The heat pump is not a new technology; it has been used for decades in Sweden and around the world. Heat pumps are commonly found in refrigerators and air conditioners. Heat pumps transfer heat by cycling a substance known as a refrigerant through an evaporation and condensation cycle. The refrigerant is pumped between two heat exchangers by a compressor. The refrigerant is evaporated at low pressure and absorbs heat from its surroundings in one heat exchanger, the evaporator. The refrigerant is then compressed en route to the condenser, a heat exchanger where it condenses at high pressure. It releases the heat it absorbed earlier in the cycle. Ground Source Heat Pumps Ground source heating is solar energy that has been stored in the ground. As the sun begins to shine more brightly in the spring, energy is gradually stored beneath the soil's surface. The warmer it gets, the lower it is stored. By the time autumn arrives, sufficient solar energy will have been accumulated to heat your home over the bitterly cold winter. Using a liquid-filled loop, also known as a collector, it is possible to collect solar heat that is stored deep in the soil, at the bottom of a lake, or a few metres beneath your lawn. Your home's energy requirements, your heating system, and the nature of your property will determine the type of heat source that best suits your needs.
