Water Source Heat Pumps
The focus on eco–friendly heating and cooling options keeps growing. There has been a lot of innovation in this field, and if you’re interested in learning how you can help make your home greener while still keeping comfortable year round, call AAction Air Conditioning & Heating Co. Inc.. Like conventional heating and cooling systems, water–source heat pumps can both heat and cool your home. Unlike other systems, they reduce the amount of energy you use in doing so. If saving energy and money, reducing your impact on the environment and maintaining effective heating and cooling power in your home are goals that you’re interested in achieving, call AAction Air Conditioning & Heating Co. Inc. today. We have the answers to any questions you may have about water–source heat pumps: their installation and maintenance, as well as the potential benefits they can provide.
What Are Water–Source Heat Pumps?
Water–source heat pumps work in the same manner as other heat pump models in that they do not consume a fuel source in order to create heat or to cool your home. Instead they transfer ambient heat from water on your property to warm your home when it’s cold, and transfer heat back out of your home when the temperature is high. This versatility makes water–source heat pumps as convenient as they are efficient. AAction Air Conditioning & Heating Co. Inc. is proud to offer water–source heat pumps from trusted, well–established companies such as Carrier and Florida Heat Pumps. We know that our clients have high expectations of us and in turn we know that we must have high expectations of the products we use. That’s why we provide products with the same high standards we have and bring them to every job we perform. Call us to learn about the water–source heat pumps available for installation in your home.
The Water–Source Heat Pump Installation Process
Water–source heat pumps require the installation of a loop system in order to circulate a heat transfer fluid which absorbs heat for exchange with the refrigerant within the heat pump. This loop system is installed in an available body of water on your property deep enough so that the temperature surrounding it is more or less constant. There are two types of water–source loop systems.
Closed Water–Source Loop Systems
In a closed loop system the antifreeze solution circulates throughout a system of plastic tubing. This solution absorbs heat from the surrounding water and delivers it to the heat pump. A heat exchanger transfers heat between this solution and the refrigerant in the heat pump. The process is repeated, allowing for consistent heating and cooling power in your home. The process is simply reversed to draw heat out of the structure when the temperature is warm. The body of water in which your closed loop system is installed must meet certain size and depth requirements. Call today to learn more about having closed loop system installation.
Open Loop Water–Source Systems
An open loop actually uses the water available on your property in the same way that closed loops use the antifreeze solution in that type of system. Water is circulated through the loop system and, after the heat exchange, is discharged back to the ground. This option obviously requires an adequate water supply for operation.
