    Ground Source Heat Pump

    Have any of you lot looked into Ground Source Heat Pumps yet? Have any of you actually had one put in? Are they any good?
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

            This has been around for some time hasnt it? Remember watching some DIY program early last year where a guy had rebuilt an old Irish church out in the middle of no where and used this tech to heat his house (I guess a couple downsides would be the requirement for a large area of open land AND once in you cant use the land for anything that requires digging ).

              Isn't this one of those items that you don't actually recover the costs if you replace your existing system but may be advantageous if you were installing something from scratch (i.e. a new home)?

              Wasn't this like the argument against replacing your old boiler system with a new condensing boiler?

              Mind you, energy prices have increased since I read the articles 2 years ago so may be a little more viable.
              If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.

                We have a pretty big grarden which I would hope would be big enough. The back garden is at least twice the size of the house.

                  How big is the land you have? Those Irish geezers required acres of land before they could even think of using those land heaters.
