigerator, but in reverse – moving energy from one place to another. The savings that a heat pump will provide depend on many factors and due to each system being unique, you are best speaking to experts such us at the good people here at Saltire about whether and which heat pump systems can be advantageous to you.
