What Is A Water Source Heat Pump

A water source heat pump can extract heat from a water source near your home and convert it into heating and hot water.

What Is A Water Source Heat Pump?  

A water source heat pump system can give consistent water temperature, for consistent hot water and heating, even in cold temperatures. The pipework is also submerged underwater, so water source heat pump systems are a viable option when aesthetic sensitivity is required as they have a minimal visual impact while being installed and when completed. Water source heat pumps work well in cold temperatures and are very efficient. They require some electricity to operate, but 75% of their energy needs are generated directly.

The advantages of using thermal energy from water:

  • Perfect for properties with a local water source
  • Provides heating and hot water for your home
  • The heat pump can be housed indoors or in an outbuilding
  • Doesn’t require digging or drilling
  • Quiet during operation
  • Minimal visual impact
  • Works in cold temperatures
  • Compatible with radiators and underfloor heating
  • Minimal maintenance
  • No fuel deliveries or fuel storage needs

Is a water source heat pump suitable for my home?

A suitable water source is required on your property. A river, stream or lake can be a potential source.

Is your home well insulated? Sustainable energy is only useful if you have made your home efficient.

Do you intend to replace an existing heating system, or is this the first heating system that will be installed in a new build home? Replacing an older heating system delivers the most benefits. For a new build home, it is worth planning with your installer how the heat pump system will work in your home –which includes choosing radiators or underfloor heating.
