      I’m considering installing a geothermal heating system in a new build house and am trying to find a realistic Coefficient of Performance for a heat pump averaged out over the whole year. I have been quoted COP’s ranging from 4.8 to 5.6 but assume these to be the best achievable ratings. Has anyone information on the Seasonal Performance Factor for a heat pump for a house of 201 sq.m.

      Also, what would be the best system to use in conjunction with the geothermal system for heating domestic hot water?

      I would install solar panels to heat your water. There are grants now available for solar panels go to

      The grants cover more than just solar panels. Heat pumps are also entitled to a grant. Infact the highest grant available is for a geothermal heat pump. c. €6,000
