How are you heating your home?

Using a heat pump to heat your school or education facility can ensure a steady temperature all year round, creating a comfortable learning environment, which is energy efficient and sustainable.

Our systems will significantly reduce heating bills as well as improving the overall environment. Something worth considering when you think that, as an example, heating and hot water accounts for around 75% of energy usage in schools.

  • Reduced carbon footprint

    Heat pumps generate much lower CO2 emissions than conventional heating systems, helping to boost decarbonisation targets and promote your organisation as being socially responsible.

  • No fossil fuels

    With a ground or air source heat pump you will be shielded long-term from the volatility in fossil fuel prices, which, when rising, can generate a considerable extra cost to an organisation.

  • Long term reliability

    As a heat pump does not involve any form of combustion, it should be expected to last much longer than a traditional boiler and will require less maintenance. We would expect an air source heat pump to last between 15 to 20 years and a ground source system to last more than 30 years. By contrast, an average condensing boiler, is likely to last only between seven and 10 years.

  • Active and passive cooling

    Heat pumps can also be used for active and passive cooling, ensuring a comfortable and stable learning environment all year round, not to mention helping to maintain the condition of the property and its contents. In the case of passive cooling via ground source, these benefits come with minimal operating costs.

  • Increased safety of low temperature radiators

    Heat pumps are at their most efficient when providing steady state heat at a lower flow temperature. This makes them an ideal solution for low temperature radiators or underfloor heating in environments where safety is paramount, without compromising on the heat output or having to install unsightly and inefficient radiator covers.

  • Hassle-free servicing and maintenance

    As heat pumps do not involve any combustion, servicing and maintenance is usually straightforward. An added benefit of choosing Finn Geotherm to design and install your heat pump, is that we also have an in-house servicing and maintenance team who can attend to your system for years to come.

  • District heating

    If you have a number of buildings to heat on one site, heat pumps are ideal for running a district heating (also known as communal heating) scheme. This uses one main heat pump system to supply heating and hot water to a series of premises. See our district heating page for more details.


    This project has made a significant contribution in our carbon reduction journey and has given us reassurance that change for the better of the environment can also be cost-effective and deliver a practical operational solution.
