What heat pumps are covered by Flexi-Orb?
The following heat pumps are covered under Flexi-Orb:
Air source heat pumpS
Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) which absorb heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. This heat is then used to provide you with heating and/or hot water. The most common ASHP is an air to water system.
Ground source heat pumpS
Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) which use the constant temperatures in the ground to supply your property with heat and hot water. The pipes for a GSHP are either buried horizontally in a trench (about a metre below ground) or boreholes are drilled to extract heat from further down. The fluid made up of water and antifreeze is circulated through a ground loop buried in the garden.
