Geothermal Boreholes for Ground Source Heating.

For our Domestic & Industrial clients who want a green energy supply.

What is Geothermal Heating?

Geothermal Heating is the use of the Earth’s natural heat, just under the surface to warm and cool buildings. Geothermal heat pumps move heat from the ground to the building in winter or from the building to the ground in summer. Geothermal heating is driven by a small amount of electricity and is very efficient. Geothermal heating has been used by humans since ancient times and is available in many countries.

Key Points:

  • Ground source heating is a green, renewable energy source that can save you money.
  • Geothermal heating is suitable for commercial and domestic properties.
  • Grants are available in some areas. Ask us for more information.

A properly constructed borehole/water well should last a lifetime. Whether drilling a borehole for industrial units or for a domestic supply there are several important key factors which should be considered before drilling proceeds. *The location of the borehole and the design should be upper most. The borehole should be drilled as far away from any potential harmful contaminants as possible. *The minimum yield, this is the least amount of water the borehole would produce in order to make it viable. *The geological formations that will be drilled and the chances of potential aquifers. *The depth and the diameter of the finished well, this varies on smaller projects depending on drilling conditions, but it is important on larger ones as pumping equipment must be planned for at the outset.

Authority Regulations Standards

All casings,liners and screens used should be to water authority regulations standards or (B.S.879)and a gravel pack should be installed to act as a filter media whenever possible, a sanitary seal should be set below ground, the depth depending on over burden formation and either cased or grouted upto ground or chamber level.
