Today, with the increased popularity and availability of renewable energy sources the question of ensuring a proper household heating, that is energy, is not as complicated as it used to be. Users are embracing the environmental sustainability stand and are turning to heat pumps and solar panels as means of providing heat for their homes. The geothermal heat pump and solar thermal panels energy efficiency rates coupled make these the perfect choice for those, who are concerned about the impact they make on the environment-aspiring to zero emission buildings. The combined system of solar thermal panels and ground source heat pump for heating capacity 13 kW will be developed. The main novelty is the investigation of a new type of a solar thermal accumulation tank. Hypothetically this solar assisted ground coupled heat pump system should reach COP rate 4 and reduce electricity demand consumption by 40%. To find out the truth of proposed thesis, the research will be carried out. Both simulation and real-life object data analysis will be performed. As a result, the potential of such a system in northern latitudes will be determined.
