Water source heat pumps work by absorbing the heat from the sun which is stored in bodies of water such as lakes or rivers. A system of flexible pipes containing fluid is laid in water. The fluid absorbs heat from the surrounding water as it passes through the pipe and carries it straight into your home.
High year round water temperatures allow water to water heat pumps to provide very high levels of efficiency with CoP's of 5 or over achievable.
Underground water stores an enormous amount of solar energy which can be extracted at very high levels of energy efficiency by circulating it directly through the heat pump evaporator.
The Benefits of Water Source Heat Pumps:
In addition water source heat pumps are ideal for new builds, highly insulated renovation buildings and houses with underfloor heating.
Water source heat pumps do incur slightly higher installation costs than other types of heat pumps and do require space, good depth and some flow of water to refresh heat collection. Lake Source heat pumps have lower running cost and can capture better temperatures from refreshed water.
