The GEOFIT project landed on the Aran Islands and is retrofitting a house by means of a geothermal heat pump!
The Spanish drilling company Catalana de Perforacions arrived on site with their equipment and will drill a 100 m borehole in the house’s garden.
GEOFIT is showcasing the added value of geothermal heating and cooling in different kinds of buildings across Europe. The Aran demonstration site is the only one addressing a residential home.
After drilling the borehole, the existing radiators will be partially replaced by a low temperature underfloor heating system which runs at lower temperature, thereby improving the efficiency of the heat pump.
