A heat pump is a refrigeration circuit that can cool spaces during warm weather and heat spaces during cool weather. With a heat pump, you can cool or heat a space by only using electricity. By not burning fuel for heating, as in a traditional central furnace, a flammability risk is eliminated.

Water Source Heat Pumps

A water source heat pump is a type of heat pump that operates by rejecting heat to a water-pipe system or water loop during the summer or by absorbing heat from the same water loop during the winter. Since the heat is transferred via a heat exchanger into a pipe that is carrying water, the operation is quieter and the system footprint is smaller since water is more efficient at carrying away heat than air. In an air-source system, the limiting heat-transfer coefficient is on the air side and typical forced convection air-side heat-transfer coefficients is in the range of 25 to 250 W/m2 K. In contrast, the forced convection heat-transfer coefficient on the water side is between 50 to 20,000 W/m2 K. This makes WSHP equipment more efficient and smaller in size than air-source heat pumps.

Benefits of Water Source Heat Pumps

  • Water source heat pumps are an environmentally friendly and cost-efficient heating option for your home with a variety of benefits.
  • They generate less CO2 emissions than conventional heating systems.
  • Electricity must be used to power water source heat pumps which circulate the water through a loop to capture the heat. For every unit of electricity, you'll receive between two and four units of heat in return, making heat pumps an efficient and sustainable heating solution.
  • Works well with other heating systems and can be retrofitted
  • Long lifespan with an average length of 15 years.

Air source heat pumps

Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid passes through a compressor, increasing the temperature, and transfers that higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house. An Air-to-water heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air, and transfer the heat to water. An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. This makes them more suitable for under floor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

Benefits of air source models

  • Low electric bills.
  • Low carbon emissions..
  • No fuel deliveries needed.
  • Can heat your home as well as your water.
  • Minimal maintenance required..
  • Easier to install.

Swimming pool heat-cool pumps

Heat pumps operate on electricity and they are extremely efficient because they move heat from one place to another. Swimming pool heat pumps work the same way as HVAC do when they operate in their heating mode. HVAC systems transfer the heat to air; pool heat pumps transfer the heat to the pool water.
