water source heat pump operates much like a traditional air source heat pump except that it extracts and dissipates heat by way of water instead of air. This is certainly not a type of home comfort system that will be available to anyone, but if you live in an area close to a well, lake or other natural water source, it may be an option worth considering.  All types of heat pumps can provide excellent year round home temperature control by pumping heat in during the winter months and removing it during the summer. The main difference between the types of heat pumps is where they get the heat or dispose of it.  Traditional air source heat pumps get their heat from the air outside, as even relatively cold air actually contains a substantial amount of heat. They use this heat to keep your house warm in the winter, but as the outside temperatures go down below freezing, these heat pumps can become less and less effective.  Water source heat pumps, on the other hand, work on basically the same principle as air source heat pumps, but they extract heat from a body of water rather than the air. They do this by cycling water through a system of pipes that is laid out at the bottom of a body of water. As the water cycles through, it gathers heat from the lake or reservoir and then carries it back to your house.  In the summer, the process is reversed and heat is carried out of your house and expelled in the cooler water outside. Like air source heat pumps, water source heat pumps are slightly more efficient at cooling rather than heating, as even deep water will eventually get cold during the winter months. However, the water is still often warmer than the air, and so water source heat pumps can be a good alternative if you live in a slightly cooler climate.  Of course, you do also need to have access to an appropriate body of water to have a water source heat pump installed, which makes it something that is not available to everyone. But if you do live near such a body of water, a water source heat pump is definitely something worth considering.  How does it work?? The system itself consists of reverse cycle heat pump units that are connected by a water loop. Each unit offers very specific levels of air comfort, all depending on the zone in which they are installed. During the colder seasons, the heat pumps will transfer heat from the water loop and through the unit’s specially designed refrigerant to water heat exchanger, before moving it into the air.In more extreme weather conditions, when more heat is required in order to keep the building warm, units will be operating in heating mode. This is why heat is them provided to every individual unit from the water loop. If it happens that there is not enough heat in the water loop, an energy efficient fluid heater can be installed in order to assist the heating process.The water should be kept as close to the house as possible, so that is will not need to use excessive energy in order to pump. This is because the efficiency levels could decrease as a result, which that affects your energy savings. If the diameter of the pipe is of an adequate size, water can be sourced from a good distance away – especially in a downward direction. When it comes to considering the installation of a water source heat pump, you should also take things such as planning permission into account before you start work. In many homes and locations, permission will be required.                                     Types of Water Source Heat Pumps  Closed-Loop System If there is a stable and sufficient body of water near your home, this form is definitely the one with the lowest cost. A supply pipeline will run through the ground, starting from your home, and ending in the water. It will meet the water supply from at least eight feet under the ground to avoid freezing in the winter. Coils must also be placed in the water source to ensure that it meets the minimum requirements in terms of volume, depth, and quality. Open-Loop System This system works to utilise a well or the surface of a body of water while the fluid in the heat exchange runs through the heat pump system. Once it has dispersed through the whole system, the water will return to the ground via a well, recharge well, or a surface discharge. This option is one that is only practical where there is a reasonable and consistent supply of clean water. Alongside this, you need to make sure that all of the rules and regulations that relate to groundwater discharge are completed. Hybrid Systems These systems tend to use geothermal resources, or a combination of these alongside natural air from outside. The hybrid systems tend to be placed in situations where the cooling needs exceed the heating ones. An example of this would be a standing column well. This variation of the open-loop system required one of more deep, vertical, wells. The water is brought up from the bottom of a standing column and then returned to the top. The bleed cycle system will cool the column while the heat is being rejected, and warm it up during the heat extraction period.
