No matter what your project, the experts here at Alto Energy will ensure that the right heat pump is specified to you.
What Is A Ground Source Heat Pump?
A Ground Source Heat Pump is an efficient, alternative form of heating. The heat pump extracts renewable, solar energy from the ground to produce sufficient heat to comfortably cater for all of your heating and hot water requirements.
Ground Source Heat Pumps work by moving heat stored in the ground into the building, unlike traditional fossil fuel and biomass systems which create heat through the burning of a fuel. This means that they don't have to work as hard to produce heat, and as a consequence the production of this heat is far more efficient than traditional methods. The IVT range of Ground Source Heat Pumps typically have a coefficient of performance of 4.0, which means that for every 1kW of electricity used, 4kW of useful heat energy can be produced.
Ground Source Heat Pumps can work with any form of distribution system, however the best performance is achieved when one is partnered with Underfloor Heating which enables the lowest possible flow temperatures.
At Alto Energy, we have the design expertise to provide you the most efficient Ground Source Heat Pump for your project, delivered through our trusted network on Partners.
Our Range Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Alto Energy are the sole supplier of the IVT range of Ground Source Heat Pumps in the UK. In addition, we also offer the Pico Energy range of inverter-driven Ground Source Heat Pumps for situations when the IVT heat pump is not suitable.
IVT Greenline HE
The IVT Greenline HE Ground Source Heat Pump is the latest generation of the famous Greenline product family. The IVT Greenline HE is a high efficiency Ground Source Heat Pump with intelligent, easy to use controls incorporating weather compensation as standard. What's more, with a parts warranty backed by Bosch, you have total piece of mind that this is a product that will continue to perform for years to come.
IVT Geo is a heat pump with ground-breaking technology that reduces your heating costs. However the key feature of the IVT Geo is the potential scale of the heat output that can be achieved. IVT Geo has been manufactured in eight different power sizes, with the capability of cascading up to six units together. This allows us to put together a solution that fits the exact needs of any commercial or large domestic project.
Pico Energy WPS Inverter
The Pico Energy WPS 6-18kW inverter-driven Ground Source Heat Pump is a high efficiency, innovative heat pump. Due to the inverter-driven compressor, the heat pump always adjusts its output based on the actual needs to the building, to ensure optimum efficiency. Despite having an output of up to 18kW, the low start current means that this heat pump can be installed with a single phase supply.
The Benefits Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a Ground Source Heat Pump from Alto Energy for your project has many benefits, and through our unique experience and expertise we ensure that these benefits are optimised.
a reliable heating system
First and foremost, Ground Source Heat Pumps provide a consistent and reliable form of heating for you or your customer.
Reduced heating costs
Ground Source Heat Pumps are very efficient when they are designed and installed correctly. Our business model at Alto Energy is to combine our unique design capabilities with the skill and expertise of our installation partners, to ensure that the end result is a complete heating and DHW system that costs as little as possible to run.
Savings versus traditional electric, oil and LPG heating systems can be as high as a 75% reduction in running costs.
The Government created a incentive scheme known as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in 2014. This scheme rewards adopters of renewable heating technologies such as Ground Source Heat Pumps. Switching to a Ground Source Heat Pump saves energy and therefore helps the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.
People who join the scheme receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green, renewable heat energy it is estimated that their system produces.
