Ground Source Heat Pump Boreholes
It is possible to use a Ground Source heat pump to harness environmentally friendly and more importantly renewable energy that is stored in the ground. Buy having a GSHP system you are able to provide an energy efficient heating system suitable for many building types.
How do they work?
A borehole will be drilled typically to at least 100m but varies on each project specification. Once the borehole has been drilled to the required depth a 32 or 40mm loop is lowered into the borehole and sealed with a geothermal grout. The loop is then connected via a manifold to the Heat pump, water with anti freeze is then circulated by the pump through the loop absorbing energy from the ground. The energy that has been absorbed by the loop is then converted into heat by the pump.
Tor Drilling work closely with manufacturers of heat pumps and geothermal loops and have a vast range of equipment to drill open or closed borehole loops dependant on each individual specification. Please contact us today if you have any questions or would like to discuss a project.
