Ground source heat pump

Ground source heat pump

Ground source heat pumps power our chilled beams, harnessing the elements to heat or cool the water that flows through the chilled beams. Ground source heat pumps are exceptionally efficient, reducing both cost and impact on the environment. They generate very little noise and should last for many years with minimal servicing.
