What Is a Commercial Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP)?

A commercial GSHP is a device that extracts thermal energy from the ground and uses it to provide heating and/or cooling for a commercial building. The earth’s surface absorbs approximately half of the sun’s energy that reaches it, making it a renewable and sustainable resource for extracting thermal energy.

This thermal energy can be used for a number of different applications, including space heating via a heat pump, domestic hot water, and industrial processes.

How Does a Commercial GSHP Work?

All heat pumps work using the relationship between pressure and temperature. When the pressure of a gas increases, the temperature increases with it. Similarly, when the pressure of a gas decreases, so does the temperature.

Ground source heat pumps rely on a system of pipes filled with a fluid. These pipes run underground to absorb geothermal energy from the earth or bodies of water. Just below the ground’s surface, temperatures sit at around 10°-15°C all year. This warmth gets transported via the fluid into the pump itself.

Within the GSHP unit, a compressor then increases or decreases the pressure on the fluid, raising or lowering its temperature. This provides clean and efficient heating or cooling for commercial buildings throughout the year. 

Benefits of Commercial GSHPs

There are numerous benefits that commercial GSHPs can provide, including:

  • Reduced energy costs: Many of these systems provide around a 50% reduction on your energy costs when compared to fossil fuel systems. Annual maintenance is recommended. 
  • Reduced carbon emissions: Not burning fossil fuels for your energy is far better for the environment. This can also show your business’s commitment to the environment.
  • Increased comfort levels: Being able to heat and cool the office or other commercial premises using a ground source heat pump offers a more comfortable environment. 
  • Less disruption: Most of the work required to install this type of heating system takes place outdoors or away from where your staff and customers may be. This means there will be less disruption to your business compared to other types of heating and cooling systems.
  • Government grants: By making the switch to cleaner, greener energy, the government is offering a £7,500 grant for installing a commercial GS heat pump.

Where Can I Install a Commercial GSHP?

You can install a commercial ground source heat pump in any commercial building, whether it’s an office, retail premises, or even a factory.

A commercial plant room ground source heat pump can even assist in factories or businesses where you need high levels of heat for your processes.

To fulfil the heating and cooling needs of a large building, a cascaded GSHP system may be ideal. This involves multiple connected heat pumps which can provide increased heating capacity for big spaces like warehouses.

Commercial Ground Source Heat Pumps FAQs

Commercial GSHPs are far more efficient than other heating methods as they produce more heat than the electricity they use. This is known as the Coefficient of Performance (CoP).

Ground source heat pumps need a lot more space than air source heat pumps, but it varies depending on your needs. The boreholes themselves are often only around 20 cm in diameter.

Yes, GSHPs are commonly integrated with underfloor systems but they can also be used with traditional radiators. A combination of both is also possible.

Ground source heat pump systems can work all year round and are much more efficient and effective in the winter than was once the case.

Air source heat pumps are generally cheaper to install but ground source heat pumps are more efficient year-round. Overall, the savings you gain from switching to either system will likely balance out over time. 

The average lifespan of a well-maintained commercial GSHP is around 25 years. The ground heat exchanger will likely last 100 years.

Planning permission is generally not required to install a commercial GSHP as it is an invisible system which makes very little noise. 

The cost of commercial GSHP installation typically ranges from around £2,000 to £50,000. There are many factors which can affect the price, such as the size of the system, the make and model, and installation complexity, among others.

Commercial GSHP maintenance costs vary depending on the type of system you have in place. A Planned Preventative Maintenance contract is our most popular and best-value pricing model with contracts starting from as little as £250+VAT per annum.
