Abstract: Nowadays, Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) are achieving significant efficiencies, mostly because of the development of their electromechanical components. However, concepts such as the technical performance of the grouting materials deserve more profound analysis, as becoming essential in areas where good potential thermal performance of the GSHP and serious risks of groundwater contamination exist. In this paper, several fluid mortars with enhanced characteristics have been evaluated. Results show improved mechanical and thermal properties compared to conventional grouting materials. Likewise, mortars exhibited good performance after being subjected to durability treatment. For now, the cost of some mortars may constitute a barrier.
