LZC Articles At A Glance

Ground Source Heat Pumps take low level retained heat from the ground and boost it for heating a property and providing hot water for domestic use. Also see our article on Thermal Collector Pipework (or ground-coupled heat exchanger or ground loop) serving Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP).

Solar thermal systems use the sun’s energy to heat water for domestic use. A 1m2 solar thermal panel could save 500-800 kWh per year. See more details on our Solar Water guide page.

Biomass is a bioenergy fuel source which when burnt provides heat energy. See our Biomass page and our Wood Storage Volume article for further details.

Find out how Air Source Heat Pumps absorb heat from the outside air using a refrigerant circuit to turn low grade heat into heat capable of heating a property heating.

See our article on Solar Electric panels that convert energy from the sun into free electricity.
