Water source heat pumps can be categorized into three main types based on the water source.
Open-loop water source heat pump systems extract water directly from a natural water source, such as a lake, river, or well. The water is pumped through the heat pump, which exchanges heat with the refrigerant to provide heating or cooling. The cooled or heated water is then discharged back into the water source.
- Higher efficiency: Open-loop systems tend to have higher efficiency because they use the constant temperature of the water source.
- Potentially higher installation costs: Installing open-loop systems may require permits and adherence to specific regulations. Additionally, access to a suitable water source is essential.
- Environmental considerations: Proper planning is necessary to ensure minimal impact on the water source and compliance with environmental regulations.
Closed-loop water source heat pump systems circulate a heat transfer fluid (usually a mixture of water and antifreeze) through a closed circuit of pipes buried in the ground or submerged in a water source, such as a pond or well. The heat transfer fluid absorbs or releases heat from the surrounding environment and carries it to the heat pump.
- Versatility: Closed-loop systems can be installed in various settings, including areas with limited access to natural water sources.
- Lower installation costs: Closed-loop systems generally have lower installation costs than open-loop systems since they don’t require access to a specific water source.
- Consistent performance: The closed-loop design allows for consistent performance regardless of variations in the outdoor temperature or water source conditions.
Hybrid water source heat pump systems combine the advantages of both open-loop and closed-loop systems. They use multiple heat sources, such as a well and an air-source heat pump, to optimise energy efficiency and performance. These systems switch between the water and air sources based on their respective temperature conditions.
- Increased efficiency: Hybrid systems provide enhanced efficiency by utilizing the most favourable heat source depending on the ambient conditions.
- Flexibility: Hybrid systems offer flexibility in choosing the heat source, making them suitable for various locations and climates.
- Redundancy: If one heat source becomes unavailable or experiences issues, the system can switch to the alternative source, ensuring continuous operation.

A water source heat pump is a heating and cooling system that utilises a water source, such as a lake, river, or well, to transfer heat between the water and the indoor environment. It provides efficient and eco-friendly temperature control.
A water source heat pump works by extracting heat from a water source and transferring it to the indoor space for heating or removing heat from the indoor space and releasing it into the water source for cooling. It uses a refrigerant and a heat exchanger to facilitate this heat transfer process.
Yes, water source heat pumps can be integrated with existing systems. They can work with other heating or cooling equipment, such as a backup furnace or air conditioning unit, to provide supplementary or backup heating/cooling when needed.
The duration of installation depends on various factors, including the system’s size, the project’s complexity, and site conditions. On average, a water source heat pump installation can take several days to a few weeks, considering the planning, equipment setup, and necessary modifications.
