Ground Source Heat

 

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) and Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) use the same principles to provide space heating, the only difference being the environment from where the low-grade heat is sourced.  However, as a GSHP requires a more complicated infrastructure to perform its task.

The Ground Source Heat Pump Association is the main trade association representing the industry in the UK (http://www.gshp.org.uk/index.php).
