ground source heat pumps (GSHP) commonly use boreholes (up to several hundred metres deep) to abstract ground water from an aquifer. This water will be significantly warmer than ambient surface temperatures, increasing with depth, and will not fluctuate with air temperature. High source temperatures require less input energy to reach output temperatures and result in a greater CoP. Abstraction…
