Ground source heat pumps
Nu-Heat's range of NIBE ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) is designed to supply the home with inexpensive and environmentally friendly heating and hot water using heat stored in the ground.
The efficiency of a ground source heat pump is measured in Coefficient of Performance (CoP). This is the ratio of units of heat output for each unit of electricity used to drive the compressor and pump for the ground loop. A CoP of 4 means that for every kilowatt of electricity put in, you get 4 kilowatts of energy in the form of warm water. The flow temperature of the warm water is typically between 35°C and 45°C; much lower than achieved by a domestic boiler. The units can reach higher temperatures, but the CoP is then compromised. Keeping the temperature at the lower end of the scale ensures the system operates efficiently and is the reason why heat pumps are the ideal partner for underfloor heating.
