Geothermal heat pumps

geothermal heat pumps efficiently collect solar energy stored in the ground, which is converted into energy for heating the building.

Up to 80% lower heating costs

Geothermal heat pumps collect thermal energy from the ground and transfer it to the heating system of the house. The wetter the ground is, the more efficiently the ground heat pump works. The average electricity cost of a geothermal heat pump is almost 80% cheaper compared to fossil fuels: for every kilowatt of electricity consumed, the geothermal heat pump produces 3-5 kilowatts of thermal energy. Thus, geothermal heating keeps your costs low! To find the best ground source heat pump, it is worth contacting our consultants, who will also advise on ground source heat pump installation.

Why choose a geothermal heat pump?

Air heating is increasingly popular in Estonia due to its flexibility and economy. Air source heat pumps are multifunctional, helping to keep the house cool in the summer and providing uniform heat in the winter. The efficiency of the air heat pump depends on the outside temperature of the building and the suitability of the selected device for the heating needs. Air heat pumps can also be successfully used as an independent heating solution, but the most effective is the use of air heating as an alternative to the existing heating solution to support furnace heating, oil heating, electric heating, etc.

How does an air-water heat pump work?

An air-to-air heat pump is a heating device that uses thermal energy taken from the air to heat a building. The device collects the low-temperature energy in the compressor of the outdoor module of the air-to-air pump, where it is converted into higher-temperature thermal energy. From there, in turn, the thermal energy moves with the help of the refrigerant to the internal module of the pump, from where it is blown into the air flow of the room by means of a fan. Among the air heat pumps, a system with an inverter compressor is more efficient and economical, which ensures a uniform temperature in the room thanks to the variable operating speed.

How is the geothermal heat pump installed?

Geothermal heating must always be installed by professional installers, because the installation of a geothermal heat pump requires the existence of a project and the involvement of experienced installers. The best ground source heat pump meets the building’s heating needs, and it is important to note that the cheap price of the device does not guarantee a quick return on investment. The prices of geothermal heat pumps depend on the capacity of the equipment. For the sake of economy, it is important to find a heating solution that matches the characteristics of a specific building, which also takes into account the heating and hot water needs of its residents.

The collector of a standard geothermal heat pump is installed horizontally at a depth of 1-1.2 meters above the ground. However, in the case of a system with boreholes, the borehole piping is placed vertically to a depth of up to 150 meters. The depth of the boreholes and the price of the holes depends on the soil and the general energy needs of the building. The borehole must also be installed depending on the requirements of the local government. There is no need to fear system and pipe leakage, because the area around the pipeline is filled with a special, environmentally safe mixture. A geothermal heat pump is efficient and reliable even in cold outside temperatures.

What are the main advantages of a geothermal heat pump?

A ground source heat pump has several advantages that make it an attractive choice for those looking for an energy efficient and environmentally friendly heating solution.


A geothermal heat pump can provide more thermal energy than the electrical energy invested in it. This efficiency comes from using the constant temperature in the ground.


The use of geothermal heat pumps is not limited only to the heating function. They can also be used for cooling in summer, thus providing year-round comfort.


Ground source heat pumps are known for their long life and low maintenance costs compared to other heating systems.


A geothermal heat pump uses the stored solar energy in the ground, which makes it an environmentally friendly way of heating. This reduces the carbon footprint and contributes to environmental protection

Geothermal heat pump vs air-to-water heat pump

Both heating systems are wallet-friendly and environmentally friendly solutions and are well suited for a large residence. The difference between the use of a geothermal heat pump and an air-to-water heat pump comes primarily from the characteristics of the building and its surrounding area. If a geothermal heat pump needs a sufficiently large free ground, the air-water heat pump is also suitable for a building that does not have such a large area around it. An alternative that is cheaper than the ones mentioned above, but with less energy efficiency, is an air-to-air heat pump.
