Water Source Heat Pumps extracts heat from water and converts it into energy to heat your home or business

Water Source Heat Pumps (WSHPs) represent an innovative and efficient approach to home heating. These systems tap into the latent thermal energy found in water, serving as a medium for heat extraction. Through a process of heat exchange, the WSHP draws heat from the water, amplifies it, and then transfers this enhanced heat to warm up the living spaces in a home.

Not only do these pumps harness a naturally occurring resource, but they also operate with higher efficiency when compared to conventional heating systems. By utilizing the consistent temperatures found in water sources, WSHPs can provide sustainable and cost-effective heating solutions for homeowners seeking an environmentally friendly alternative.

Stable Temperatures

WSHPs tap into the constant temperature of water sources, to provide efficient heating and cooling. Water bodies tend to maintain relatively stable temperatures throughout the year. During the winter, WSHPs extract heat from the water to warm your space, while in the summer, they dissipate excess heat into the water to cool your environment.


WSHPs are highly adaptable to various locations, particularly those with access to nearby water bodies. This adaptability extends to system design, where WSHPs can be customized to suit specific requirements. Whether for residential, commercial, or industrial settings, the flexibility of WSHPs allows for tailored solutions that maximize efficiency and comfort while minimizing energy consumption.

Environmental Responsibility

WSHPs are an environmentally responsible choice for heating and cooling. They contribute to lower carbon emissions and align with sustainability goals. By utilising water bodies as a heat exchange medium, WSHPs reduce the need for traditional heating and cooling methods that rely on fossil fuels, thus helping to mitigate the impact of climate change. This eco-friendly approach not only benefits the environment but also supports efforts to transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources, fostering a greener future.

Low Maintenance

WSHPs typically require minimal maintenance compared to some other HVAC systems. The simplicity of their design, coupled with the clean and stable nature of water as a heat exchange medium, results in reduced wear and tear on components. This translates to fewer service calls and lower maintenance costs over the system’s lifespan, providing long-term reliability and peace of mind for homeowners and businesses alike.
