Ground Source Heat Pumps - Delta 30, Delta 50 and Delta 60

Ground Source Heat Pumps

If you need any help with the information below please call our office 7 days a week and we will help you.

If you are installing a ground source heat pump system then we recommend reducing our Delta 60 figures by 20%. This is to compensate for the lower water temperatures that these operate at. Cast Iron Radiators have an operating characteristic of retaining the heat for longer periods which makes them ideal for use with Ground Source Heating Systems.

Some ground source suppliers are recomending that you work to Delta 30 figures -
To work out Delta 30 from our website Delta 60 figures - you just need to add an extra 30%

So for example if our website is telling you that you need a 10 section radiator - then if you are installing in a Delta 30 heating system you would need to use a 13 section radiator.

What is delta 60?

The figures that we quote on our website are at delta 60 - this is basically 80 degrees C output from most central heating boilers versus the 20 degrees C room temperature that we all want to achieve in our homes. The difference between the two is 80-20 = 60 ie Delta 60

Some boilers have a lower output temperature - if this is the case you may need our Delta 50 figures, we can provide these for all of our radiators if you call our office.

Your Cast Iron Radiator Delivery Day

We want to help you as much as possible to make your delivery day as efficient as possible

Your radiators are dispatched direct to you from our Factory in Lincolnshire via the national pallet delivery system.

Once your radiators are ready for dispatch we will arrange with you for a convenient delivery day.(timed deliveries or Saturday deliveries will incur extra costs)

Our delivery driver will always try to help as much as is reasonably practicable.

You are paying for a kerbisde delivery - this means that the Radiators are on a pallet

This is a typical pallet of radiators on a pump truck

This delivery method is not suitable for rough ground or gravel so you need to be aware of this situation and make suitable allowances.
