Geothermal Drilling

What is Geothermal Drilling?
Geothermal drilling is the process of drilling a borehole in order to utilise the earth's heat to provide heating to your house or property. This is known as ground source energy - find out more with the British Geological Survey (BGS) here.    

How does geothermal ground source heating work?
An underground loop will be inserted into the borehole. A mixture of water and antifreeze is transported round the loop to harness the earth's heat. This is then brought above ground where a ground source heat pump will heat that mixture and pump it into your property either through underfloor heating or radiators. 

Geothermal/ground source heating will reduce your carbon footprint and can also save money on fuel bills. 

This video from The Energy Savings Trust explains it very well, watch now.     

How can Filpumps help?
Filpumps have many years experience in drilling boreholes. Drilling boreholes for water and drilling boreholes for geothermal purposes is a similar process and it was inevitable that our experience with boreholes would lead to us providing geothermal drilling for ground source energy.
