Each day, our planet absorbs solar energy which is stored up in the ground as
warmth. With a little effort we can exploit this constantly refilled reserve of heat.
It is inexhaustible and free.
Collecting this thermal energy, transforming it to make it usable, and making use
of it to heat buildings, is possible thanks to a machine called the Ground
Source Heat Pump.
This equipment is powered by electricity however it performs a remarkable role.
For every one kilowatt-hour (unit) of electricity consumed, it harvests three to
four kilowatt-hours of heat for your house. A good part of your heating can thus
be delivered in the form of free, renewable and non-polluting energy taken from
