If you have a large body of water next to your home, or nearby underground, you can gather energy by linking it to a heat exchanger. This method provides a consistent amount of energy all year round, for hot water, heating and air conditioning.
Maintains even temperature all year round
Can be very highly efficient
Low impact on your land
How it works
Large bodies of water such as aquifers, lakes, the sea and in some instances, rivers retain heat from the sun, ground water movement and natural geothermal gradient. Whatever the season, this temperature difference can be exploited for heating and cooling your home.
We drill a series of water wells and install a pumping system in the water well or a lake and pump the well or lake water directly in to the heat pump evaporator. This requires specific WSHP heat exchangers within the heat pump. The heat pump itself then functions as it would for a GSHP using the refrigerant and heat exchangers to extract the energy from the well or lake water and to enable this energy to be transferred in to the property.
Water source heat pumps can use surface water such as lakes and rivers as well as the sea. Water stores an enormous amount of energy, which can be extracted to provide a consistent amount of energy all year round, for hot water or heating.
