Air source heat pumps vs ground source heat pumps; the debate continues between these two similar but distinct technologies. Between May and July 2022, almost 903 ground and air source heat pumps were used to displace other types of home heating fuel including gas, oil and coal.
With gas boilers to be banned from 2025, more and more people are taking advantage of the government’s Boiler Upgrade Scheme to get up to £6,000 off the cost of more efficient central heating systems, so we wanted to share our thoughts on air source heat pumps vs ground source heat pumps, and which might be best suited for your home.

As a leading specialist in rubber vibration mounts, we offer our extensive expertise using a step by step guide to help you choose the correct rubber mounts. Read on to read our easy to follow guide to choosing the best anti-vibration mount to suit you.
What are Anti Vibration Mounts?
Anti-vibration mounts are fastened to machines to eliminate vibration and noise. Machinery vibration from equipment can be transferred to the supporting structure and travel large distances to be emitted as noise elsewhere in a building or structure. The mounts are typically made of rubber or a combination of rubber and other materials. Rubber vibration mounts are particularly effective in preventing the transfer of vibrations that machines generate.

There are numerous reasons why controlling vibrations during construction is important, including the need to keep the construction plans continuing without complaint from the public. There are various pieces of equipment that can be used on construction machinery in order to help maintain construction vibration limits. In this blog, we will cover the disadvantages of excess vibration as well as anti-vibration techniques and specific product highlights in order to guarantee reduction.

In the modern age, with our ever-increasing environmental awareness, it’s no wonder that the renewable energy industry is thriving, and in the UK in particular, wind farms. Whilst in its most basic form, wind power has existed since 5000 BC in the form of wind-propelled boats, and the first electricity-generating wind turbine was built in 1887, modern wind power became part of mainstream British society in 1951, and has been flourishing ever since. Due to this prominence, wind power is a keen area of interest to GMT.
Levelling feet can stabilise a wide range of machinery, with the height adjustment feature of allowing machinery to be levelled when installed on uneven ground.
There are a variety of combinations and sizes available, meaning that there is a type to suit all applications. At GMT, spindles can be combined with various types of threaded foot plate, enabling customers to specify feet to their exact requirements. The feet can also be specified to have anti-slip rubber pads. Additionally, feet with high load bearing capacity and self-aligning capabilities are available.
