PBK are experts in all areas of plumbing and have increased their services to include renewable and low carbon technologies.  These include solar thermal, biomass and ground source heat pumps.

A Ground Source Heat Pump will use pipes buried beneath the ground to absorb the heat from the earth.  The heat is sourced about three feet under the ground, which stays at a constant temperature all year round.  It is best combined with under floor heating, as it delivers heat at a lower temperature than a boiler but over a longer period of time.
Heat is absorbed from the ground via a series of pipes laid under your garden, which is then pumped into a heat exchanger, which pushes heat into your home.
The benefits of a heat pump are,
•    Generated heat and hot water for your home 

•    Average cost for installation is  between £5,000 - £9,000

A Government grant is available
