MCS Accredited Heat Pump Installers

MCS Accreditation is an industry-led quality assurance scheme for ground source heat pumps.

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) standards assure the GSHP installers are qualified and can demonstrate compliance to industry standards.

Being MCS certified demonstrates to customers that you are a reliable engineer with the ability to install approved GSHP products and specifications.

How does the ground source heat pump work?

Ground source heat pumps draw the heat from under the Earth surface to heat into buildings. Radiation from the sun heats the earth ground.

The ground then stores the heat and maintains, just two metres or so down, a temperature of around 10¬įC even throughout the winter.

A geothermal heating pump is a heat exchanger system or a GSHP air conditioning system for buildings that take advantage of the constancy of temperatures of the earth through the seasons, using a type of heat pump to transfer heat to or from the ground.

Ground source heating system heat pumps are up to four times more energy efficient than the most efficient oil and gas boilers.

A refrigeration cycle to effectively transform low-temperature energy into higher-temperature energy is the heat distribution system.

These devices move heat that already exists rather than producing emissions that contribute to global warming through producing carbon emissions caused by burning a fuel.

GSHP Costs

GSHPs costs are the most expensive of the heat pump systems to install, but cheaper running costs.

The cost of GSHP depends on the heat pump’s energy consumption efficiency, how much heat you need for your home or the manufacturer of the ground source heat pump.

Here are some factors that can affect the costs of your ground source heat pump:

GSHP Installation Costs

The average cost to install a 6-8 kW horizontal ground source heat pump system is £10,000 to £14,000.

The costs to install a larger 12kW horizontal ground source heat pump system on average is £15,000 to £19,000.

The GSHP installation costs can vary depending on the heat pump unit specification, location, vertical boreholes ground conditions, how much space the customer has and how much heat needs to be generated.

For a bespoke GSHP installation quote get in touch today and we can provide the best pricing tailored to your specific project.

GSHP Running Costs

The running cost of a ground source heat pump is around £750 per year to run.

The energy bill varies depending on sustainable energy absorbed, heat transfer demands and the size of the GSHP installed.

The running costs are far lower than a gas boiler and this is why the boiler upgrade scheme is very popular in Billingham.

When the ground source heat pump is used for space heating the running costs are reduced by 26%. A high-end GSHP product provides the lowest running cost of any space heating system.

GSHP Maintenance Costs

The maintenance costs of GSHPs are approximately £350 per year.

Preventative maintenance service should be conducted at least once a year to analyse the heat loss, amount of free energy to generate heat and temperature difference each annum it produces.

A well designed high-end ground source heat pump specification provides the lowest maintenance cost of any space heating system because all the horizontal systems or pipework vertical systems are underground.

Ground source heat pump Manufacturers

Here are the main ground source heat pump manufacturers we purchase from:

Customers sometimes ask which is the best ground source heat pump?

But to answer which manufacturer is the best we need to know more about your project and facility.

Do I need planning permission for heat pumps?

Ground source heat pumps are considered permitted development so no planning permission is required.

The installation of a ground source heat pump, air source heat pump or a water source heat pump on domestic premises does not need an application for planning permission.

If you live in a listed building or a conservation area you should contact your council to check on local planning permission requirements.

Ground Source Heat Pump Benefits

Heat pumps move energy from one place to another, similar to the way your fridge works. A ground source heating system transfers heat from where it is stored in the earth, into your home.

The benefits of the ground source heating system compared to the gas boiler central heating system is:

Ground to Water Heat Pump

A ground-to-water heat pump transfers heat from the ground to heat your radiators or underfloor heating.

The ground to water ground source heat pump can also provide a heat output to conventional heating systems like heating water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps and showers.

The ground to water heat pump unit has a great heat distribution system to provide domestic hot water and an underfloor heating system that can produce heat continually.

Ground to Air Heat Pump

A ground-to-air heat pump transfers transfer heat from the ground to heat conventional heating systems.

The ground to air heat pump uses a ground heat exchange loop to tap into this constantly replenished heat output store to heat homes and provide hot water.

The ground to air heat pump technology used is the opposite of that used in refrigerators.

Do ground source heat pumps work in winter?

The ground source heat pump extracts heat from the ground and works in winter because keeps a constant temperature all year round.

Under the Earths surface, the temperature will be warmer than the air in winter.

In cold winter months, ground source heat pumps are more efficient than air-source heat pumps when they are most needed.

GSHP Renewable Heat Incentive

RHI stands for Renewable Heat Incentive where the government are helping fund some money towards the installation costs of GSHPs.

To receive RHI domestic renewable heat incentive for a domestic building, each ground source heat pump system must be installed by an MCS certified installer.

The current renewable heat incentive finishes in March but the government are launching a new incentive in April 2022 which offers a £5,000 renewable heat incentive for domestic households.

The government’s new Clean Heat Grant will replace the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

We can assist you to make the most of these RHI funding grant schemes to take advantage of lower installation costs.

At SERVICE, we can assist you on the best options available in Durham. Make sure you contact us today for a number of great ground source heat pumps.

Clean Heat Grant (Boiler Upgrade Scheme)

The Clean Heat Grant will come into effect from April 2022 and is expected to replace the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) when it ends in March 2022.

The clean heat grant is the latest version of the boiler upgrade scheme the UK government have set up to help existing small domestic buildings transition to low carbon heating systems for heating their homes.

The Clean Heat Grant, now known as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, will function in a similar way to the Green Homes Grant.

