Heat pump systems transfer anywhere between 3 and 4 times more energy to your home than it uses to extract it, generating a surplus in energy. This makes a heat pump the perfect solution for a sustainable and renewable way to heat your home and hot water. With options available for all usages and sizes of property, explore your money options.

North Devon Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) Installation, Maintenance & Servicing

As MCS certified renewable heating specialists with extensive experience, we are dedicated to delivering top-notch ground source heat pump solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of your property. Our range of services includes expert installation, maintenance, and repair of ground source heat pump systems. We work on residential and commercial properties throughout North Devon, including Barnstaple, Bideford, Crediton, and the surrounding regions.

They are best-suited as a solution for medium to large properties, and those without ease of access to main utilities. Being primarily underground, ground source heat pumps are virtually invisible once fitted, silent in operation and very cost effective to run.

Our heat pump solutions also work in tandem with other efficient home heating solutions like underfloor heating to ensure even heat distribution throughout the property.

Ground Source VS. Air Source

Ground source heat pumps extract heat from the ground, which is more stable than air source heat pumps. They provide consistent heating and cooling, are quiet, and have a long lifespan. Though they cost more upfront, they offer greater efficiency and significant long-term savings. They’re ideal for larger properties and working farms, including those with onsite holiday accommodation.


Commercial and Domestic Ground Source Heat Pumps

VIA Energy provides specialist ground source heat pump systems for both domestic and commercial properties across Barnstaple, Bideford, Crediton, and the surrounding areas. Our engineers will come to you to assess the property’s heat loss, and provide a detailed solution that works with any of your specific requirements.

Ground Source Heat Pumps for Devon Businesses

A ground source heat pump can be preferred over other renewable energy solutions for businesses. Firstly, they provide consistent heating and cooling, even in large buildings, leading to significant energy savings. Additionally, ground source heat pumps have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance. They have a lower carbon footprint, reducing businesses’ environmental impact. Finally, they qualify for government incentives and grants, like the BUS Scheme.


BUS Scheme Eligibility

The UK government’s Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) provides financial support to homeowners and landlords to replace their old and inefficient boilers with a new, energy-efficient model. The eligibility criteria include property ownership or private rental, certain benefits, and income requirements. The scheme covers the cost of a new boiler and installation. It offers up to 100% funding for eligible households. The grants have recently been extended until 2025. 

At VIA Energy, we take pride in achieving a 100% qualification rate for our clients’ ground source heat pump installations to receive installation cost refunds through the BUS Scheme.


What Is a GSHP?

A ground source heat pump extracts heat from the ground, providing heating and cooling. Pipes circulate fluid underground, absorbing and transferring heat. This heat is used to heat water for homes and businesses.


How Does a GSHP Work?

A ground source heat pump uses pipes filled with a heat transfer fluid. The fluid absorbs heat from the ground, then is compressed to increase temperature. The heat provides space heating and hot water. The cooled fluid is circulated back underground and the process repeats.


How Much Energy Does a GSHP Generate?

The amount of energy generated by a ground source heat pump depends on several factors: the size of the system, the heat demand of the property, and the efficiency of the technology. However, ground source heat pumps are generally highly efficient. The have a coefficient of performance (COP) of around 3-4, meaning they can generate up to four units of heat for every unit of electricity used to power the system.


Lower Heating Costs With a GSHP

Studies suggest that ground source heat pumps can provide annual energy savings of up to 30-70% compared to conventional heating and cooling systems. This contributes to significant reductions in energy bills over the lifespan of the system. Additionally, government incentives and grants, like the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS), can further reduce installation and running costs.
