Ground Source Heat Pumps Explained:
Each apartment at Iceworks is designed to be Eco friendly and has the benefit of a Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) to provide hot water and heating. A Ground Source Heat Pump collects solar energy stored as heat in the ground and upgrades it via the heat pump to a temperature hot enough to provide energy for hot water and underfloor heating. This is an ultra-efficient and reliable technology producing extremely low CO2 emissions and the lowest energy bills; lower than air source heat pumps, oil and LPG. Each pump has a life expectancy of 20-25 years with minimal servicing and maintenance costs.