Is GSHP better than ASHP?

ASHP can still be slightly more efficient when the ground or air temperature is the same.

GSHPs tend to be more efficient over the year in Durham but the installation costs of GSHPs are much higher.

It depends where you are in the country and the environmental conditions whether the extra cost savings outweigh the additional installation costs.

Are heat pumps good for underfloor heating?

Choosing to add a heat pump is an ideal choice for underfloor heating system.

A Ground Source Heat Pump (“GSHP”) is perfect because underfloor heating operates at a constant low temperature which can be perfect for GSHPs.

Heat pumps work more efficiently at lower temperatures which gives out heat output at lower temperatures over a longer period of time.

A GSHP can achieve a coefficient of performance of 4 if used in conjunction with a low-temperature delivery system like underfloor heating.

While a ground source heat pump does require a bit of electricity, it also relies on renewable energy which gives a better carbon footprint.

What does decarbonisation of heat mean?

The decarbonisation of heat refers to reducing the number of carbon emissions produced by heating systems.

The government is looking to switch households to low carbon heating systems in order to provide homes with ‘clean’ heat.

Energy efficiency with ground source heat pumps provides a greener carbon footprint than using fossil fuels.

The ground source heating operates cleaner carbon emissions than gas boilers as use the ground temperature to provide energy for air conditioning, domestic hot water and heat exchanger systems.

How Does The Heat Pump System Transfer Heat From Your Ground Into Your Building?

The heating system extracts heat from the earth ground temperature using a ground loop.

The continuous closed-loop systems are made of a special kind of piping that is buried in the ground.

When you install ground loops it allows water to circulate through these underground horizontal ground loops and absorbs the heat from the earth surrounding the pipe.

The closed loop system is connected to the water reaching your home or commercial building.

The ground loop heat pumps transfer the heat from the water into your central heating system for renewable heating.

How Are The Ground Loop Pipes Installed?

The ground loop pipes are installed in horizontal ground loops in vertical boreholes of up to 90m deep or burying them in trenches measuring up to 2m deep.

The method to install ground loops that will be used for your ground loop will depend on the amount of space available in your garden, but both methods are equally efficient.

How much electricity does a GSHP use?

A ground source heat pump can deliver 3 to 4 kilowatts (kW) of heat for every 1 kW of electricity it consumes.

Using freely available heat energy from the ground, it achieves higher efficiency than any other heating system.

Control Systems for Ground Source Heat Pumps

To achieve great results from ground source energy an efficient control system is very important.

If an industrial building or home employs ground source energy in conjunction with other forms of heating which may be employed for generating domestic hot water or as a supplementary heating system in very cold weather the controls are critical in the design and specification.

The standard controllers for a ground source heat pump are an adjustable controller and a room thermostat. If your ground source heat pump provides hot water as well as space heating it is likely to have a two-channel controller which will allow different temperatures and times to be programmed for each for effective heat distribution.

How long does the ground source heat pump take to install?

The installation of a ground source heat pump typically takes five to seven days for a professional installer to complete.

The ground level will depend on the installation times. The groundworks include digging trenches, slinky pipes (also known as slinkies) and straight pipes are a common form of a ground array.

Polyethylene is the most common pipe material used in ground source heat exchangers that are installed in the trenches dug out.

The plumbing and electrical wiring are quick to install once the underground horizontal system is installed.

How long does a Ground Source Heat Pump last?

A commercial ground source heat pump can be expected to last 25 years, which is 10 years longer than biomass boilers or gas boilers.

The ground heat exchanger, the more expensive part of a GSHP installation, should have a life of over 100 years.

The lifespan of a ground source heat pump largely depends on how well the heat pump system is maintained, climate, and location.

Heat Pump Safety Standards

Heat pumps should adhere to the following safety standards


What are Thermal Solar Panels?

Thermal solar panels are usually installed on the roof or in places that receive maximum sunlight. These panels contain a liquid that is then heated by solar energy. The liquid is circulated in the central heating system or water cylinder to provide heat to your property.

Thermal Solar Panels come in two different types, evacuated tube collectors and flat plat collectors. The choice you make depends on the available roof space, you can install either.

How much carbon dioxide is produced while using a heat pump?

Unlike burning oil, gas, LPG or biomass, a heat pump produces no carbon emissions on site, and no carbon emissions at all if a renewable source of electricity is used to power them.

Does a Ground Source Heat Pump system work all year round?

Ground source heat pump systems perform down to air temperatures of -10¬įc which means that they are more than suitable for installations within the UK. Hot water and Heating can be provided 365 days a year. In properties with larger heat demand, boilers or multi fuel burners can be successfully integrated.

Can a heat pump provide all my heat and hot water?

Yes. A properly designed system would deliver all the water and heat your home requires.

What are the Noise implications of a heat pump?

Heat pump units supplied typically have the same sound levels as a domestic refrigerator.


We prefer to work in conjunction with architects and M&E consultants from the earliest stage to ensure that there is a clear understanding of how we can help to deliver a sustainable building with a high carbon offset.

Ground source heat pumps or an air source heat pump are amongst the most energy-efficient technologies for providing HVAC and water heating to buildings in the United Kingdom.

A ground source heat pump uses far less energy than can be achieved by burning fuel in a boiler/furnace or by the use of resistive electric heaters.

Ground source heat pumps are ideal for new homes or large-scale renovations using horizontal loops where land is available, or vertical probes drilled.
