   The system uses or rather absorbs in, heat locked in the ground, even in the coldest winter. The pipes are laid straight, or coiled two meters below the ground surface, in trenches. The pipes can be laid straight or coiled according to the size of your garden. If you have a large garden, they can be coiled and placed further below the surface, but for smaller gardens, pipes are laid often straight and not very deep. These pipes have a mixture of water and antifreeze running through them. The fluid running through the pipes absorbs the surrounding heat, and then passes through a heat compressor which raises it to higher temperatures. This heated fluid can then be used to heat homes and also to heat water. The Ground Source Heat Pumps can be used for under-floor or warm air heating. The compressor in the system is runs by electricity, so the system uses up some electricity, but not much.
