What Is A Water Source Heat Pump

Water Source Heat Pump

Water source heat pumps (WSHPs) move heat from a source of water to your household in an extremely efficient manner, especially if the water temperature is around 5 to 8 degrees Celsius. As such, there are numerous advantages of installing heat pumps.

Depending on the type of heat pump, either the water from a river or small stream is pumped through the heat pump, or a special refrigerant fluid is pumped through pipes laid in the body of water. While both have their own advantages, the latter type requires less maintenance and an easier application process, making it a cheaper option.

Water source heat pumps have been in use since the late 1940s. They use a rather constant temperature of the water as an exchange medium instead of extracting the heat from the outdoor air temperature. Thus, water source heat pumps can reach reasonably high efficiencies (300% to 600%) even on the coldest winter nights, in comparison to 175% to 250% for air-source heat pumps on cool days.

When purchasing a water source heat pump, you must consider several factors that will affect the cost of your purchase and the long-term return of it.

First, you must consider the initial purchase price of the water source heat pump which tends to be higher when compared to other heat pumps. The cost incurred for the water source heat pump is around £10,000.

However, this higher cost should be viewed as an investment, as the average payback period for domestic water source heat pumps is 5 years and around 10 years for larger projects.

As the useful life of water source heat pumps is at least 15 years, you are expected to experience a net benefit of using the system for 2/3 of its useful life. However, water source heat pumps can last upwards of 50 years with good maintenance, thus, significantly extending the potential payback period.

The net benefit of the heat pump is due to its increased energy efficiency by using waste energy to both heat and cool your property. On average, energy bills are reduced by 15% after installing the system.
