In many buildings Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) provide an efficient solution for heating and cooling. Using low temperature latent heat which exists naturally below ground, GSHPs provide solutions by harvesting and transferring this energy for the benefit of the built environment.

It is important to understand the feasibility of GSHP prior to designing a system.

This guidance note has been written to help inform those interested in improving the sustainability and efficiency of heating and cooling systems of a building.

WSP Environment & Energy’s hydrogeological consultants provide a range of professional advice relating to GSHPs including:

  • The identification of potential energy stored in the earths natural resource
  • Assessment of the suitability of the ground in relation to the potential design and
    effectiveness of a GSHP
  • Recommendations based on the above information regarding the best system
    design for given ground conditions.
