Water Source Heat Pumps

In an open loop system, water is used from a surface or underground source, such as a lake, pond or well. The water is pumped into the heat pump where the heat is extracted before the water is discharged back to its original source.

Well water designs are the most cost effective as the well can also be used for household water. Water quality is important as mineral deposits and organic matter can quickly clog up and damage a geothermal system.
