If you have a large body of water next to your home or underground in an aquifer, you can gather energy by linking it to a heat pump system. This method provides a consistent amount of energy all year round, for hot water, heating and cooling.
Maintains excellent source 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 using a Water Source Heat Pump (WSHP).
We drill a series of water wells and install a pumping and re-injection systems or install a pump system in a lake, sea or river and pump the water directly in to the heat pump. This requires specific WSHP heat exchangers within the heat pump and careful design and investigation into the water source temperatures. 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 water source and to enable this energy to be transferred in to the property.
