    This is a great video to show the installation process, and how involved it
    can be.

    I love Rogers rant!

    Sounds ideal if you want to bore your dinner guests but if you just want to
    heat your home i would advise gas.

    @exchangeisno Hi, thanks for your query. You’re right, initial outlay for a
    ground source heat pump can be between £7,000-£13,000 (source: Energy
    Saving Trust) as it can involve substantial groundwork. No ongoing
    maintenance is generally required though. A possible alternative is an air
    to water heat pump (which does not require any groundwork) – there’s a
    customer testimonial on our channel. If you’d like further info our
    Technical Support dept can help – 0844 892 3366. Hope this helps.

    there is no such thing as global warming

    Can you use this system to cool the house in summer by transfering the heat
    from the house back to the ground? Basically reversing the system.

  7. Worcester, Bosch Group says:

    @bobsy49 Thanks for your query. The Greenstore ground source heat pump is
    for heating only. We do offer an air to air heat pump which offers both
    heating and cooling (there is a testimonial on our channel), however,
    rather than being the sole source of heating for the home it should be used
    as supplementary heating/cooling for conservatories or large lounges up to
    100m2.

    is the cost of installing the pump lower if it is installed in a new build?
    as there will already be groundwork getting done/could be designed into the
    plans

  9. Worcester, Bosch Group says:

    @stonedtothaabone Thanks for your query.Costs for ground source heat pump
    installations vary because each installation is unique. GSHPs are ideal for
    new-builds and taking groundwork into consideration as part of the project
    could be beneficial. We recommend speaking to our Technical Support team
    (0844 892 3366 or [email protected]) or Worcester Accredited
    Installers (see the ‘Find an Installer’ search on our website
    worcester-bosch.co.uk) for more advice. Best regards, Worcester.

    That is the most boring comment I’ve ever read. Gas bores, honestly!

  11. 74VDC says:

    I like hi-eff gas…gas is great…it’s what I use. Question is…what do
    you do if/when gas prices skyrocket? Then there is still remaining the
    question of what to do about A/C? Here in the US gas is cheap right now,
    but expected to go up as demand for this cheap fuel rises.

  12. 74VDC says:

    Same here in the USA…gas is dirt cheap….for now. Thing is gas isn’t
    available in very rural areas and it is there that I see the huge advantage
    of ground source heat pumps. I suspect the same is true in the UK. Is nat
    gas not readily available in Sweden. You Swedes always seem to do
    everything with efficient machines…whatever it is. I admire you guys for
    that.

    what is the main advantage of the reverse-retuen config in a closed loop
    water source

  14. Gary Henderson says:

    The reason behind a reverse return piping configuration is to equally
    balance all loops – first in last out theory – by balancing loops you don’t
    have flow in just a few of your loops it balances all – keep all lengths
    within 5% of each other

  15. Simon Masters says:

    GSHP 1:3 or 1:4? In my view the same area and budget, if devoted to PV,
    would earn FiT all year round and 20 years tax free is better than seven.
    RHI has a kind of biblical sense of foreboding perhaps?

  16. oldricky says:

    Heat Pumps still rely on “THE BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS”! Where do you THINK
    the electricity comes from to operate the compressors and pumps? It comes
    from coal fired and gas fired electrical generation plants. Plus you loose
    a high percentage of electrical transmission line losses and transformer
    losses. So it all depends WHERE you burn the fossil fuel – at the
    electrical generating plant or your high efficiency gas fired furnace and,
    of course, costs considered.

  17. Robert Carter says:

    Great video but note flow and return pipes should not be insulated, they
    form part of the collector system and there is always a net heat flow into
    both pipes which are both colder than the surrounding ground at 1m depth.
    In a system designed to MCS standards the return must always be above
    freezing and the flow is just a few degrees below that. Given the thermal
    conductivity of PE100 used for the pipe material the flow pipe surface
    temperature will also be above or around freezing so there is no danger of
    freezing in a properly designed system.

    no joking that would cost a fortune…
