Using borehole technology for your ground source heat pump instead of a horizontal (trench) collector offers a number of important advantages. There is far less downtime (whereas a paddock or field needs approximately 1 year to recover from the installation of a horizontal collector). With a borehole, the collector for your ground source heat pump (GSHP) can be laid under a road, building or other impervious surface. And perhaps most important of all, with borehole technology, the GSHP heat delivery is not affected by seasonal fluctuations in temperature. Boreholes are also extremely efficient for passive and active building cooling systems.
Nicholls Boreholes is one of the most experienced installers of GSHP boreholes in the UK. By completing the whole project with our own in-house staff we take the headache out of your ground source heat pump project. From initial site survey and no-obligation quotation to the final testing and paperwork, every aspect of your project is meticulously managed. As approved suppliers we can also advise and process applications for Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) funding and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
We cover a large area of the South for borehole drilling, including West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, London, Kent, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Middlesex and other areas of the UK and have drilled in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
