The GSHPs can accept these types of transgressions and provide outstanding energy performance.

Ground source heat pump (GSHP) system for second floor heating and cooling.
The first barrier to wider application of quality GSHPs is the high cost of the ground loop.
List the operation and maintenance advantages of GSHPs;
Four GSHPs arranged in cascade (total capacity of 120 kW/409,457 Btu/hr) provide warm water for TABS, for the heating coils in the variable air volume (VAV) system, and for floor heating.
Mr Brown added: "GSHPs have the potential to make a difference to the Government's bold aims in the Clean Growth Strategy and, crucially, the wider environment and UK carbon footprint."
This low grade energy could potentially be extracted by nearby vertical ground heat exchangers (GHEs) or ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems.
While we recognize that the source energy for GSHP systems in heating mode is stored solar energy in the earth's crust, we believe that the term geothermal is not necessarily incorrect.

Disadvantages: GSHPs use a fair amount of space - although you can get borehole systems which take up less - and you'll need to dig up at least a part of your garden to install one.
