Case Study Details

A Ground Source Heat Pump system for a detached house in Surrey

Better Planet was approached by the owner of this property in Surrey who was interested in replacing a boiler with a heat pump system. The client was looking to reduce running costs, but there was also a strong element of environmental motivation.

As there was not enough space for horizontal ground loop and the borehole option was deemed too expensive, an air source solution was selected
