Using the natural heat sources from the thermal conductivity of the soils and rock below a site is becoming increasingly popular for heating your home, office or commercial property.

Ground source heating is a proven sustainable energy source that can deliver heating to your property. This method of heating is widely used elsewhere in the world and has recently been introduced in the UK.

Not all sites are appropriate for ground source heat supplies and we recommend that a borehole prognosis report is undertaken in conjunction with a site visit in order to provide a basis for a site assessment

One or several boreholes are drilled depending on the heat supply requirement of the property. A loop system much like the back of a refrigerator is then installed in the borehole(s) as seen in the diagram below.

Jackson Drilling are frequently involved in the drilling and installation of boreholes for the use of geothermal heat supplies.

Jackson Drilling Limited is now a member of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association. As well as drilling the borehole, we can now offer to carry out all electrofusion welding, pressure testing and the final connection to the heat exchanger.

Vertical Closed Loop System

Water is pumped and circulated through the pipe work, along a trench, down the borehole(s) and up again, through the heat exchanger which conducts the thermal heat as it travels, this in turn feeds your radiators or under floor heating.

Open Loop System

A hole is drilled to the underlying water table; this is pumped through a heat exchanger and returned to ground via a soak away. The extracted heat may then be used to heat a property or swimming pool.
